It takes 90-110 days for black oil sunflowers to mature so if you plan to dove hunt over them plant them no later than May 1st-15th depending on the variety you choose

We planted our Sunflowers along with Corn & Milo little over a week ago sure to plant plenty because the Deer like to eat them when they first make a head on them.
