Do NOTL residents Glenn and Debbie Young have the gardener’s magic touch or is the town’s superior soil the secret?

A 12-foot-tall patch of sunflowers has blosssomed in front of their Niagara-on-the-Lake home.

Glenn says the giant plants grew from seeds that were part of a Cheerios promotion to help the bee population. It’s such a standout that people have asked to take selfies with the towering sunflowers, he said.
