Sunflower – Giant Yellow (Organic)
A very large yellow variety of sunflower, producing impressive blooms up to 30cm in diameter. No surprises here! This is a sunflower that does exactly what it says on the tin. Tall and sturdy plants producing huge single yellow flowers. The flowers are much loved by bees and if you leave the plants over the winter they provide a valuable ecological role as winter bird food (the seeds) and a habitat for many insects (the stems). If you have heavy clay soil incorporating the remains of the plants into the soil in spring will lighten the soil due its high carbon content.
We always grow loads sunflowers, dotted in among our other crops. They are really easy and bring such a bold shameless essence of flower to the garden. They are pure flower and nothing else!
