How Much Water Does a Sunflower Need?

Answer

Sunflowers require enough water to keep the soil moist but not soaking wet. If you plant your sunflowers in a pot, you will want to water them every few days. Also you will want to plant them at least 15 inches deep in the soil. If the sunflowers are planted in the ground, you should test the soil every few days to make sure it is moist and not dry. You can also fertilize sunflowers to make them grow better.

Sunflowers are very drought tolerant and do not need a lot of water. When it is first planted is when they need to most water about one fourth cup a day until it is well established. In very hot climates you do not want to deprive the plant so water at least once a week during dry spells. You can find more info at: www.sunflowerguide.com
