    3. Preparation: Loosen the soil to a depth of 6-8 inches and mix in compost or aged manure to enrich the soil.
    4. Sowing Depth: Plant seeds 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart.
    5. Spacing: Thin seedlings to a final spacing of 18-24 inches apart once they have grown a few inches tall.
    6. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, especially during the germination period.
    7. Deadheading: Remove spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming.
    8. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing season to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  • Harvesting:

    • Seeds mature approximately 75-85 days after sowing.
    • Harvest seeds when the back of the flower head turns brown and the seeds are plump and firm.
    • Cut the flower heads and hang them upside down in a warm, dry location to dry.
    • Once fully dry, remove the seeds from the flower heads and store them in a cool, dry place in an airtight container.
  • Additional Tips:

    • Sunflowers are attractive to pollinators and beneficial insects, making them a valuable addition to pollinator gardens.
    • Consider planting in groups or rows for a stunning visual display.
