I’m not sure how long it takes for them to grow but I do know that we planted them from seeds and they took over the garden plot within a year.  I would start them as soon as the ground temperature stays warm enough.

I think it’s dependent on where you live (zone).  Talk to your local garden experts.  Where I am in Ontario you would be right on time for sunflowers (if my memory serves correct).

I would start the seeds and keep them inside ASAP and then transplant outside when they are a few inches tall and the chance of frost is gone.

I would buy the plants already started at your local nursery. We have a shorter growing season and no guarantee of a lot of hot weather.

Ask at the garden center- there should be a tag in the basket of seedlings.

If you do buy seeds the information should be on the seed packet.

That will also vary though, depending on the type of sunflower and the number of hours of sunshine per day.
