Kids Go Gardening - - Summer -

grow quickly from seed sown straight onto the gar­den. There are lots of dif­fer­ent colours and types to choose from, some tall and some dwarf va­ri­eties too. Be­cause they grow so fast, sun­flow­ers need plenty of food and wa­ter.

DID YOU KNOW:

• In the cen­tre of each sun­flower are hun­dreds of seeds, which birds love to eat. You can also save some seed to grow next sum­mer.

• Sun­flow­ers at­tract ben­e­fi­cial in­sects such as lacewings that eat aphids and other gar­den pests.
