Sue Says
Sunflowers can be planted out in the garden once they have a well developed root system. From a spring sowing they are normally ready to be planted out by late May/June. At this time of year they will be putting on lots of growth and it is best to get them out of their pots and into the soil as soon as possible. Make sure that you harden them off first though, by gradually acclimatising them to outdoor conditions over the next week. Remember to provide a stout cane beside them to support their stems when you plant them.
