Each year me and my little boy plant giant sunflower seeds and compete to see who can grow the tallest (he always wins!).

This year I'd also like to plant a couple of alternate varieties as well, perhaps something a different colour. Can anyone recommend any varieties that have grown well for them please?


Valentine is lovely Leadfarmer

Last year I


grew some sunflowers saved from a lovely rogue one that grew in amongst my Valentines.If you would like some of my saved seed please let me know

Vincents Mixture look good, thanks.


Grown Little leo many times - very nice small compact plants with many flower heads per bush. Ideal for cutting for indoor flower displays if one wishes to do that.
