Description – Sunflowers that can grow as tall as a house! A fabulous easy-to-grow variety that children in particular will love to watch growing taller and taller. Probably the tallest variety available – perfect for sunflower growing competitions!
Sowing – Sow thinly, 12mm (½in) deep in drills 45cm (18in) apart in well-cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Germination usually takes about 21 days. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 45cm (18in) apart. Alternatively, sunflowers can be sown indoors in late winter/early spring. Sow individually into 7.5cm (3in) pots at a temperature of 20-30°C (68-86°F). Grow on in good light, and plant out when all risk of frost is passed.
Flowers – July to October
