Where to Sow
Direct into weed free flowering site about 2cm deep. Alternatively, you can sow indoors in early spring. Sow seeds 12mm (1/2 inch deep) in individual pots 7.5cm (3in) at 68-72°F (20-22°C) Germination normally takes between 7-10 days. Once the plant is established, gradually harden off and plant out in early June, when all chances of frost has ceased.

If sown direct, thin out seedlings to about 30cm apart. Sunflowers do not like transplanting and short lived if subjected to this process. Prefers a well drained soil in full sun.

Plants may need staking in exposed areas. When flowers have faded, hang flower heads by strings to feed the birds.
