Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are actually the seed of the sunflower plant. They contain many nutrients that promote good health, including vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, iron, folate, fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids.

These nutrients help protect eyesight by reducing the risk of macular degeneration.
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamins A, B6, C, D, E, K, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. They are also high in fiber and protein.

Choose sunflowers with large heads.
Sunflowers are easy to grow and require little maintenance. You can plant them directly into the ground or sow them indoors. Plant them in full sun or partial shade. If you live in a cold climate, plant them in late fall so they will bloom in spring.

Plant them in full sun or partial shade.
Once the plants start blooming, cut off the heads with scissors. Remove the seedpods by hand or use a small knife to remove the seeds. Store the seeds in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to eat.

Water regularly.
If you live in a dry climate, water your sunflowers every day during the growing season. This will help them produce more flowers and pods. You should water your sunflowers when the soil feels dry to the touch.

Fertilize once per month.
Once a month, apply a fertilizer with nitrogen (N) as its main ingredient. Nitrogen helps plants develop strong roots and leaves. Apply the fertilizer at least two weeks before planting seeds.
