Description

Sunflowers are a great addition to every garden. Their impressive size and beautiful big bright flowers which look like little suns are simply emblematic for a nice mixed garden. And the name 'Sunflower' also tells its own story, as the plant
prefers a particularly sunny and warm location.
They can be grown in large pots or directly in a flower bed. However, since they are deep-rooting plant which consume lots of nutrients, they need lots of space, a deep, nutrient-rich soil and an abundant water supply.



Package with approx. 20 sunflower seeds
