Saving Sunflower Seeds
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Bazan
Posted on: December 07, 2007

Last year I bought sunflower seeds from Richters. I planted them in Egypt in a desert. The result was great. You may see the pictures on this site, in a folder called "Sunflower".

My question is: Can I plant the the new seeds. Or should I buy again from you?

You can plant your own seeds. Our sunflower seeds are open pollinated which means that they freely exchange pollen among different sunflower plants, and as long as there are no other varieties of sunflower growing in the area, the seeds will be true to type. If you have other varieties growing in the area, you may find that the seeds produce varied offspring, not the uniformly large plants as that came from our seed.
