Teddy Bear is cute and compact, with spectacular fluffy yellow flowers like a bear's fur! Small enough to grow in pots. Often produces multiple flowers per stem to make a bushy shrub. Great for small gardens.
DESCRIPTION: Dwarf sunflower with large full sunny-yellow flowers. Stems produce many flower heads. Ideal for smaller gardens and pots. PLANTING: Spring to early Summer. 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. Tip prune at the second plant node to encourage dense growth and more flowering. Remove spent flowers to encourage a longer flowering season. 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.
