Mike and Diane

Mike is diagnosed with centronuclear myopathy and in 2011 him and his wife Diane  chose to grow a dwarf variety of sunflower called Pacino. They started their seeds off in the bottom of recycled plastic milk bottles which were placed outside during the day and taken back inside at night. The plants were later transferred into bigger pots to give the roots room to grow. The technique worked well as by July they had pots full of sunflowers.
