How to sow sunflowers

How to sow sunflowers

To sow sunflowers is a brilliant way to get children outside and into the garden. In this How To Garden episode Ellen Mary and her little helper go down to the allotment and show us just how easy it is to sow sunflowers so they stand a chance of towering over your garden or allotment.

We do recommend you get them from a seed supplier like Thompson & Morgan to ensure that they have the best chance of germinating.  You can either pop the seeds into pots or sow them directly into the ground.  Just be sure that the last frost has passed. If you haven’t had the last frost you can sow them into pots and leave them on a warm windowsill.
