SUNFLOWER – Teddy Bear (10 Seeds)

Helianthus annuus

Description: A Stunning tight petal large teddy bear sunflower.  A long lasting annual with around 2-3 months of flowering.  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 25cm in diameter and 15cm thick.  Our fevourite thing to grow out of everything!! Your garden will get all the attention with this beauty and kids just love them!

  • Height: 150cm
  • 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: 50 – 60cm 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.  Stop watering when about to flower and only  a little if they start to droop.  Add plenty of blood n bone and compost when planting.
