Approved Suttons seeds retailer.
Packet Content 20 seeds
Flowers are also edible
Attractive to insects and birds
Dark-centred, lemon-yellow, semi-double flowers on multi-branching stems throughout the summer.
These sunflowers look very cheerful in the border, but will also last well in a vase after being cut.
In the garden the flowers will attract all kinds of beneficial insects, and later, after they have set seed, birds will find them irresistible too.
The flowers are said to be edible, the buds tasting like artichokes, while the petals have a bittersweet flavour. Flowers late June-September.
Easy to grow, sunflowers have always been a real favourite with younger gardeners.
Producing flowers like very large daisies with brightly coloured petals, they make a striking addition to any garden.
Sow into warm, moist soil at a depth of 1.3cm (½") in rows about 40cm (16") apart or into pots or tubs. (Germination 7-14 days). Thin or transplant seedlings to 40cm (16") between plants. Can also be started early indoors and transplanted outside after the last frost. Grow in a sunny site and keep moist.
