SUNFLOWER – Flare (10 Seeds)

Helianthus annuus

Description: A premium variety of miniature sunflowers, great for kids This variety is superior to sunny in that all seeds planted at the same time will flower at the same time so great for decorations, events or selling in pots as they are all ready at once.  Stems can be used as cut flowers, but they are a bit heavy so not so much for the cut flower industry but a great show piece at home. Main flower is the about 12cm in diameter and 3cm thick.

  • Height: 40cm
  • Flower heads: Multiple heads, one large then gradually smaller
  • Germination: 3-7 days, temp above 18oC
  • Sowing: 1cm deep. Start in pots or direct in ground (if snails and birds are not an issue)
  • Spacing: 20 – 30cm apart
  • Soil fertility: Rich compost filled, well-draining soil. Sunflowers have a high potassium requirement and ensure your soil is not boron deficient.

Growing Tips: Water deeply occasionally rather than regular short sprinkles.  Concentrate water towards the base of the plant rather than the leaves to avoid disease issues. Add plenty of blood n bone and compost when planting.
