    When did you sow your sunflowers? I'm in eastern KY and was afraid to sow until after the last frost (early May) and mine are no where near big enough to bloom yet.

    Perfect timing. I planted autumn beauty, cutting gold, and Lemon queen this year. I cut my first blooms today. Love them!

    I think sunflowers are so loved because they are we all started off drawing flowers. I will be growing sunnies this summer in Australia. Great video

    I used your winter sowing method for growing sunflowers 🌻. The first one bloomed this week. A 🍋Lemon Queen. The pale yellow with the really dark centers—so attractive. I’m not planning to cut them unless that would encourage side shoots and more blooms. Thanks! Bye for now!

    I love sunflowers but I have never grown them! Yours are beautiful! I think I like the dark centered ones best too but both are lovely. Do they rebloom after you cut the bloom, kind of like zinnias… cut and come again? Edited to ask…… Do you have a local farmer's market? I hear that sunflowers sell well at market….

    I grew velvet queen last year and they are the perfect fall sunflower (they’re a rusty red) but I noticed that as soon as I cut them the stalk would soften and they would just wilt so quickly. I think some sunflowers are much better in the garden than in a vase. I grew some pollenless ones too and they were of course really awesome.
