How to grow
1. Sunflowers can be sown straight in to the ground where they are going to flower, so make sure the space you are going to sow is weed free, by using a trowel to remove the weeds. They do really well in big pots or against back walls.
2. Rake the soil to a crumbly texture. Be sure to leave the right amount of space between each plant.
3. Place the seed in carefully and cover them up with soil. Don’t forget to water the seeds gently. As they grow, if the plants are crowded, then thin them out leaving the strongest, tallest plants.
4. Be careful, as slugs and snails like to eat the new shoots. You may want to protect the seedlings by cutting the top off a plastic bottle and placing it over your seedlings.
5. As your sunflower begins to grow taller than you, you will need to help support the stem. You can use a stick near the stem, tied loosely with string.
6. Watch your sunflower grow and grow and grow.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
