Bulk Seed for Cut Flower Growers and Nurserymen

Cut-Flower Growers & Nurserymen:
 In addition to its packet seeds of a wide range of FleuroSun sunflower types, Copsley Ornamentals sells directly bulk lots of a minimum 1000 seeds of selected FleuroSun hybrids, primarily of unbranched hybrids of standard height such Classic Gold, Early Gold and Monarch for the cut-flower market, plus several branched hybrids with coloured petals; these are listed under "Wholesale" on the FleuroSun website. Bulk seed is also available of FleuroSun Dwarf and/or FleuroSun Compact hybrids for nurserymen interested in growing pots or seedling packs for the wholesale and/or retail markets.
Growers interested in smaller quantities of a minimum 400 seeds/hybrid or larger quantities of minimum 10K seeds can enquire on availability of seed and seed prices directly to Copsley Ornamentals at or 0439 824267.
Bulk seed of various FleuroSun hybrids is also available for flower growers and nurserymen through Ball Australia and Royston Petrie, whilst packet seeds through Lambley Nursery and The Seed Collection.
Seeds or Seedlings for Cut-Flower Growers: Most standard hybrids grown commercially for cut-flowers are planted as seeds, either directly using a precision-type planter or using a tape system. With the latter, seeds are spaced along tape made of biodegradable cotton using vegetable glue; such as is available in Australia from Livyn Pty Ltd. Reels of tape are then attached to a simple push planter.  
Seedlings of hybrids of standard height tend to be tall and spindly, and are rarely ideal to be planted as seedlings. However, most FleuroSun Compact hybrids, including unbranched Compact Classic Gold, Compact Ice Lady & Compact Classic Lime, can be grown commercially for cut-flowers and these are suitable for planting as seedlings.
Seedlings of Compact & Dwarf hybrids for Wholesale & Retail:   All FleuroSun Compact & Dwarf hybrids can be grown as seedlings, either for direct sale as seedlings to retail outlets or, in the case of Dwarf varieties, for transplanting into pots. This is facilitated by their compact plant height and strong root systems. The unique nature of FleuroSun Compact & Dwarf hybrids and their diverse range of plants and colours add a significant new dimension to the growing and marketing of ornamental sunflowers.
 FleuroSun Dwarf hybrids for Pots: The range of FleuroSun Dwarf hybrids is now the most extensive in the world and includes branched types considered most suitable for pots and borders, namely Dwarf Summer Spray, Dwarf Gold Spray, Dwarf Sonnet, Dwarf Ice Spray, Dwarf Calypso Spray and Dwarf Lilac Spray. All can be planted as seeds or, very desirably for optimal uniform quality and for reduced time to market, from seedlings.
