what do i do with my sunflower now it has gone past its best

rugby, United Kingdom Gb

it is still in flower but the petals are starting to fall off



If possible leave it where it is so that the birds can eat the seeds

We cut ours when seeds are developed, then tie them into bunches and hang them upside down in a little 'neglected' corner of the garden for the birds. Means you can tidy up the borders and leave ready for planting new things.
