Free Sunflower seeds with every seed order at Mr Fothergill’s

Free Sunflower Pacino ColaAnyone who places a seed order from the spring edition of Mr Fothergill’s mail order catalogue, published on 28 February 2015, may claim a free packet of sunflower seed in celebration of what has been declared the Europe-wide Year of the Sunflower.  The variety Pacino Cola (20 seeds per packet) is compact at just 50cm (20in) high, but produces plenty of medium to large blooms on well-branched plants all through the summer.

The Year of the Sunflower was the idea of Fleuroselect, the organisation which assesses new flower varieties from around the world to determine their suitability for European conditions.  Mr Fothergill’s Tracy Collacott is the sole UK seed company representative on the Fleuroselect Home Gardening committee.  “We hope as many people as possible will grow sunflowers in 2015, and to set the ball rolling we are delighted to send all our spring customers a free packet of this beautiful variety, which is particularly easy to grow and tailor-made for first-time gardeners”, says Tracy

Sunflower Pacino Cola has golden petals and contrastingly dark centres.  The neat, compact plants are ideal in beds, at the front of borders or in large terracotta pots, where they are sure to attract attention.  During the summer the large heads attract a wide range of beneficial and pollinating insects, while in autumn wild birds can feed on the seed heads.

You can order Pacino Cola or any other sunflower seeds from our extensive range from Mr Fothergill’s on the website, or by mail order from our catalogue.
