Sunflower Seeds - Pike's Peak
Packet content 15 seeds. As sunflowers go, Pike's Peak is a big one; maybe not as tall as Giraffe, but with its much thicker stem, it requires no support, making it an ideal variety for more exposed areas. It produces large, golden flowers which then produce giant seeds.
Sowing Period: February to June
Harvesting/Flowering Period: July to September
Easy to grow and a real favourite with children. Flowers like very large daisies with brightly coloured petals. Sow the seed thinly 1.3cm (½") deep direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed-free soil where the plants are to flower. Germination usually takes 10-15 days. As the seedlings develop, thin them out gradually to achieve a final spacing of 30cm (12"). For early flowering sow in trays indoors in late February-March, transfer into 9cm (3½") pots, grow on then acclimatise before planting outside where the plants are to flower, once the risk of frosts have disappeared.
