Yay, Success with sunflowers! Some things I learned: They germinate really quickly. Start seeds inside the middle of may. The ground has to be a certain temp for them to thrive. When you plant the outside, cover with soda bottles to protect from bugs, bunnies and to create a greenhouse. They need to be fenced in or you will be feeding the bunnies their morning breakfast everyday! I put down ladybugs to keep the bugs away. They don't need much water once they start growing. Don't plant mamouth unless u r using these for privacy, you only get one flower.
