If you're entering a "tallest sunflower" competition, this is the one to plant. Every kid should get the chance to grow one and measure their height against it. Large seed-rich flower heads on grand stems to 3m - impressive against a clear blue sky.

Helianthus annuus - sunflower 'Giant Russian'

DESCRIPTION: Tallest growing sunflower with giant, seed-rich, bird-attracting yellow flowers. Matures quickly with a single flower, a great choice for gardeners looking to add colour this summer.
PLANTING: Spring to early Summer or in warmer climates, year round. Sow two seeds together directly into garden beds or seed raising mix, apply a generous layer of soil, gently pat down and keep moist. When seedlings are 5cm, thin and keep the most vigorous seedling and transplant to a full sun location in free draining soil.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and during dry periods. Add a slow release fertiliser on planting and follow up with liquid fertiliser applied weekly for best results. Plants may become top heavy when in full flower, use a stake to support the stem.
