When to sow a sunflower?
Sowing sunflowers is something you have to do with care, as is true with any plant. The most important is often the period when you start sowing. The sunflower, or Helianthus annuus, can be pre-sown from March. When you sow, you will have faster results. However, if you want to sow them outside immediately, it is best to sow them in May. This is also possible in April, but realize that a sunflower needs a lot of sun.
Where is the best place to sow sunflowers?
A sunflower can be sown in a pot or in the soil. It is true that this flower needs sufficient soil when in full bloom, so choose a pot that is spacious enough. A hole of about 1 to 2 centimeters deep is sufficient for the seed. Water it immediately after sowing. In addition, keep an eye on when the soil is dry, because almost every plant needs a lot of water to germinate.
How to sow sunflowers
As we said, you can sow sunflowers in pots or in open ground. A dimple of 1 to 2 centimeters deep is enough. But that’s not the only thing you need to keep in mind. It is also important to plant them far enough apart so that the seedlings have enough room to develop. Leave about 20 cm between them. Have you chosen a giant species? Then you have to add sticks to them in the long run to provide them with support.
