how do i cut down my sunflowers and how do i collect the seeds ?



When the seeds begin to ripen, and the petals have all fallen, cut the heads and hang them in a dry place to ripen fully. The birds will love them, or you could harvest some of them to grow next year. You can cut the stems back at the same time.

Or you can leave them and let the birds help themselves.
