Growing sunflowers in pots is feasible in the event you choose a smaller variety, like “Short Stuff” or “Teddy Bear.” Be certain the pot is deep enough to accommodate their faucet root. If youâ€™re rising one of the giant varieties that top 10 toes in peak, plant them in a sheltered location or alongside a fence so theyâ€™re protected from the wind. Otherwise, a gust of wind may tip them over. Plant seeds after the danger of spring frost has passed and the soil temperature is not less than 60 levels. This will probably be between March and may, depending on where you live. You may get starter plants at a nursery or house enchancment retailer, but rising sunflower plants is best if you happen to develop them from seed sown instantly into the ground. More varieties of sunflowers can be found to you in the event you develop from seed. Growing sunflowers from seed is tremendous straightforward, too.
