Sunflowers: How to grow

Sunflowers are so easy to grow and provide striking colour and enjoyment for children and adults alike.  There are so many colours to choose from such as the classic ‘Sunflower Giant Single’ to the red ‘Moulin Rouge.’ 

Sow sunflower seeds directly into the ground or in pots March to May.

If sowing in pots use Gro-Sure Seed & Cutting Compost. If sowing directly incorporate organic matter such as Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure.

Plant in well-drained soil in full sun.

Most varieties of sunflower will require staking to prevent damage occurring.

Feed using Gro-Sure All Purpose Plant Food.

When plants are small protect from slug damage using Eraza Slug and Snail Killer or Earth Matters Slug Blocker Granules.
