How To Grow Italian White Sunflower From Seed: For early blooming Sunflowers, the seeds can be started inside in pots or seedling modules from March. Using a seedling module, or small pots, sow 2 seeds per pot/cell. After the seedlings germinate and become established, thin to leave only the strongest one in each pot/cell. Transplant them directly to their final spot in the garden once the risk of heavy frost has passed.

Alternatively, sow directly into your flower bed from mid April onwards, sowing 2 seeds every 40cm.

Helianthus debilis does not require support. It prefers direct sunlight. It produces small, cream white flowers with a black centre. It makes a lovely cut flower. The more flowers you pick, the more flowers it will produce.
