Teddy Bear sunflower has a really cute look – in line with puppies and kittens – just in the plant world. You can sow it in April and May and get the rather small sunflowers, which are a kind of “double sunflower”, nice upright growing and densely bushy. It looks really nice, I plant it like a border around the garden – like here in the picture. The bees and butterflies love it! And, if you want the golden sprinkle over the salad, the sunflower petals are edible.
Sowing time: April, May, and June
Planting distance: 30 cm
Height: 0.8-1.0 m
