25 MILLION POUNDS WORTH OF FAME Review with images

AdvantagesVery easy to grow - children love them

DisadvantagesThe tallest types need staking with a LONG stick or they're likely to droop.

"...the face of a mature sunflower without wanting to touch the seeds. My cousin ‘Incredible’ is very popular with those ladies who aren’t drawn to the bigger, more strapping types. His bright yellow flowers are reminiscent of traditional sunflowers but as he rarely grows to more than about 16 inches, he’s the perfect company on the sunny patio. ‘Incredible‘ has a cute brother, too. His name’s ’Teddy Bear’. He’s slightly bigger than his brother ..." Read review

They just make me SMILE! Review with images

AdvantagesLarge bright yellow flowers which make you smile

Disadvantagesthe tall ones can get very tall!

"...They are very partial to sunflower seedlings and if you are not careful will demolish the whole lot in one night. The seeds will only take a week or so to start to germinate so keep your eye on them. I would recommend sowing 2 or 3 together and then as the seedlings develop thin out the weaker ones and you can even gently transplant stronger ones elsewhere if things get a little crowded. The plants want to be around 2 feet apart to grow to maturity. ..." Read review

Easy To Grow And Beautiful

AdvantagesEasy to grow and make the garden look beautiful

DisadvantagesNone

"Sunflowers are one of the easiest things to grow from a seed and they are beautiful when the flowers open out because the flowers look so massive on the tall stalk and it looks like magic that the plant can hold itself up right. You buy a packet of 10 or 20 seeds and that costs about £2 and if you look after them you will get most of them growing and hardly any of the seeds die off. I always use compost from the shop and ..." Read review

How Tall Will Yours Grow?

AdvantagesLarge flowers, easy to grow, cheap, great to involve children.

DisadvantagesNone at all.

"...have yet to have a sunflower die on me. I would definitely recommend the 'Russian Giant' they produce lovely flowers with little effort and have a huge novelty factor, especially for children. Although they should be grown in the sun the patch I grow mine I find that although they don't grow as tall as they could I don't find it affects them too much and it isn't a full time sunny spot it is in the shade a lot. ..."

Facing towards the sun

Advantages easy to grow

Disadvantages?

"...Vincent van Gogh painted his sunflower pictures in 1888. There are many other paintings of sunflowers they are such a beautiful flower, big and bright. Sunflowers are very easy to grow. They are perfect for a first flower for a child to grow. So do you know what a sunflower is? A sunflower, Latin name Helianthus annuus belonging to the daisy family. It is an annual a yellow flower hence the name sun. The centre has often a contrasting brown colour ..." Read review

A Sun-loving plant with a smile!

AdvantagesBirds love the seeds

DisadvantagesNone

"Sunflowers or to know them by their Latin name, Helianthus annus, are a welcome addition to many gardens. They can be a focal point grown along a wall or fence, where their bright yellow, large-headed flowers draw your eye upwards. They are a hardy annual plant. They are planted from large seeds from March to May where they are going to flower, or alternatively, as I have done, planted them in individual small 5 inch pots of compost and started ..."
