How To Grow Giant Yellow Sunflower From Seed: For early blooming Sunflowers, the seeds can be started inside in pots or seedling modules from February to March. Sow 1 seed per pot/cell. After the seedlings germinate and become established, transplant them into bigger pots, or directly to their final spot in the garden once the risk of heavy frost has passed.

Alternatively, sow directly into your flower bed from mid April onwards, sowing 2 seeds every 40cm.

Sunflowers will need to be supported by a stake or similar as they develop and grow taller. This classic variety can grow over 2 metres in height. It produces large yellow flowers, with a dark brown centre.
