I grew a sunflower last year.......it got huge but it died too soon so the seeds weren't good, the seeds will be in the middle of the flower but it takes a few days to be able to tell where they are.

 lol...they are on the center of the flower, the black part. I think you have to dry them. My 5 year old planted some this year, but we won't eat them.

 My daughter just planted some too. From seed, so I hope they do well. That would be really neat to get our own seeds!

 My MIL sent some little starter kits for my daughter and she wanted to plant them NOW, so we did. They weren't in the gardening plan for this year, so I guess we'll see. Sort of experimental.
