Soft yellow blooms with a golden centre. A true classic and everyone’s favourite, there are few other flowers that will invoke the same nostalgia as sunflowers. Charming towards the back of the garden border, or beautiful in a bouquet. A favourite among pollinators.

Planting depth: 1/2”

How to sow:
Direct seeding is highly recommended as plants do not transplant well. Sow when soil has warmed up. Pinching is not necessary.
Sunflowers are easy to grow and will tolerate a range of soil conditions. For cut flowers, harvest as the petals are beginning to open. Leaving the seed heads in the garden will attract birds.
