    Sunflowers are universally loved, and as they are so easy to grow, they are perfect for both the novice gardener, or a child who is keen to try out some basic gardening skills. 'Topolino' is a dwarf form, so it will grow well in a pot, and as this kit contains all the necessary tools, it could not be easier!

  • Indoor Growing Instructions: Plant from March onwards. Empty the compost into the pot and plant 3-5 seeds on and cover with a thin layer of compost and gently water. Place the pot in a warm sunny area. Water regularly, never allowing the compost to dry out. Turn occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light.
