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.
