Sunflower gardening

Why does my sunflowers started wilting after I removed the old flowers? They are potted plants. Please tell me how to take care of them.

Hi, Well it depends on what variety of sunflower you have. Many are designed to just flower once and then die. Perhaps that's the variety you have. Also, sunflowers dry out quickly in pots so be sure it's getting enough water.
