Sunflower - Bambino
Sunflower Bambino produces dwarf, single, lemon-yellow medium sized flowers with dark centres. This is a non-branching variety which can reach a height of 40cm, which makes them the ideal choice for using as cut flowers, containers or borders.
Sow from April to May thinly, 12mm deep in drills, 45cm apart, in well cultivated soil raked to a fine tilth. Germination usually takes 15-21 days. When large enough to handle, thin to 45cm apart. For earlier sowings, sow indoors, individually in 7.5cm pots at 20-25°C. When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost, in a well-drained soil in full sun. Flowers from July to September.
