Q.Will Deer Eat Sunflowers ?

Zone 97304 | eikandgolf added on February 20, 2023 | Answered

I would like to plant several kinds of sunflowers. I did not realize there were so many varieties. I’m 100% disabled Vietnam veteran and can’t do much in the yard. Please help me and make some suggestion what might grow well in my zone so the birds will be able to enjoy the seeds.
