Suttons Sunflower Seeds Garden Statement

No longer available
Approved Suttons seeds retailer. Packet Content 20 seeds Multi-branching stems 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.
