Sow Helianthus seeds directly outdoors after the danger of spring frost has passed after the soil has warmed to at least 50°F (10°C).

Start seed into prepared seedbed that is weed free and where the soil has been loosened. Space the Sunflower seeds 6 inches apart, cover the seeds 1/2 inch deep, and thin the Sunflower seedlings to 12 - 18 inches apart.

The narrow end of the seed is where roots will emerge, so putting this end down saves the plant from having to right itself in the ground.

Sunflowers dislike having their roots disturbed, which is why direct-sowing is recommended instead of transplanting.

However, you can transplant sunflower seedlings carefully into the garden without disturbing the roots and give plants plenty of room to develop.



  • Set seeds in groups of 2 or 3 indoors, in a flat tray, 2 - 3 weeks before the last frost.
  • Mix together equal amounts of course sand and peat moss, fill the flats with the mixture and pour water over the mixture until it is thoroughly moistened.  
  • Sow sunflower seeds 1/2"deep, spaced 4 to 6 inches apart.
  • Seeds are slow to germinate at lower temperatures.
  • For optimal germination the soil temperature should be maintained at 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray the soil with room-temperature water if it begins to dry.
  • They do not require a specific soil type, but they need direct sun.
  • Germination time is 2-3 weeks at 70-75°F.
  • After the Sunflower Autumn Beauty seedlings develop two to four leaves, they should be transplanted.
  • Keep soil evenly moist but not wet.
  • Once established sunflowers can tolerate drought.
  • Sow in succession every 1-2 weeks and/or plant several varieties with various days of maturation for a continuous harvest.
