Planting sunflowers

At one of the other stands at the Wilhelm-Busch-Museum, younger visitors were given the opportunity to plant sunflowers. The children could choose a flower pot and paint it to their hearts content using Pelikan colours. The more colourful the pots got, the more the children enjoyed painting their pots.


Flower pots are coloured using Pelikan colours. When things got difficult, older helping hands assisted.

After painting the flower pots they were filled with earth. 2-3 Shovel loads of soil were enough for most of the pots. After this, the Sunflower seeds were planted in the soil.


A few shovels of plant soil, a Sunflower seed and some water.

Planting the seed is easily done by pushing a finger approx. 2 cm in to the soil creating a small hole. Place the seed in the hole and then cover up with soil.

Finally pour a good bit of water onto the soil. It is best to keep the Sunflower in bright surroundings making sure the soil is kept from drying up.
