Sunflower - Harlequin Mix F1
This is an exclusive bicoloured blend of richly coloured sunflowers including a very unusual rose pink shade. This variety is long flowering, with multi-headed stems of 15cm diameter, pollen-free blooms. This is a welcome addition to borders or as a cut flower. Height: 120-150cm.
Sow March to May thinly 12mm deep in drills 30cm apart in well cultivated soil raked to a fine tilth. Germination usually takes around 10-21 days. Alternatively/ you can sow indoors in late winter/early spring for earlier flowering. Sow individually into 7.5cm pots at 20-30C. When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 3cm apart.
