What are Sunflowers? 

Sun Flowers (Helianthus annuus) are the quintessential summer flower.  This annual has velvety yellow petals, silver foliage and textural dark brown seeds in the centre. Love sunflowers in your Mediterranean garden.  

This dwarf variety has a short stem and is ideal for a pot or in a border garden.  It won't take up as much space as the full growing varieties and only grows to about 100 cm high.  

Culinary Uses for Sunflowers (Incredible Dwarf)

Sunflower seeds need to be processed if you would like to eat them (wait until the end of the season before harvesting, and be sure to protect your harvest from the birds.)

Enjoy toasted sunflower seeds as a grazing or lunch box snack, sprinkled over a salad or in Mediterranean cuisine.  

Growing Conditions - Sunflower (Incredible Dwarf) Seeds  

 

Sunflowers are a medium-care plant.  Sunflowers love the sun (obviously!).  They adapt to most soil conditions but prefer a neutral ph.  These flowers are hungry and will need food throughout the growing season (worm tea is ideal).  Although sunflowers survive a mild period of dry weather, they don't tolerate frost or wind.  

Chives, squash, cucumbers are good companion plants for Sunflowers, but avoid planting near potatoes.

    We offer a replacement guarantee

    To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

    If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  

     

    Where do you deliver to? 

    We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

    South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

    While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

    We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

    Do you deliver to post office boxes?

    Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
