Year of the Sun Flower

There is still time to sow sunflowers and later sowing will have plants in flower when the garden club members return for the new school year in September. We are hopeful the dwarf sunflower seedlings seen here being potted on at St. Michaelís School into 15 cm pots will have budded up by the end of July. We are growing three heights, the tallest Giraffe (Suttons), some medium height to 1.5 metres- cut flower kinds and the really short ones down to 45 cms ideal for flower pot growing. All will now take quite a lot of water as they grow very fast. Giraffe is a British variety with the tallest plant selected for seed each year for many years. Schools growing several may like to follow this lead and select their tallest or largest flower as a seed producer.
