story: in 2020, our russian giant sunflowers grew to be 2.5 metres tall with giant heads. they are incredibly beautiful, and the seeds are tasty.

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, and water regularly.

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!
