Growing sunflowers

Children love growing plants from seeds and sunflowers are one of the most rewarding plants as they grow so fast.

You will need:
A packet of sunflower seeds
3″-4″ plant pots to start off the seeds
Larger plant pots (to transplant the plants into)


  1. Plant the seeds, one in each small pot.
  2. Water well and leave in a warm spot like a windowsill to germinate (this should happen quite quickly).
  3. Keep well watered.
  4. When the plants have outgrown the small pots, transplant them into the large pots or, if you prefer, straight into the garden. With lots of watering the sunflowers should grow very tall.
