Questions & Answers

when is the best time to plant in the northeast (Maine) ?

Asked by Moe June 6, 2020

Answer

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.

Are these heirlooms? If not, will the seeds they produce be any good?

How many seeds do you place in each hole

Asked by Richie December 9, 2019

Answers

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. Hope this helps and if you need further assistance don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 508.285.5800. Our best to you this season.

Zone 7 here, and I can tell you these get monster tall, hence the word mammoth. They grew so tall that I had to tie them on the 1st floor clothes line! I planted these for a photo-op and they didn't disappoint. The birds had a festive ball with them, so I can't tell you how tasty the seeds may have been. I planted them again this year on the opposite side of the garden.
