Sunflowers have deep taprootsSunflowers have deep taproots so it is important to turn over the soil and add compost to at least 2 feet deep. They are also heavy feeders so adding a slow release granular fertilizer to the soil will benefit the plants. Instead of amending the soil you can try to grow sunflowers in deep containers.
