4. Sow the Seeds
Make two holes 1/2-inch (1.5 cm) deep near the center of each pot. Sow a seed in each hole and gently cover with soil. Cover the cans with a polyethylene bag with a few small holes in it.

Cover the sides of the cans with a ring of vaseline to deter slugs. Position the containers in a sunny spot. Remove the bags when the seedlings' leaves appear and remove the weaker plant.
6. Water the Plants
Without water sunflowers will die quickly. If your flowers have more than one head developing, cut the extra ones later for an indoor flower display.
