There's something special about flowers sown from seeds, a level of magic from something so small becoming so magnificent. Whether it's the mighty sunflower, colourful cosmos or mystical marigold, grab yourself some packs of seeds and build something beautiful with our range at Primrose.
It's recommended that you plant your sunflower seeds in late spring. Many gardeners opt for the month of April as this is when the winter frost has gone from your garden.
Sow your sunflower seeds in small pots first. When there is definitely no frost, you can plant your young sunflowers in warm, moist but well-drained soil. The plant will germinate over the next few months as the temperature increases going into summer.
Are sunflowers easy to grow from seeds?
Sunflower seeds are easy to grow, providing you don't plant them when there is any risk of frost. Your soil must be at least 60 degrees, too, as sunflower seeds prefer warmer soil to grow. You can usually grow sunflowers from the month of April, but some gardeners will have to wait until June, depending on the climate of where they live.
How fast do sunflowers grow from seed?
You can expect your sunflower seeds to grow in 90 days. If you sew the seeds in late spring, you should have beautiful yellow plants by summer.
