Welcome to the site Welcome! . I plant mine after the last frost date or inside a few weeks prior to get a jump on the growing season. What zone are you?.

Welcome to the site. Welcome!
I think it would depend on what zone you are living in.
Here in zone 5, ours are planted in the spring. It doesn't take long for them to sprout.
We feed the birds sunflower seeds and believe it or not, every summer we have lots and lots
of sunflowers to enjoy. They plant themselves, Hilarious!

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.

I agree Frost and freezes will kill annual sunflowers.

Perennial sunflowers, on the other hand, can be planted anytime, including the fall.
