Can You Grow Sunflowers In Plant Pots?

Living in a small flat, i do not have a garden, but really like sunflowers – i’m thinking of buying a large pot, and trying to grow them. I have no idea if this will work – or any real details, such as how tall will they get? Or once they flower, do they come back each year? or do they die? Can you even grow sunflowers indoors?

Thanks for your help!


Hi, thanks for your question – you can grow sunflowers in pots! AND you can grow them indoors you will be please to know.

First, do some research into the type of sun flowers you want – they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are TALL some are shorter (which may be better for your indoor pots)

You will need a very sunny spot for your flowers – naturally, sunflowers grow facing east, so if you can match that, it will be much better.

Buy some good quality soil, and water regularly. Your flowers will not grow as large as the outdoor sunflowers, but they will still look great.

Thanks for the question!
