It's almost summertime and the sunflowers know it! If you're looking for a plant that will do wonders for your garden through the warm season, this is it.
The great thing about sunflowers is they can be grown from seed - easily! Just remember, they are called SUNflowers for a reason, they love lots of sun. The more sun, the bigger the flower, and the taller they grow. Good watering is the other key component.
I poke my seeds into the ground near a drip emitter, where they can be watered on a timer. Another good spot is next to pots in the garden where seeds will thrive on residual watering.
Against a block wall is a great location for sunflowers to stand out. You can even plant them in a row next to a path or the sideway to create a living fence. Whatever you try, you're sure to have some degree of success with sunflowers. So go wild and enjoy the summer!
