The Q&A Archives: Sunflower

Question: How do you dry cut sunflowers in your home, stem and all?

Answer: To harvest them for sunflower seeds, usually they are nearly dry when you cut them off the plant. Then set the heads on racks or in one layer on the floor to dry in a well ventilated place. In my experience sunflowers do not make very good dried flowers.
