Do taller sunflowers have bigger seeds?



Not necessarily. If sowing mixed colour packs of seeds always use a range of the seed sizes. Also, when pricking out don't just pick the largest seedlings as the smaller ones are often the rarer colours.

i agree with Vounteer. There are a range of seed sizes fro the same variety. I used to always select the largets seed but now I dont bother as its down to the genes in the plant :o)
