Is your yard or garden looking a little worse for the wear? Finding beautiful flowers and foliage can be tough! Or perhaps, you’re looking for low maintenance flowers that continue blooming all summer long? Well, have you thought of trying a sunflower garden? If you have a sandy garden, these flowers could be just the thing that keeps you active and gardening all summer long. Read on to learn how to grow your own sunflowers! You can never go wrong with a sunflower garden.
Where to Plant
First thing is first! You have to determine which area of your yard will support sunflower growth. Unsurprising, sunflowers LOVE areas of full sun. Wherever you plant them, make sure that your flowers are getting plenty! Though they prefer sandy soils, sunflowers will grow in virtually any kind of environment, as long as the soil does not become waterlogged. As long as the PH levels of the soil are between 6.0-7.5, your sunflowers should grow just fine.
Psst….sunflower vines are known to inhibit the stems of the plants in any surrounding areas. Keep sunflowers away from pole beans and potatoes.
