Sowing Guide for Premium Giant Sunflower Seeds

  • Sunflowers are very easy to sow and grow. If sowing indoors, seedlings may need to be taken outdoors before getting too large.
  • Sowing seeds directly outdoors after the chance of frost has passed, sowing seeds at a depth of 1/4″. Using fresh compost, or well worked soil will help increase germination rates.
  • The germination period takes between 14 to 21 days, keeping the soil moist but well drained.
  • Once seedlings reach a height of 2 or 3″ transplant to their growing location. An area which receives full sun works best.
  • Once the sunflower has bloomed, you can harvest the seeds and the flower head. To be used in cooking, baking or plant the new seeds for more sunflowers.
