Description

Sunflower Seeds ‘Giant Teddy Bear’ will grow into a towering display of fun, fluffy flowers. Sunflowers are known as the friendly giants of the garden, adding bold, cheerful color in the summer months and attracting a parade of pollinators as they bloom. There are a wide range of varieties, from dwarf to wild and everything in between, making it easy for almost any gardener with a sunny spot in the garden to grow these classic favorites. For cut flowers, harvest just before the bloom is fully open. Early morning is the best time to cut, to encourage longer vase life. At the end of the season, harvest seeds for snacking, birdfeeders, or future planting.
