What do sunflowers say about your personality?
Sunflowers are a symbol of happiness and optimism. The sunflower lover has an infectiously radiant and warm disposition. You're a glass-half-full type of person, always turning your attention to the bright side of things.
We want to share this optimism with you with a special offer of 50% off Sunflower Seeds. But there is more to the story!
Sunflowers are a valuable food source for birds, bee and insects. Their bright yellow petals attract many species of insects, including the endangered Irish solitary bee species. The centre of the sunflower houses thousands upon thousands of tiny tubular flowers containing nectar and pollen, an excellent food source for the bees.
As the summer draws to an end, the sunflower eventually bows its head and begins to die, but even then, there is reason for optimism.
The seeds become an important and plentiful food source for visiting wild birds and can even be harvested and eaten by humans too!
Connecting to Nature and feeling closer to the wider natural world is important for us all. Watching the tiny seeds grow into an enormous plant and become a food source, demonstrating the food lifecycle is a wonderful experience.
