Advice from the Owner

This was one of several Garden In A Box kits this spring (2023), and they all did great! This one, Splendid Seasons, was in full sun and grew gangbusters! The sunflowers hit 8 feet tall and more (needed stakes). Planted in May, by August, hummingbirds were visiting, especially the Vermillion Bluffs Mexican Sage. Beautiful flowers and great variety of shapes and sizes. Lots of muscle to prepare and install, but very little brain needed. Just follow the instructions.
