Sunflower Sunbird Flower Heirloom Seeds 2g

$5.49 AUD

Botanical name: Helianthus annuus

Prepare the soil:

Sunflowers prefer well-draining soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.5. Remove any weeds or debris from the planting area and loosen the soil with a garden fork or tiller.

Sow the seeds:

Plant the sunflower seeds directly into the soil after the last frost date in your area. Dig a small hole about 1-2 inches deep and place one seed in each hole. Space the holes according to the recommended spacing for your chosen variety.

Water regularly:

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged until the seeds germinate, which usually takes around 7-10 days. After germination, water deeply once a week, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings

Provide support:

As your sunflowers grow taller, they may need support to prevent them from toppling over in strong winds. You can use stakes or trellises to provide support for their stems.

Fertilize as needed:

Sunflowers are generally low-maintenance plants, but you can apply a balanced fertilizer once or twice during their growing season to promote healthy growth.

Protect from pests:

Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids or slugs, which can damage sunflower plants. Use organic pest control methods or consult with a local garden center for appropriate solutions.


Sunflowers typically bloom in late summer or early fall. You can harvest the flowers when they are fully open by cutting them with sharp scissors or pruners. Allow the flower heads to dry in a well-ventilated area before removing the seeds.

Remember, growing sunflowers requires patience and care. With proper attention to watering, fertilizing, and pest control, you can enjoy the beauty of these vibrant flowers in your garden. Happy gardening!
