"I love trying out as many of our new seed varieties as possible. When we launched Sunflower Helios Flame, I was eager to give it a go. Every plant I grew put on a brilliant show of flowers. At the end of the 2015 season, one of my plants had an amazing 23 seed heads. What a result from one easy to sow sunflower seed - a long season of colour for me and a tasty autumn treat for the birds that visit my garden".- Kris Collins, T&M Gardening Expert
