“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. ” Alfred Austin
Who doesn’t love the happy face of the sunny sunflower? What so many people don’t realize is there are a plethora of different varieties of this beautiful flower. Did you know there are over 60 varieties to choose from? Unfortunately if you are looking to purchase your seeds from local stores, and don’t get me wrong here~ you all KNOW I am all about shopping local for what you can find~ but if you can’t find it local, then the next best thing is to shop from family owned companies online. Supporting locally owned businesses can be done is so many ways.
You can find many of these sunflower varieties from reputable seed companies like Baker Creek Heirloom, Annie’s Heirloom Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, and so many others. If you missed my post on how to order seeds, you can find that HERE!
