Transplant after the last frost, 18-24" apart. Water seedlings regularly until established.

100% Germination

All the Strawberry Blonde Sunflower seeds we sowed have germinated, and the seedlings are moving along well :D I can't comment on garden performance or flower color yet since ours are only 10 days old, but hopefully I'll remember to come back to update this review later. This was our first purchase from Pinetree, and we were very satisfied with the consistent performance among the different seeds we ordered, and my mother especially was very approving about the appearance of the seed packets. She said they aren't boring, for a change :P
