Sunflower Seeds – Helianthus Annuus, ‘Russian Giant’ – 10 seeds in each pack.
Sunflowers are one of our tallest and brightest annuals. Renowned for being the happiest of flowers, these hardy yellow blooms will uplift the spirits of any garden. The seeds are easy to germinate and fast to develop, so they make a wonderful choice for children who can watch in awe as they grow. These ‘Russian Giant’ sunflowers can reach heights of up to 3 metres tall. Best sown in spring or summer for mid-summer to early-autumn flowering. Sunflowers provide a valuable source of food and shelter to bees and butterflies throughout the summer months. And wild birds will enjoy feasting on the seed heads in the autumn, so they’re perfect for helping a wide range of wildlife. The meaning of sunflowers stems mostly from their namesake, our Sun. They are the epitome of summer and symbolise joy, nourishment and longevity of life. As well as adoration, strength and loyalty.
