Drying Sunflowers for Seeds

by Cliff Sharples (chief cultivator)




Does anyone have tips on how to dry the sunflower heads to get seeds? Do I leave them on the plant? Cut the heads off and hang to dry? And, how long does to take before you can take the seeds out?!

Any help would be appreciated!



I had great success at growing huge sunflowers this year... now what?
