when do i cut down my sunflowers and collect the seeds



After a few weeks from when the flowers fade, gently rub your fingers across the disc of florets. If these fall away to reveal the seeds, they are ready.

You will only need a few of the seeds for next year so why no hang the rest of the heads up for the birds?
