If you harvested white sunflower seeds, you’re doing something wrong during the growing, harvesting, or drying process. A bad harvest can be devastating; you’ve spent so much time growing the plant and end up with a useless product.
1. The Sunflower Heads Are Immature - You’re in for white seeds if you harvest your sunflower heads before they’ve matured.2. You Didn’t Protect The Plant - Mature sunflower seeds are food of preference for birds and squirrels. 3. Drying Inside Dark And Moist Places - Harvesting immature sunflowers and then storing them to dry in a bunch is a big mistake.
Planting White Sunflower Seeds - Store your seeds in an airtight container if you plan to replant some the following season. The sunflowers are annuals, so you need to sow the seeds each spring after the last frost has passed and the temperatures are above 50℉.
Sunflowers are one of the most striking plants you can grow. They’re low maintenance and yield a great harvest from a single plant. But as with any plant, it’s easy to make mistakes and end up with white sunflower seeds that are tasteless.
