Sunflower forts! Bean teepees! Nasturtium tunnels!
Every child should have the experience of creating a sunflower house. Spend lazy Summer days in your own secret hideout made of beautiful blooms. Foolproof and easy to grow this collection is rewarding for the new gardener.
The size and shape of your flower house is limited only by your space and your imagination. You can create tunnels using old bike spokes or hula hoops or sticks, bean teepees using bamboo poles, or a towering sunflower house covered in flowers and vines.
To plant a sunflower house you will want your big guys, the Russian Mammoths, to act as your walls. Once your soil is warm and it's t-shirt weather plant the seeds in a square or a semi-circle or whatever shape you like to create your house, making sure to leave a gap large enough to enter. Once they’ve grown a couple feet tall plant your climbing Morning Glory and Runner Bean and Nasturtium flower seeds near the base of their stalks and add some Teddy Bear Sunflowers near the entrance "door" to greet visitors.
