I’ve never really had to grow sunflowers in my garden, they always spring up here and there because I have fed sunflower seeds to my chickens and wild birds. They are not always where you want them, but it beats having to plant them. I bought packets for a few different kinds of sunflowers this spring, those are coming along well, but they’re not even close to blooming.
I’m always happy to have them, I let them set seed and then throw them to the chickens. There’s nothing better than free flowers and free bird food without any work on my part!
