The sunflowers that are grown in the flowerpot remain much smaller than the sunflowers that you plant in the garden because the roots of the plant cannot spread so well in the pot. Only one sunflower per pot is desirable so that the plants do not deprive each other of space and nutrients. However, you should always sow several seeds per pot, as not all seeds will sprout. If a few seeds have sprouted, you can cut weaker plants. The ideal pots for growing sunflowers are pots with a diameter of 30 centimeters. Place the pots in as much possible sunny place. South balconies or terraces are ideal. Water and fertilize sunflowers frequently to allow them to develop a lot of flowers.
