How to Germinate Helianthus Annuus
Easily Grown from seed
Grow as soon as the last frost has gone Start outside or inside in a pot early
Soak your seeds overnight to give them a head start.
Prepare a pot or plant cells with a seed compost and stand your pot or cells in the water.
Sow 1 -3 seeds per pot,push them into the soil but do not cover!
Now you need to create a humid atmosphere with clingfilm,if using a pot just pull the Clingfilm tight over the top .
Within a few hours you should see condensation if you dont the clingfilm isnt tight enough or air is getting in.
With cells you do the same thing but will need to cover the seeds and the base and the sides to create the humid enviroment.
Place in a warm sunny spot germination can take 6-14 days
Keep the seeds warm sunny and moist
As each seedling becomes big enough start aclimatising to the outside and position in full sun towards the back of your border
