Loosen enriched garden soil down to a 6" depth. When soil is consistently 70 degrees (for zone 6-7 usually June 1st) plant seed 1/2" deep and a minimum of 12" apart. These are low maintenance and require nothing else other than weekly watering. Even though these are technically a branching sunflower we recommend that you do not pinch them.
These seeds are the smallest sunflower seeds we sell so don't be surprised on how tiny they are.
The color of these sunflowers, and the overall vigor of the plant, is very dependent on sufficient soil nutrient levels. To achieve the brightest color we suggest you use a nutrient soil test to check your NPK and make sure your PH level is at least 7. A PH level under 6 will affect the color of the bloom.
