Helianthus annuus
FLOWER-SUNFLOWER-EVENING SUN A Giant of a sunflower with colors ranging from red, mahogany red, burgundy, russet-bronze & vivid gold, all in bicolor blends. Plants grow 6 to 8 feet tall with a number of secondary blooms. Blazing with color in your garden, as brilliant & bold as a summer sunset, Evening Sun is a must-have for any sunflower enthusiast! Summer isn’t summer without sunflowers, they not only look fabulous but are also magnets for beneficial insects.

Sunflowers are annuals that can be sown where they are to flower. Ensure that they are planted in a fertile, well-drained, sunny position in the garden. Sow seeds directly into the garden about 30cm apart. As a general rule seed can be sown to double the depth of the seed and cover with soil. It is important to water the seeds regularly and to keep the bed weed free. Water with a liquid fertilizer (Seasol) every 2 to 3 weeks to boost the height.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
