Thank you for your question. Best time to plant is after all danger of frost has passed and soil temp is in the 70's. For Maine and extreme northern climates that can be up to July. You can plant when soil temp is lower, down in 40's, however the days to germ will take longer. Our best to you this season.
Thank you for your question and yes Heirlooms, not a hybrid. They will be good to eat or save seed for next season. Our best to you!
Thank you for your question. Best practice is after all danger of frost place 2-3 seeds per hole, hole spacing should be 18-24 inches apart, cover with 1 inch soil and when plants are 4 inches tall thin by leaving the best plant from each hole. Ensure to pack the soil lightly back around the base of the seedling remaining. If you looking to have several plants in a row what I personally do is use my hoe and with the corner pull it across the soil about 1 inch down to create a trough or line to place seeds in. Place 1 seed every 3 - 6 inches in trough and cover with 1 inch soil. I do this for however many rows of sunflowers I'm going to plant. Rows should be spaced 18-24 inches apart. Once plants are 4 inches tall, thin plants to a spacing of 18-24 inches between each.
