Mexican Sunflower Tithonia Torch Seeds
Info: Mexican Sunflower Tithonia Goldfinger is a beautiful annual plant with eye-catchingly, brilliant red-coloured flowers. From July to October it produces its beautiful flowering splendour tirelessly. It is great for hedges or tall borders as well as a good cut flower.
Sowing & care: Sow seeds under glass from the end of March. Surface sow onto moist well-drained seed compost and just cover with soil. Acclimatise and plant outside once danger of frost has passed with 45cm spacing. The Mexico sunflower loves sunny to full sunny places and fresh, humus soils that should not dry out. It is recommended to use compost and organic fertilizer (e.g. horn flakes) in spring.
