Piccolo's seeds come in fun, original packaging. This makes them not only ideal for giving as gifts, but also nice to have at home. You can choose a collection of seeds or buy your seeds separately for each species. With their wide range, there is something for everyone: herbs, all kinds of interesting mixes to brighten up your kitchen, or flowers, with some collections specifically aimed at insects or birds. Spring will be incredibly colourful! The seeds are okay to be stored for at least 3 years, so you can gift them to your loved ones (or yourself!) at any time of the year.
When you think of a sunflower, you think of Taiyo (sun in Japanese), a Japanese heirloom with a tall, powerful central stem that produces large, dazzling, yellow-orange petals surrounding a rich chocolate centre. Sunflowers have been a popular ornamental flower in Europe since the 16th century as well as a valuable source of food. The sunflower represents Inti, the sun god of the Incas: we no longer have a sun cult, but the sunflower reminds us of the sun, summer and heat. Sunflower seeds are particularly popular with most seed-eating birds; simply let the blossom to dry on the plant or dead-cut it and let the seeds mature: dozens of birds will come to eat in your garden!
