Sunflower Sunbird Flower Seeds – Organic

Sunflowers add joy to a Summer garden, attract colourful king parrots and the flower petals are edible and brighten up a salad. The tall plants provide support for climbing beans and are useful as a Summer windbreak. Sunflowers are a must for a child’s garden, the sheer size of the plants and the way the flowers follow the sun are intriguing for kids. It is a warm season, frost tender annual, usually 2 – 3 m tall. The seeds germinate best at 20 – 25°C; sow Spring and Summer most areas. The seeds take 10 – 14 days to germinate but are vulnerable to being eaten by birds and rodents. Protect the seed with an upturned pot until the seed has germinated. Sow seed 6 – 10 mm deep in full sun, direct into a garden bed is best. Soil required is fertile, well-drained; with a preferred pH 5.5 – 7.5. Plants do better with consistent moisture. Space rows 60 cm apart with 50 – 60 cm between plants. Protect seedlings from snails, slugs and grasshoppers.

‘Sunbird’ produces large grey sunflower seeds which are excellent as human food or poultry forage. Sunbird is both drought tolerant and disease resistant. The plants grow 2 – 2.5 metres tall.
