What are the pros? Draws in Birds
What are the cons? Birds leave a mess when done
I planted these in small pots and then transplanted them which I have been told sunflowers do not like. I had no problem however and all of the transplanted seedlings grew in to large healthy plants. I grew 7 but only bothered harvesting 2 for seeds to eat. I left the rest in the garden and was overjoyed when scrub jays started frequenting them. This lasted for a couple of weeks before a flock of wild Amazon Parrots settled on them and tore what was left apart while I was having my morning cup of coffee ten feet away. I will grow them again just for the birds next time.
