Description – A hardy perennial sunflower from T&M’s own breeding programme. This is an unusual sunflower with bright golden, chocolate-scented flowers making it a real stand-out plant in sunny beds and borders.

Sowing – Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth. Sow 20mm (¾in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Thin out young plants to 23cm (9in) apart.

Growing – Sow seeds individually in 7.5cm (3in) pots and place on a warm windowsill or in a heated propagator at a temperature of 18-21C (65-70F), until after germination which usually takes 20-30 days.

Aftercare – Grow on seedlings in a cold frame and gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out 45-60cm (18-24in) apart, after all risk of frost has passed.

Flowers – July to September
