These jumbo sized sunflowers require a little different soil preparation than the other sunflowers we sell.
First step it to take a pitch fork and loosen your soil 12" deep. Next enrich you top soil and till 6" deep until your soil is the consistency of brown sugar. When soil is consistently 70 degrees (for zone 6-7 usually June 1st) plant seed 1/2" deep and a minimum of 12" apart and then top with a light dusting of compost. These are low maintenance and require nothing else other than weekly watering. Don't pinch like branching sunflowers as they are single stem. Unlike other sunflowers we sell you will get the best results if you use a slow release fertilizer, or top with compost monthly, as they use a lot of nutrients as they grow. We don't recommend you start sunflowers early in pots as they send a large tap root when germinating and in pots less than 6" deep will quickly become rootbound and not develop correctly.

The color of these sunflowers, and the overall vigor of the plant, is very dependent on sufficient soil nutrient levels. To achieve the tallest sunflower possible we suggest you use a nutrient soil test to check your NPK and make sure your PH level is at least 7. The large flower heads will make thousands of heirloom seeds.
