Radiant Detail - Growing sunflowers

Helianthus sp.

Sunflowers are a fantastic easy to grow plant. Just like the monarch's - sunflowers have rapid growth and they stand out in their surroundings. Their large and brightly coloured flower heads are instantly recognisable and bring much joy to the garden. They come in a range of sizes and colours.

Sunflowers make a fantastic first gardening project for children (either at home or in the school environment). I am excited to share seeds and growing information (thanks to Kings Seeds) alongside my children's book: Trixie - Protector of the Bees. Planting sunflowers assists the pollinators by providing a rich nectar and pollen source.
