The GrowBar is a cleverly curated seed collection nestled in neat, fertile coir bags, ready to grow. Just add water! See also our sets where we have combined one with a Hachiman Pot & Plate making the perfect, and unique, gift for anyone!
This GrowBar contains just the one seed type; high quality Sunflowers allowing you to fully enjoy growing the jolliest of garden flowers! The cheerful golden faces will bloom on impressive towering stems, and produce tasty seeds beloved by birds.
Sunflowers grown in the ground will likely be larger and more impressive. Use a sturdy stake to support them, as the wind may catch the heavy heads and cause the stems to bend or snap.
Germination Dates: February - June
Start by unwrapping your GrowBar and place it with the brown protective paper facing upwards, into a container with plenty of space to allow it to expand; a takeaway food tray is ideal. Gently pour half a litre of water into the tray and position indoors on a warm, bright sunny windowsill. The seeds will need to be a cosy 18°-22° to germinate.
Water regularly and ensure the Growbar is perfectly moist, it should remain the colour of a rich dark ginger cake.
After a few weeks you should have a bar neatly dotted with little seedlings. These will be happy growing together in the bar for a further month in their sunny location.
When the seedlings have produced 4-8 leaves you may then gently separate them, being careful to not damage the delicate roots, and plant them in individual pots or a sunny weed-free spot in the garden. Plants grown in the ground with plenty of space and sunlight will produce more abundant fragrant foliage but it is possible to grow the seedlings in large containers on the balcony or patio.

For all of us sustainable means many things but we feel an important factor is the life of a product. As our Grandparents taught us if we take care of things then they should last! All our products are selected with that in mind; they are built to last. They may cost a little more but once bought then they should last for many years, if not a lifetime! A benefit to your pocket, but also the planet.
If you find anything you disagree with or want to know more about then, please, just ask, this is an ongoing work in progress! Call us on 01993 867075 or email [email protected] We care!
Growbars, produced in the UK, are a fantastic idea for both adults and kids alike. Easy to give they encourage planting inside and out and, with nature, and garden wildlife, under so much pressure these days, we need all the encouragement we can get to get planting!
Growbars are easy to grow, exciting seed collections, nestled in fertile coir bars, carefully created and packaged by the Growbar team in South London.
Growbar is 100% eco-friendly. Their card packaging can be widely recycled, the film wrap is made from biodegradable sugar cane, and the coir thats made with coconut fibres and used as the seed bed is a sustainable alternative to peat.
