Because of their compact size, they are nice to add as a border planting in your gardens and beds. Sunflowers are very easy to grow and make a good choice for novice gardeners and kids. Blooms in the summer and into the fall. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 20 seeds.
Planting Instructions: Sunflowers are very easy to grow and because of their size, quite spectacular for a child’s garden.
Sow directly outdoors, ¾ inches deep. Thin the plants at first to 8 inches and then to two feet to avoid crowding. (We have had good luck transplanting)
Water regularly and weed between the plants to eliminate competition.
Harvest the seeds by cutting the flowering heads when the backs have turned yellow. Complete the drying by hanging them upside down in a warm, dry place.
