Does anyone have or know of a place that has Lemon Queen Sunflower seeds that are reasonably priced or willing to give some away ? ( Looking for 1 - 2 lb )
Please contact me if you have some and willing to part with some.
I have done some searching for them and companies think they must be gold or something
I am getting into beekeeping spring of 2018 and would like to plant some for the bees.
Thank You

pretty pricey seed at around 40.00 per lb. Pretty too, I may have to try a couple of packets and save seeds for replanting.
I have never tried those since we grow the Russian giants both our bees and then the birds seem to just love that we grow them.
I have a wild flower bed, an Echinacea bed and will be adding other medicinal beds this coming spring.

Yes $40 a pound is a bit much in my opinion.

If you have a deer presence, they love sunflowers.
