The novel ornamental sunflowers offered
by SeedSense Ltd are the result of over fifty generations
of research and breeding started in 1976 by Dr. Thomas Heaton.
That long term effort has produced an array of plant types
and petal colours never before seen in sunflower, annually
encompassing more than four hectares of research plots.
Every year researchers relentlessly search the world for
new traits in both wild and cultivated forms of sunflower.
The release of each new ornamental sunflower creation by
SeedSense Ltd can take as much as five years as it is crossed,
combined, selected and tested. During that process we collaborate
with our colleagues at private and public institutions to
discover new applications in horticulture for our sunflowers.
We seek to not only invent new sunflowers, but also to create
new marketing opportunities for the entire industry.
SeedSense Ltd is proud to exclusively
offer original and pollenless sunflowers. Strict standards
are employed to maintain quality throughout seed stock and
commercial production. In an effort to protect the essential
genetic integrity of their proprietary sunflower varieties
for customers, researchers for SeedSense Ltd have allied
themselves with BioDiagnostics Inc of River Falls,
Wisconsin, USA, in the development of a DNA registration
programme to preserve and document the varietal breeding
advances in sunflower. Customers of SeedSense Ltd can rest
assured that its sunflowers are truly unique in origin and
