Hi. First year to grow Mammoth sunflowers . They are apx 7ft tall. (they are exciting to watch:))

Curious as to when the flower head starts to set. Do they put on all their height first? and then the seed head starts to form?

Thanks

Oh, no. I don't have any flowers. Sucks. A large storm just passed dumping two more inches of rain. So, maybe, they will set flowers soon! I'll let you know. TY for replying.
