Description

A beautifully proportioned, prolific sunflower. The bright yellow flowerheads are borne on short, multi-branching stems and are perfect for spot planting in beds and borders.

Sow outdoors, March-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 30cm (12″). Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted if desired. Water well until young plants are established. Or sow indoors, March-May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, individually in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Keep the compost moist. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm (12″) apart. Flowers: June to September.

Tip: Sow a few seeds in late June and, in most years, you will have blooms until the first frosts.
