Growing Sunflowers in Your Backyard
If you are looking for an activity to do with your child, one of the simplest and most rewarding activities is growing sunflowers. In addition to being a great way to spend time together, sunflowers are easy to grow and provide plenty of opportunity for observing science in action.
A sunny spot in your backyard (or even a windowsill) is all that you need to get started growing this beautiful flower.
Sunflowers are not picky about soil type or climates. They will grow just as well in rich soil as they will in poor soil, and they enjoy hot dry summers as much as rainy cool winters.
They can adapt so well that they can even be grown indoors! Here’s how: buy some fresh potting soil from the garden center or nursery, spread it out, and then cover it with a layer of mulch.
