For Early Sowings
Sow indoors individually in 7.5cm (3") pots at 20-25°C (68-77°F). When the sunflower seedlings are well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost in 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.
