Add a colorful background or windbreak to your garden. These bright Sunflowers make a large head on a tall-growing stalk, 3 m (10 ft).(Approx. 10 seeds per gram).
Sow seed in the garden in early spring, once the danger of frost is passed. Make sure the soil is well worked. Cover seed with about 1 cm (1/2 in) of soil. Sow 2 seeds per 30 cm (12 in) of row, after germination thin plants to 45 cm (18 in) apart. Ideal for a tall background screen. Attracts birds and the cured seed provides winter feed. Cut heads after florets have withered and hang to dry under cover. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 water soluble fertilizer. Garden spacing 45 cm (18 in) apart.
