About Sunflowers

SunflowerSunflowers (helianthus annuus) are greatly loved by bees and birds!  They can grow to a variety of heights, maybe 6 or 7 feet or more!  Whilst flowering, the bees will be regular visitors.  Sunflowers will also turn to face the sun for maximum exposure.  They symbolise adoration and loyalty – so are absolutely perfect for a wedding!  Their botanical name derives from the Greek helios, meaning sun and anthos, meaning flower.   Annuus means annual, a plant that sets seed, flowers and dies in one year.

 

Can get 2m or more high!  Make sure you stake them if really tall to avoid the stems flopping over or snapping.

Sunflowers are very easy to grow!  In April/May, fill a small plant pot (about 3 inches wide) with compost and poke in one Sunflower seed.  Cover the compost back over the hole and water.  Place somewhere warm and light to germinate.  The seedling will emerge quite quickly, within a week or.  Grow on until it has outgrown its pot and then plant out into the garden in a sunny spot, maybe against a wall or fence so that it doesn’t blow over easily in the wind.  If you are planting your Sunflower in a more exposed area of the garden, you might find it helpful to stake it to avoid damage to it if it is windy.
