A towering, yellow-petalled annual flower that reaches up to ceiling height before its nodding heavy head starts to look downwards under the weight of developing seeds in its very large brown centre. Sunflowers are a draw for bees, butterflies and hoverflies on the hunt for nectar. When the heads start to dry out and seeds are ripe they are great for bringing birds into the garden at the end of summer and hopefully holding onto a few as winter comes round again. Sow into pots until weather is reliably warm and settled then plant out in the garden. May need support. Germination guaranteed.
