Description

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.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
