Last year I grew two sunflowers. One was a yellow and red paquito, and the other was an irish eyes. There was another sunflower I had, as well, that was in a packet of flower seeds to attract birds. It was a yellow single stem dwarf sunflower, perhaps a sunspot. I liked that one the most, although it didn’t last very long.

Watching the sunflowers grow, and watching the heads open up, I found exciting, and it was always a pleasure to look out of the window and see them all there.

Everybody should feel the same excitement, so I plan to grow around 30 sunspot sunflowers in coir pots and give them away (hopefully I will get hold of some buckets to give for potting on). I hope to put up some leaflets about this.

If you would like a sunflower, do contact me at jasmine at ideasandinformation dot org dot uk, and I will let you know when the seedlings are ready. I can’t remember when they are supposed to be sown, but all will become clearer when I get the seeds…
