Description:

In just 110 days from direct sowing, this HEIRLOOM grows 3.6m (12′) tall. Its 60cm (24″) flowers produce delicious and nutritious sunflower seeds, or they can be dried and hung in the garden as a natural bird feeder. Titan sunflower seeds are one of the tallest sunflower varieties available. Plants form a massive trunk and very sturdy root system. We recommend direct sowing over transplanting with the larger sunflower varieties, so that root growth can be continuous and undisturbed. We have never had to stake Titan sunflowers, even in windy gardens.

How To Grow

Sunflowers will grow in just about any well-drained soil, and they are drought tolerant. To grow sunflowers from seed, to grow really big plants with really big flowers, enrich the soil with organic matter and incorporate 2 cups of complete organic fertilizer per 3m (10′) of row, and irrigate regularly. When the plants are 30cm (12) tall, dissolve 5ml (1 tsp) of borax (for boron) in 350 ml (12 fl oz) of water and spread the solution over 5m (15′) of row. Be careful not to over-apply this solution. This application of boron will produce big seeds and flower heads. Do not apply boron to other garden plants. Annual flowers that can grow to incredible heights in just one season.
