Q: So glad you asked!
A: July brings a great deal of planning and planting. As you know, the fallseason is our busiest time of the year. Our Sunflowers take center stageso we are planting like crazy to insure an abundant fall harvest.
Q: You mentioned planning and planting quite a bit.Why is that so important? A: The days of throwing a bunch of seed in the ground and selling them the daybefore you harvest them are over. We are at a point in our industry where themargin for error is very slim. We rely on quite a bit of data to insure we plant thecorrect varieties for the right weeks. We tabulate reports from years past, reachout to all our clients, and huddle up as a team to come up with the mostcomprehensive weekly planting plan for fall.
Q: How is that going?
A: So far so good. (Please be nice to us this summer, Ms. Mother Nature!) Hereare some fun pictures of our Suns in full bloom with each variety listed. Enjoy!
We are constantly testing seed to improve our current SunflowerVarieties. These are all the Sunbeam varieties. Believe it or notthese are all different varieties of our green center sunflowers(here’s a hint, you can tell by the petal structure.)
Beautiful red bi-color Sunflowers…perfecto for fall.
