sunflowers and bees

Honey Bees

I planted my sunflower seeds too late this year and they didn’t sprout. So couple weeks ago I bought some sunflower plants to make a nice row. They are short, about 3 feet tall, but blooming nicely and lots of buds coming. The bees love them. They get sooo coated with pollen its a wonder they can fly.

  • hi,
    i’d appreciate any thoughts on drying sunflower seeds. nice garden.


  • I never get close to drying sunflower seeds for my use. The squirrels or the birds have always found them before they are ripe. This row attracted a nice flock of goldfinches who helped themselves until the squirrels finished up. I figure I’m lucky if I get a nice photo of sunflowers in full bloom. Sorry I can’t help.

  • Thanks for the photos! I’m a beekeeper for a hobby….convinced me to plant sunflowers for my bees.
