Sowing :

Direct seed (recommended) - After last frost, sow 1/2" deep.

Transplant - Sow into 72 to 50-cell flats 2-3 weeks prior to planting out. Plants dislike root disturbance, but sowing indoors and then transplanting the first crop outdoors can be a successful way to get first-early sunflowers. Do not pinch plants.


Plant out after last danger of frost. Plant spacing determines sunflower head size: 6″ apart make nice bouquet size heads of 4″, for larger flower heads plant 12″ apart in the garden.



Succession-sow every 1-2 weeks and/or plant multiple varieties with varied days to maturity for continuous harvest.

Harvest :

Flowers can be harvested tight, when color first shows, or when almost completely open, depending on your market and preferred use.


 Dried - Flowers are completely open. Hang or use silica gel.
