Sunflower Moulin Rouge Seeds
Info: The sunflower Moulin Rouge has large, wine-red to rust-red flowers that are a real eye-catcher in the garden. In addition, the flowers have no pollen and are therefore particularly suitable as cut flowers. The 1.5 to 2 meter large plants form several blooms at a stalk. If you remove withered flowers in time, you can extend the flowering period into September.
Sunflowers are grateful and undemanding garden flowers, which are particularly beautiful as background plants. These vibrant blooms are also known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden as well, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and birds.
Sowing & care: Sowing takes place directly from April outdoors. Sowing depth is about 1cm at a distance of 40-60 cm. A pre-culture in the house is also possible and brings an earlier bloom. Sunflowers like a sunny, wind-protected location and a loamy, nutrient-rich garden soil, which may also contain some sand for better drainage. They do not like waterlogging because then they tend to root rot. Sunflowers need many nutrients and are grateful for fertilizer or nettle liquid manure.
