Let’s Plant a Sunflower House
2021 is the Year of the Sunflower so what better time to plant sunflowers in a way that gives the kids a place to play!
Sunflower plants have cheerful blooms − they look very much like faces surrounded by colorful petals! They come in many different sizes. Some sunflowers are as short as two feet tall while others can grow to be 15 feet. The tallest sunflower on record was 25 feet tall! They also come in a wide range of colors including red, orange, yellow, and white. No matter the color, it’s hard not to smile when looking at sunflowers.
Sunflowers are easy to grow. Just plant them when temperatures are warm during the late spring and summer, in a spot with plenty of sun and water. Their seeds are edible for humans and wildlife. A favorite for feeding birds, people also eat the nutritious sunflower kernels and make oil from them, too.
