  • Popular with pollinators

Sunflower ‘Soleil Red’ produces vivid flowers that are fantastic for cutting, with deep red centres and golden tips. It produces multiple secondary flowers as well, making a big impact in any border. The bright, nectar-rich flowers are very attractive to bees. This popular half-hardy annual is easy to grow from seed and a great way to get kids into gardening.

Sow indoors

Fill a small (7-8cm) pot with seed compost, shake and level firm with the base of another pot. Water well with a fine rose. Sow seeds individually into compost, pushing seeds to 1cm deep. Place in a propagator at 15-20°C or cover pot with cling film and leave in a warm room.

Grow on

When shoots appear, remove cling film. Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. Grow on in a minimum temperature of 10°C.

Plant out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when the risk of frost has passed. Water well until established.

Sow outdoors

Sow seeds in pre-watered soil at a depth of 1.5cm in their flowering positions. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established. Thin out as required.

Tips

Sunflower seeds are not only for wild birds. Cut and hang the mature sunflower seed head upside down in a warm, well-ventilated room. Once dry push the seeds out of the head and store in a dry cloth bag. Eat as required.
