FLOWERS – SUNFLOWER SUNBIRD
Flowers – Sunflower Sunbird
This sunflower variety produces large grey striped sunflower seeds which are perfect. Grows huge 2-3.2 meters tall, has a large yellow face & is drought tolerant. It is one of the old-time favorites for the garden. Easy to grow & great for bees. The seeds are edible & deliciously nutty; each head will bring hundreds of seeds. Nip the leaves on the lower stem to make the plant grow taller. Feed the bird’s morning & evening, the bees all day and give yourself a nutritious snack & something beautiful to look at.
Sunflowers are annuals that can be sown where they are to flower. Ensure that they are planted in a fertile, well-drained, sunny position. Sow seeds directly into the garden about 30cm apart. As general rule seeds can be sown to double the depth of the seed & covered with soil. It is important to water regularly & to keep the bed weed free. Water with a liquid fertilizer every 2 – 3 weeks to boost the height.
