Sunflower ‘Teddy Bear’ is a short, bushy plant with fluffy, golden-yellow blooms that appear from mid-summer to the first frost in autumn. The mature size of Teddy Bear sunflower plants is 4 to 5 feet (1.4 m.). Growing Teddy Bear sunflowers by seed isn’t complicated. The most important thing is to plant seeds where your Teddy Bear sunflower plants will be exposed to full sunlight. Well-drained soil is also an absolute requirement for any type of sunflower.

Plant Teddy Bear sunflower seeds after you’re sure all danger of frost has passed. Prepare the soil prior to planting sunflowers by digging a generous amount of compost, well-rotted manure, or other organic matter into the top 15-20 cm of soil. Sow seeds in groups of three, at a depth of ½ inch. Thin the plants to a distance of 40-60 cm when the true leaves appear. Water as needed to keep the soil moist, but not drenched, until your sunflower ‘Teddy Bear’ plants are established

Sunflower seeds should be direct sown in the garden. If starting 3-4 weeks early plant in large cow pots so roots are not disturbed when transplanting into the garden.
