The Q&A Archives: Elf Sunflowers On Balcony

Question: I'm interesting in growing your Elf variety of sunflowers on my balcony. The balcony gets northeastern exposure with strong sunlight from early morning to about 2:00. I'd be growing them in window boxes. My concern is if this is enough sunlight for the Elf sunflower. I will have to start them on the balcony as well.

Answer: To be honest it is hard to say if it will be enough sunlight or not, but it's always worth experimenting. These plants really prefer full sun but should do fine with about 6 hours of good strong direct sun. Good luck with your sunflowers!
