What can you not plant around sunflowers?
Beans and potatoes are especially susceptible to this chemical and cannot be planted near sunflowers. Do not till the sunflower remains back into a vegetable garden either, as the chemicals will remain in the soil for some time.
What flowers go well with sunflowers?
Flowers that go well with sunflowers in arrangements include roses, snapdragons, chrysanthemums, chamomile and irises. Bright colors such as reds and oranges tend to pair well with the yellow. On the other hand if you wish to go for a contrasting colour, blue or purple irises make a beautiful pairing.
How far apart should I plant sunflowers?
Small sunflowers may require only 6 inches between each plant, while large varieties might need up to 3 feet. Closer spacings are possible for garden aesthetics, but crowded plants will produce smaller flowers. Indoor sunflower seedlings should be reduced to one seedling per cup.
Do hydrangeas go with sunflowers?
The hydrangeas and the sunflowers form a triangle, with the lower hydrangea positioned at the lowest vertices or point of the triangle. The shaped tea leaves to the left balance the curved tea leaf and the 3 curved eucalyptus stems on the right.
What is the best month for sunflowers?
It's best to sow sunflower seeds directly into the garden (or outdoor containers) after the danger of spring frost has passed anytime after soils have warmed to at least 50°F (10°C). In most regions, this will fall between April and mid-July. In the south, this will probably occur in mid-March or early April.
