I recently planted Sunflowers and they started out great. They now look terrible. The leaves on top are a light brown color and the back of the leaves have black spots. What can I do to save my poor Sunflowers?
Thank You

Although we think about sunflowers as growing in the summer months, in Buckeye, they grow best when they are planted in March so they have a chance to mature by June. You can plant again in September and they will flower by Christmas time. I'm afraid your sunflower plants are suffering in the extreme heat. I don't know if they will continue to grow or if they will just die down. Wish I had more encouraging news for you!
