    Burpee has affiliations with Monsanto. Their seeds may be genetically
    modified. Better to buy heirloom/organic seeds. I suggest “Seed savers
    exchange” — easy to find & order online.

    If I plant them against my backyard fence to hide the old ugly fence will
    that be a good permanent screen?

    Just asking, but how tall do mammoth sunflowers grow. I’m growing some
    right now. the tallest is at 10 ft tall and blooming. But I have a few
    that are at about 3 or 4 ft tall and have already bloomed as well. Did I
    do something wrong or is this just a natural thing?

    the salt, do you have any advice to get the salty kind of Sunflower seeds?

    Well you spuupose to water them when the soil feels dry by simple touching
    the soil. Also it takes a while for some seeds to grow and sometimes not
    long at all. when there seed it best to plant indoors until it grows a bit
    so the bugs wont eat it straight away

    HELP my plant doesn’t grow. i think i might just drowned it with water but
    it still wont grow. 🙁

    Sunflowers do NOT need to be tied to a stick. Once you starttying it to a
    stick the seedling will rely on it for support, which makes it weak. By not
    tying it the seedling will create a much thicker and sturdier stem, I
    learned this from other annuals. My sunflowers reach over 3m and have
    multiple flowers (10+a plant), only 2 have fallen over. You’ll have to push
    quite hard if you want to push them over.

    Sure. I would just boil some water and mx as much salt as you can into it,
    then let the water cool, soak the seeds in the salt water for 15-20 minutes
    minutes, and immediately roast them after soaking. that should evaporate
    the water and leave a very fine salty powder on the seeds like you get in
    the store! You’ll have to roast them a bit longer since they’re wet to

    if u r planting them for fun like I do, then just take like 3 seeds and
    wrap it in a soft paper towel, put on a foam tray, and spray the paper +
    tray till the water is just pooling, then leave it for a few days and spray
    once in a while so the pool doesnt run dry. should work. then after it
    sprouts, put one in a pot and grow it til u can put it outside without fear
    of it breaking in the wind
