The “Francis Fundraiser Collection” includes many of our favorite flower varieties for interplanting in the vegetable garden or using to add beauty to any landscape. This collection contains sunflowers of all sizes and the Marigold Sparky Mix. Dwarf varieties are great for creating dimensional plantings with the taller varieties. The standard varieties typically reach 5-7 tall and the giant sunflowers can get as tall as 12′. Stagger the plantings for a beautiful layout of sunflower blooms. All proceeds will be donated to Francis’ Breast Cancer treatment.
Sunflowers have many benefits for a garden or homestead. They are great for feeding pollinators and attracting beneficial insects. They also work well when grown as a cover crop where they act as a soil-cleanser. Sunflowers may be grown as transplants in our heavy-duty seed starting trays or direct-seeded by hand or with a walk-behind Garden Seeder.
