Cultivation and Care

Planting Instructions for Sunflower Seeds

For those looking to order sunflower seeds online and grow them, Bombay Seeds recommends the following steps:

  • How to Sow sunflower seeds: Create a 1-inch deep hole in a growing medium like a grow bag. Place the sunflower seed inside and cover with soil, ensuring firm contact between the seed and the soil.
  • Watering: Maintain moisture without oversaturation. Sunflowers require regular watering during the critical growth phase, about 20 days before and after flowering.

Growing Sunflowers

To achieve the best sunflower seeds to plant, follow these tips:

  • Spacing: Ensure there is 1 to 2 feet between plants to avoid overcrowding.
  • Mulching: Apply a 2- to 3-inch layer of organic material to conserve moisture and prevent weed growth.
  • Fertilization: Use a nitrogen-rich 10-15-10 fertilizer to support robust growth and flowering.

Harvesting Sunflowers

  • Indicator of Maturity: The seeds are ready when the back of the flower head turns from green to yellow and the petals begin to drop.
  • Protection: To protect from birds, cover each head with cheesecloth or a paper sack.
  • Collection: Cut the stalk about 4 inches below the flower head and manually remove the seeds.
