What's going on with my sunflowers?

iamzvonko(5)August 6, 2012

My sunflowers have lots of flowers but they're all small and the petals fall off after a day or so. Well, I'm assuming that they're falling off. They are fenced in so I don't think anything is getting in to eat them.

Also, none of them have any seed.

The package said they were "Burpee Thousand Suns Girasol"

Thanks for any feedback.

Goldfinches love to pluck petals to get easy access to seed.
