helianthus annuus


story: sunflowers are easy to grow, and are very rewarding. this one is a large sunflower with large seeds for eating or feeding birds. this batch of seeds was gifted to us from tim!

sow: indoors in april to may. pot on into larger pots with multipurpose compost, before planting outside once all risk of frost has passed. 

requirements: enriched soil, regular watering and staking.

harvesting: early autumn.


please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
