Dwarf Sunspot Sunflower is a variety of sunflowers known for its small size and yellow petals with dark brown centers. This variety typically grows to be about 2-3 feet tall and they are great as cut flowers or for planting in smaller gardens. They are also great to grow with kids because of their manageable size. They are certified as organic.
To grow Dwarf Sunspot Sunflower, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds in the spring, after the last frost date, or in the fall. Space the seeds about 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 inch apart in rows.
Water the sunflowers regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Thin the seedlings to about 6 inches apart when they are large enough to handle.
Fertilize the sunflowers with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Stake the sunflowers if necessary to prevent them from falling over.
