Sunflower question
[Return to Topics]

When the stalk (shoot) dies should I pull it up? If I don't will the sunflower re-new itself again? Thanks

They're annuals, so the old plant won't come back but you will probably get some volunteers from dropped seeds...at least we always do.

I let the stalks dry under cover in a shed and use them the next year for bean poles. They're not as durable as wood, but they do last a season and they're free.

They won't rejuvinate. My daddy just finished pulling all his up. He gave me all the heads except a few, so he will have them for next years planting. I got them all sitting out drying now.

I believe they're dead and done once they flower,never had any come up other than from seed,planted or spilled.

Not to "my" knowledge.. they are an annual plant..
however their seed load is so prolific there's
bound to be seed coming up.. I usually have them
scattered all over my garden coming up in early
spring.. I don't mind tho
