FAQ about the sunflowers:
When do they bloom? Normally sunflowers will bloom anytime between mid-July and mid-August. We can never be certain - so please don't ask us to pin down a date. It all depends on Mother Nature - sun, rain, warm temps/cold temps - all out of our hands.
How long does the bloom last for? The blooms look amazing for 2 weeks and then start to fade - although they still look good. As the plant matures and starts making the seeds, the yellow flower starts to droop and die off. This is the natural progression for a sunflower.
