Sunflower - Double Shine F1 Hybrid
This is a quality Sunflower with hybrid vigour as well as being pollen-free, making a stunning addition to borders as well as an intriguing cut flower. The golden-yellow, semi-double blooms have attractive crested centres, and flower over a long period. Pinch out the main shoot when 60cm high to encourage multi-flowering.
Sow early spring to early summer outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 12mm deep in rows 45cm apart. Germination usually takes approximately 21 days. When large enough to handle thin out to 45cm apart. They prefer a sunny open site but will grow in most sites and soils.
