If you are looking for a fun flower that is easy to grow and makes a big impact in your garden I suggest sunflowers. This year I purchased a couple of packets of sunflower seeds from Lowes and finally planted them towards the end of June. I wasn’t expecting too much as I just half hazardly plopped the seeds into the dirt but low and behold…big beautiful sunflowers!
I wish I had known years ago how easy sunflowers are to grow from seed. They are dirt cheap too. They come in a variety of colors and sizes. This year I planted the standard yellow and a bright burgundy color. Next year I want to try out some different pink ones and some of the giant variety.
Sunflowers can get a little top-heavy so you may have to stake them if they start to get a bit wobbly or if the weather gets too windy or wet. They make a big statement in your garden and I am planning on planting them in pretty much any empty space I can next year.
What flowers have you grown easily from seeds? Are there other ones I have been missing out on?
