This flower has very tall stalks with large heads which blooms mid to late summer. The seeds are a great snack or use them for bird food. Wonderful flower to attract birds & bees to your garden! Sunflowers are so easy to grow & they love heat! Great gardening project for kids.
Sunflower seeds are a great snack, high concen tration of vitamin E, and also they contain magnesium and selenium. They also lower cholesterol.
I put them in salads, and hot cereal. Although these seeds can be purchased at most stores, chemicals used are unknown. Grow your own so you know you are giving your family organic healthy snacks.
Plant in roughened soil about 1/2" deep, 2 weeks to germinate. Keep seeds moist until germination. Plant will grow 8-12 feet tall. It is truly spectacular!
These are fresh from my garden!
These work well to hide fences, they will grow to 12' tall and 15" across. May need to stake as they get top heavy.
