    How to use

    What you need to do:
    1- Prepare your flower bed in a sunny garden spot by mixing in lots of organic material.

    2- Press half –a-fingernail deep holes10cm apart in the soil, put one seed in each hole and cover with soil.

    3- After about 10-14 days look out for the seedlings! Feed your plants with liquid fertilizer every week so they grow strong and healthy.

    4- Remove the weaker seedlings so the stronger ones have about 50cm on all sides to grow.

    5- Watch your prize sunflower grow! Sunflower roots can grow to 120cm below the soil surface so water them well! When the seeds on your flower head are dry, collect them for a tasty snack or to make a bird feeder.
