We buy our seeds from True Leaf Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you do not have your own seed supply, you can order from us. We offer two 3 ounce packets of organic black oil sunflower seeds, which is enough for 2 crops of sunflower shoots. Each planting yields up to a pound of shoots.
Use all of the packet for each planting. Soak the seeds in clean, non-chlorinated water overnight. Rinse the seeds in a colander, and spread them as evenly as you can on the surface of the hydrated potting mix. Mist the seeds, and cover for 3 or more days. Do not remove the cover too early, or you risk drying out the stragglers that have not yet taken root. There will likely be white, fluffy mold on the surface. Knock it down by misting with water. This surface mold should mostly disappear once the cover is removed, and not cause any problems.
