Description – Whenever Little Miss Sunshine wants to cheer people up, she gives them a packet of sunflower seeds. She shows them how to plant them, one to a pot, or in the ground and how to water them.
Sowing – Sow seeds 1cm (½in) deep in small pots of compost.
Growing – You should talk to your sunflower plants as they start to grow because it keeps them happy and helps them grow really tall. Then when the big, round sunflowers appear, they’ll look like sunny, funny faces and make everyone who sees them smile. See if you can see the bees and butterflies smiling too!
Harvest – July to September
