Children in Need Sunflower Pudsey
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with BBC Children in Need, launching two seed packets for children – Sunflower Pudsey and Pumpkin Pudsey. 30p from each packet sold will benefit BBC Children in Need, to help make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK.
Let’s join together and have some fun growing the tallest sunflower and scariest pumpkin and help make a difference.
A hardy annual, flowers the same year as sown. Easy, fast growing with huge heads on giant stems. A favourite with children.
30p from each packet sold will benefit BBC Children in Need (charity number 802052 in England
& Wales and SC039557 in Scotland). BBC Children in Need, Pudsey Bear and Blush are trademarks of the BBC and are used under licence.
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow outdoors where they are to flower, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 45cm. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted if desired. Water well until young plants are established. Or sow indoors 1.5cm deep, individually in pots of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or green house. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 45cm apart.
Hint's & Tips
Seeds harvested from grown plants can be used in baking. Packet seeds are not for consumption. For details, please refer to website or send SAE.
