Sunflower 'Red Sun'
This is a spectacular and unusual variety of sunflower - stunning dark red flowers with dark brown centres on tall stems with oval to heart-shaped, toothed, hairy, dark green leaves . Brilliant for the back of borders and makes for a beautiful cut flower in your home. A favourite for children to grow.
For best results, sow seed in individual 10cm pots of moist seed compost in April to May, cover with cling film and place on a sunny windowsill or greenhouse bench. Remove the cling film once the seeds have germinated, and water plants regularly, allowing the water to drain. Pot on into larger pots with multipurpose compost, before eventually planting outside once all risk of frost has passed.
