I have tried several times to grow sunflowers, but seed and purchasing potted plants without any luck. Any suggestions?

How disappointing for you! Sunflowers thrive in full sunshine and summer heat and they like lean soils on the dry side. Maybe you are killing yours with kindness? Try growing in a different spot and watering only once or twice a week. Hope this helps!
