I'm getting married in October and would like the bridesmaids to carry sunflowers as there bouquet. If I plant sunflowers in late July or August, will they grow into October and be able to cut and use?
Farmers markets always have sun flowers!! and pretty cheap too..
You also might check w/ a florist...they import so many flowers now...just use the sunflower as the center & build around it w/ greenery..ivy, vinca...I dont think you can "time" sunflowers -- mine are never as pretty as those at our local farmers market..cj
I have to agree with CJ & Busy, I wouldnt rely on chance for something so important to your wedding day..... check out your florists and farmers market vendors. Have a wonderful day and all the best for your future.
That sounds sooo pretty, - it's too chancy. Get fake flowers as insurance. Check out the dollar stores and Wal-Mart. They all carry different stock. Some are more real looking than others.
why not do both? go ahead and grow some of the smaller quicker varieties, and get fakes if they don't get going in time??

Centerpieces can be things you already have around the house. This is an antique pitcher that belonged to my Mama, I added some fresh cut sunflowers from a nearby field and ended up with a beautiful centerpiece for my reception tables that didn't cost a dime!
