The Q&A Archives: How Long?

Question: Can you start sunflower seeds in a large pot? Under my window is all cement. i thought i might use a pot, how deep does it have to be?

Answer: There are many varieties of sunflowers, and the types intended for flower display rather than the very tall huge headed ones would do fine in a very large pot (roughly two gallons or larger) or several together in a half barrel planter. These are annuals that grow bloom and die in one season, so the seed would be planted next spring.
