I got some great sunflowers this year from black oil seeds that strayed from the birdfeeder, but the single flowers are now about finished blooming. The petals are beginning to fall and I'm sure seeds will start forming soon. I'm not too familiar with growing sunflowers, so my question is, is it possible to get another flower from the plant? If I remove the flower now will another one form, or should I just let the plant go to seed for the birds?

You CAN get new sunflowers from this plant [Smile] And you can feed the birds too! But be careful, cuz sunflower seeds make birds overweight, and lazy [Razz]

Anywho, just wait till the flower falls off before you collect the seeds. I donno what to do about planting them though. You could probably just stick them in the ground right then, or maybe you have to wait for them to dry... I donno. Hopefully someone else knows [Smile]

Good luck with that!
