I'm hoping to grow Suntastic Yellow sunflowers that grow between 1-2 feet tall and about 1 foot wide. What size pot should I get? If anyone has any advice on the type of pot they prefer, such as terracotta, ceramic, plastic, etc., that would be greatly appreciated!

They can be grown in a pot of made of any of the materials you mentioned, or wood, metal, etc. Porous materials such as unglazed ceramic will dry out faster, so water accordingly.

If being grown for the full season I would recommend planting seeds or starts in Spring in a large pot to encourage an ample root system.

Are you intending to plant sunflowers now in September? Should I presume these are already larger flowering sized plants? If so, you could use a smaller container for a shorter seasonal display.

I planted some seeds of those couple summers ago. my pot is up to mid thigh. the width is about 4 foot. as I did not want to fill the whole thing with soil, I put in ---upside down 4 plastic pots to fill in the bottom. put soil in. planted the seeds and that was it. but I started this in May.

I won't be planting them until the spring/summer 2022, but I'm trying to get a head start on learning what I should be doing. I don't know too much about gardening yet.
