Details

A stunning multi-headed, bicoloured variety on tall strong stems. Excellent at the back of borders and as striking cut flower. Sunflowers are very easy to grow, they come in all sizes for borders, beds, pots and containers, adding warmth and vibrancy to any outdoor living space – large or small. They look dramatic combined with other easy annuals such as Cosmos, Coreopsis or Cornflower. Sunflowers are long-lasting whether used in the garden or as cut flowers, and attract a wealth of beneficial insects. Their spent heads can also be left to feed birds throughout winter.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow outdoors where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 45cm (18”). 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 (½”) deep, individually in pots of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 45cm (18”) apart.

Hint's & Tips

Easy to grow but if garden pests are a problem start seeds indoors. Bees are attracted to the flowers to feed on the nectar produced.
