Sunflower Floristan

£3.50

An unusual bi-colour modern heirloom, its dark wine-red and yellow appearance stands out in the veg patch or garden. It will produce multiple heads on each stem and is commonly grown as a cut flower. We love this as an edible though with seed used for winter microgreens or roasted and sprinkled on salad.

Average 20 seeds.

Sowing info

Sow sunflower seeds into individual pots of peat-free, multi-purpose compost in April. Sow one seed per 7.5cm pot. Push the seed 1.5cm into the compost and water in. Place undercover in a greenhouse or similar. When your plants reach about 30cm tall, plant them out into the garden after all risk of frost has passed. Plants grow quickly, so don’t be tempted to start too early.

Growing info

Sunflowers need sun. They do best in fertile soil in a sheltered spot, but will also do well in containers. However, if you want your sunflower to grow really tall, it’s best to plant it in the ground. Tall sunflowers may need staking, however you can strengthen sunflower stems by brushing your hand regularly across seedlings before they are planted out to simulate wind.

Sowing Months: February – May
Harvest Months: July – October
Position: Full sun
