Where To Buy Sunflower Seeds To Plant

LINK --->

You can plant sunflowers according to the seasons, the pollen type or size. Many varieties require different amounts of space to grow, so you can also determine which flowers to grow based on the size of your garden or plot of land. You should also consider the types offered.

A North American native that was first domesticated more than 2000 years ago, the sunflower has been the subject of fascination for growers and observers alike. To the Native Americans it was a source not only of nourishment, but of medicine and building material. The Aztecs offered the golden blossoms to their god of war, and then to the Spanish conquistadors as a symbol of alliance. The Spanish took the flower to Europe, and from there it was taken to Russia, where it was cultivated for food and oil. It was not until the 19th century that interest in the sunflower returned to mainstream North American society. Since then, it has been a commercial crop, a garden favorite, and beloved of artists like Oscar Wilde, Paul Gauguin, and Vincent Van Gogh. Sunflowers are still grown today in Claude Monet's garden at Giverny.

To grow your own sunflowers, plant seeds in late spring or early summer. Sunflowers prefer loose, well-drained soil, and need six to eight hours of full sunlight each day. Succession planting will ensure that new plants are always blooming. Water established sunflower plants heavily once a week. Taller plants may require supports in order to stay upright.

Onions can help repel pests that might feed on sunflowers, while sunflowers distract aphids from tomato plants (and the tomatoes attract pollinators to the sunflower). Heavy-stemmed varieties like Eden Brothers' Black Russian Sunflower Seeds can offer support to vining plants. Plant Eden Brothers' Autumn Beauty Sunflower Seeds or Skyscraper Sunflower Seeds along fence lines for a splash of color or a little privacy, or add Maximillian Sunflower Seeds and Ox Eye Sunflower Seeds to prairie and wildflower gardens. Whatever variety you choose, these long treasured beauties are sure to be a hit!

Sunflowers can be cut for arrangements as soon as blossoms have fully opened. To harvest seeds, allow the sunflower to remain on the stalk until the petals have dropped off and the seed head has dried completely. Seeds can then be easily removed by hand, or complete seed heads can be tied to fences and posts or left in place as winter forage for birds and squirrels.

\r\nHow To Harvest Sunflower Seeds For Planting, Roasting & Feeding Birds\r\n \r\nBy Amanda Shepard \r\nSunflowers are a staple of the summer garden. They are tall and regal, looking down at the rest of the flowers and offering a source of food and nectar to any pollinator who stops by. Also a delight for the gardener, their grandiose blooms make a cheerful statement in almost any sunny spot. At the end of the season, it's easy to harvest sunflower seeds to dry for re-planting, baking up for a tasty snack, and re-purposing into suet cakes to feed the birds in the winter months.\r\n\r\nSunflowers are ready to harvest when their foliage turns yellow, the petals die down and the seeds look plump.\r\nHarvest Sunflower Seeds: Cutting\r\nThis is undoubtedly the easiest and quickest part of the process. Once your sunflowers have died back completely and the backs of the blooms are brown, it\u2019s time to harvest. You\u2019ll also notice the seeds are plump and somewhat loose. Cut the stalk with sharp scissors or pruners, about one foot down from the flower head, and place in a container that can catch any loose seeds.\r\n\r\nCut the sunflower stalk about a foot below the bloom.\r\nHarvest Sunflower Seeds: Hanging To Dry\r\n\r\nIf you're worried about the birds eating all of your sunflower seeds before you get the chance to harvest, tie a paper bag over the blooms right in the garden. You can also cut the stalks before they are ready and hang them indoors to dry.\r\n\r\nIf the sunflowers aren't ready yet, tie the stalks with twine.\r\nI cut my s
