About This Article
Before you grow sunflowers, find a plot that gets full sun, is sheltered from the wind, and has good drainage. Plant your seeds at the beginning of summer, when the soil is warm. When you’re ready to plant, put seeds in 1-inch-deep holes that are 6-18 inches apart, depending on the type of sunflower you’re growing. Cover them with soil and a thin layer of fertilizer before watering them thoroughly. Then water your plants once or twice a week and watch them grow!
