    Noooooooo, in Aztec culture that is my Grandma's birthday and i'm really worried about her being reincarnated as a sunflower. PLEASE don't do it!

    They are beautiful. Go for it - but note birds and squirrels may get to it.

    Depends on your climate and seed source. Please don't plant anything that didn't come out of a seed packet and plant more than one seed. Sunlight, Water, and soil are all you need. We grow hundreds of acres of them around here every year. 

    Frost will kill it but sunflowers aren't picky about soil if you want it to bloom make sure it's in good rich soil most of the wild ones I see are happily growing in ditches with other weeds. Provided frost doesn't kill it, and your seed germinates, and you use good deep soil(they don't grow well in pots). You might get to see some flowers by the end of the summer. Then you can watch them turn their "faces" toward the sun and follow it  across the sky throughout the day.

    They grow best with others.  You should plant a handful.   A better outcome for cross pollination and more seed heads for the birds.. Added note:  You may want to start them indoors if you are in cooler climate.  Most planting above the 45th. parallel, other than cold crop plants, is done around Mother's day when the chance of frost is gone and not too far past mid June as to not be too warm on the tender young plants.

    If you would have said April 1st I would have wondered if you were trying to fool us . Don't put it too deep in the soil . Morning doves like the seeds after the flowers fall off .
