Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Try something different in your containers this summer that will really get the neighbours talking. This cheery little helianthus has lax, trailing stems and a multi-branching habit that billow from hanging baskets in a mass of small sunflower blooms. Sunflower 'Inca Gold' can also be grown as spreading groundcover at the front of informal summer borders. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").


Companion planting: Try growing sunflowers with chives to deter aphids.

Feed and water sunflowers regularly throughout summer. Sunflower 'Inca Gold' is a naturally spreading variety and will not require staking. Deadhead faded sunflower blooms to encourage more flowers to be produced.
Pot up sunflower plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until all frost has passed and sunflowers are large enough to be planted outdoors. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting out in borders. Choose a position in full sun that is sheltered from strong winds, on fertile, moist, well drained soil.

non-stop display until December once they got going! 2015-07-01

Just ordered for 2015. Bought in 2014 and they took a while to get going - nearly late June. But then on, wow! Constant flowers but keep deadheading. I live in London so they were still looking good and flowering in December. Beware - you do need to keep the water up to them but when well watered, they are a delight. My best place for them was in good morning sunshine that was shaded in the afternoon heat. Had them in the front window box and everyone complimented me on them.

Bright and cheery display 2014-08-23

These have produced a stunning display, really attractive and wonderfully vigorous. They spread quickly and only one plant in a container takes it over! Very good value.

After a slow start, these cheery little sunflowers soon bushed out as the weather got warmer. They do need watering daily in baskets, but are worth the attention. They have received many appreciative comments so far and season is a long one.
