Ratings & Reviews

Mexican Sunflower- Goldfinger

Germinates easily when planting the seed vertically with the sharp end pointing downwards and the very top of the seed exposed to light when starting off in a small container. So far one young plant (about 6 cm high and grown in a peat pot) has tolerated some hot days (Perth, WA) after being put into the soil a week or so ago.
