Perodovik Sunflower

Helianthus annuus

$4.95

40 seeds
Very large, single golden yellow heads shine on top of 6’ plants. This is a tall version of the commercial Russian oilseed variety which is also used in commercial birdseed. Seeds are small, black and edible. Kids love to grow sunflowers and Perodovik makes a fun sunflower house in which the flowers are planted in a circle. Also great for feeding wild birds. Homesteaders can press the seeds to make homemade sunflower oil for cooking, soaps, and body oil. Clint Freund grew these fun sunflower seeds. CC

Sunflowers are easy to grow from seed outside provided that they are kept moist during germination & seedlings are protected from slugs (use Sluggo). Also, protect plants from groundhogs & deer. Sow seeds outside 6/1-6/30, 6” apart. Thin to 18” for full size plants.
