Sunflower Picking Tips, and Information

Sunflowers are a mid-to late summer crop. They need warm soil and full sun.  In most areas, expect sungflowers to be available starting in June, and sometimes continuing into August.  It really depends on when the farmer plants them, the variety and local weather conditions. Farms that offer U-pick or pick-your-own sunflowers are becoming more common.

  • Once picked, quickly get the stems into water
  • Get them out of the hot sun after picking to increase shelf life.  Cool shade is best.
  • Re-cut stems while underwater - once you get home. Making a fresh cut, while the cut end is submerged helps the stem to take up water and avoid a vapor lock.
