How to grow sunflower Italian White from seed

That’s why we always start sunflowers in deep 40 or 28 cell seed trays. We start seeds a few weeks before our last expected frost date in the greenhouse. But if you have a windowsill or small cold frame or plastic box with air ventilation you will be able to start them earlier as well.
