1) Go to grocery store where you buy daal, chawal etc
2) Ask for sooraj mukkhi k beej
3) If they have them then get 250 grams of them
4) Go to the nearest plant nursery
5) Ask for 24 inch pot, buy as much you can manage
6) Ask for baalu mitti mix with khaad
7) Buy the baalu mitti with khaad for the pots
8) Take these thing to your home or where ever you want to grow
9) Fill the pots with baalu mitti khaad mixture
10) Select the healthiest seeds from the grocery store bought sunflower seeds
11) Sow 4 seeds per pot and sow them half inch deep
12) Water generously
13) Take care that seeds dont come out of soil after watering
14) If any seed come out of soil then sow it again, next time be careful in watering
15) Keep the pots where they can get the maximum time of direct sunlight
16) Water daily
17) After 5 days seeds will germinate
18) After 10 days, keep only one seedling per pot and take others out and discard
19) Keep watering them daily
20) When they are 1 foot tall, support them with long sticks
21) They will grow 5-6 feet tall

There are many types of Sun Flowers. For Sun Flowers other than the one used for oil extraction, visit a garden seed store.
Izhar forgot to tell you that you must also talk to them, it helps as they know they are being loved.
