Sunflower Planting and Care Guide

Quick Facts About Sunflower

Summer would not be complete without Sunflowers gracing the scene with cheeful faces. They can be grown in the vegetable garden to add spots of color, or an entire meadow can be filled with their bright, colorful blooms. Birds and bees love these large annuals, and they come in colors of yellow, orage, red, maroon, and even brown. Sunflowers follow the movement of the sun, so you can literally watch the large flower move throughout the day, depending on the position of the sun, and in the evening, they will face toward the east again, ready for the next morning.

Planting Time

Because Sunflower roots do not like to be disturbed, it is recommended to plant Sunflower seed directly outdoors once frost danger has passed and the soil can easily be worked.

Planting Location

Sunflower plants love full sun and moist, fertile soil. The plants may need some protection from the wind while they are establishing.

How to Plant Sunflowers

  • Weed the area and work the soil to a depth of 6 - 8 inches
  • Add compost and work it into the soil
  • Smooth the soil and plant a seed every 6 inches apart
  • Cover the seed with 1/2 - 1 inch of soil
  • If birds scratch up the seeds, a covering may need to be made to allow the seeds to germinate
  • Keep the area continually moist for germination
  • Once the seedlings have emerged and are several inches in height, thin to the strongest seedling, spacing the plants the distance that is recommended for the type of Sunflower being grown

Care And Maintenance

  • Water Sunflowers regularly to establish the young plants
  • Once established, the plants are fairly drought tolerant - so water only during dry periods
  • Provide shelter from strong winds - a fence row or building work well
  • Plants that become top-heavy with blooms may need staking to support them
  • Sunflowers can be used for cutting, and they will last up to a week in a vase - cut the blooms in the morning
  • The seed heads can be dried and the seed harvested for eating, planting the next year, or for feeding birds during the winter

How Much Seed Do I Need?

1. Measure

For Squares or Rectangles: measure the length and width of the space where you want to plant. 

For Circles: find the radius - measure the widest part of your planting space and divide by 2.

2. Calculate Square Footage

Square Foot Calculations

For Squares or Rectangles:  length (in feet)  x  width (in feet) = square feet

For example, a garden that measures 50 feet x 30 feet = 1500 sq. ft.

For Circles:   radius (in feet) x  radius  x 3.14 = square feet

For example, a circular garden that is 20 feet across has a radius of 10 feet. 10 x 10 x 3.14 = 314 sq. ft.

(The mathematical formula for the area of a circle is Π · r2 - the Π symbol is pronounced Pi and represents approximately 3.142, and r2 stands for radius squared.)

3. Find How Much Seed You Need

The amount of seed you should plant depends on the flower display you want. We typically recommend planting on the higher side for a lush meadow. Plant on the lower side for a more scattered look. 

For Individual Species: The recommended rates vary greatly from species to species. Check the product page, or contact us with questions.

For Wildflower Mixes: Reference the table below.

This Much Seed Covers... This Much Square Footage
1/4 lb 250 - 500 sq. ft.
1/2 lb 500 - 1,000 sq. ft.
1 lb 1,000 - 2,000 sq. ft.
5 lbs 5,000 - 10,000 sq. ft.
10 lbs 10,000 - 25,000 sq. ft.
  • 1 Acre = 43,000 sq.ft.
  • 1/2 Acre = 21,500 sq. ft.
  • 1/4 Acre = 10,750 sq.ft.
  • 1/10 Acre = 4,300 sq. ft.

Tips For Larger Plantings: If you have a large site, from 1/2 acre to several acres, your planting rate may be affected by land conditions. If you have heavy weeds on the site now, some erosion, generally poor soil, or other land problems, additional seed is usually the most economical solution, since installation of a large planting usually costs more than the seed itself. If your site does have these problems and you want full coverage, use 1 pound per 1000 sq. ft.
