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 I sometimes buy the proper seed compost but not always and they always come through whatever one I use. There's a shop by me that sells the big bags of compost dirt cheap so I get them.

I just start them in empty yogurt pots and put holes in the bottom of them so the water can drain away.

The seeds start growing very quickly and in about 3 weeks you'll have to put small sticks in to keep them upright and stop them falling over. I use cocktail sticks to start with and then use canes when they're bigger.

When the plants are about 6inches tall I put them in the ground with a proper cane. They like a lot of sunlight but will grow where its a bit shady as well but they might not grow as tall but the flowers will still open.

They are alright to be watered a lot when they are in the ground but when they are in the pots you shouldn't water them too much or they start rotting when the plant is still little.

I sometimes give them plant food but only when we've got it anyway and they grow the same if I use it or not.

When the flowers are starting to die I get the seeds out of the middle to grow next year and the sunflowers that come from them are always good and very strong.

This year I have got red and yellow sunflowers in the garden. The yellow ones have been open for ages and are dying a bit now but the red ones are just starting to flower so we are going to have these lovely flowers for ages yet.
