sunflowers with plenty of pollen
Does anyone have advice regarding sunflower seed strains? I'm planning a bigger patch this summer which is new for me, usually I just rely on whatever pops up from the bird feeder.
My problem is I need some sunflowers that produce pollen. The ones from the feeder usually do not and I often end up with lots of blooms but no seeds, and I want it all! A long season of flowers (a multiflowered type, not the single bloom grey-striped) plus plenty of seedheads for the goldfinches and chickadees. Usually if I just have a couple wild ones coming up with pollen all the others will set seeds.... I just need to find some to provide the pollen!
