Mr Fothergill’s Flower Seeds, Sunflower Little Dorrit F1


These seeds produce dwarf, compact plants with golden flowers and really dark centres, which I love. These sunflowers are fast growing, and great for successional sowing for flowers all summer. Hardy annuals, and they produce flowers the same year as sown. For an added bonus, seeds harvested from grown plants can be used in baking. Or I enjoy them as a healthy snack. They are attractive to pollinators, plus they can be grown to be used as cut flowers.

    I planted these seeds 4 in a pot, times 4 (total16) with peat free compost on my kitchen windowsill and all but 3 of them started to grow into healthy looking plants within a week. They are now about 6-8 inches tall and I’ve transferred them to the garden. They are still growing OK so I’m hopeful of a good display later in the year.
