How do I care for sunflower plants



Do you mean giant sunflowers or ordinary bedding ones? If you want a huge sunflower you need to prepare a really good planting hole with lots of compost mixed in, and even feed the plant as it is growing, and keep it watered. For ordinary sunflowers, just plant them out after hardening them off and they should grow without problems. Like all annuals and bedding plants, don't be in too much of a hurry to put them out if we are still getting very cold nights as it will just check their growth.
Slugs and snails are also very partial to sunflower seedlings.
