Easy to grow and a real favourite with children. Flowers like very large daisies with brightly coloured petals. Pollen-free varieties are ideal for hayfever sufferers and for cutting. Use petals and seeds in salads and cakes.
Recommended by Which? - 'A true giant. With a name like 'Giraffe' we expected these to be tall, but weren't prepared for just how tall! Initially they were level with the other giants, but then put on a spurt and climbed another metre to tower over their competitors. Each of the huge plants carried a single dinner-plate-sized flower that lasted for a few weeks but seemed a bit inconspicuous when they were so far away. Try them next year, and you'll impress the neighbourhood.'
