Growing your own is good for you and good for the planet. It's EASY, it's FUN and nothing beats a bunch of homegrown blooms.

Sunflowers are great for attracting pollinators and are a great source of food for birds.
WILDLIFE FRIENDLY TIPS:
- Leave flowers to turn to seeds in autumn and winter - your garden birds will love to feast on them.
- Cut and dry the stems and use them to create a bee hotel once flowering is over.
- Leave the roots in to return nutrients to the soil.
This no-waste product provides enough colour coordinated super sustainable garden twine to tie and bind your crop and a handy twine cutter made from up-cycled metal waste.
Sow indoors from March. Full instructions come with packet.
