I think the deepest planter I saw was 8 inches deep, and some varieties grow "small" (I saw one who had 18" advertised on the seed packet) so maybe, hopefully, I can grow some this summer...
(the spot I'm thinking about gets plenty of sunshine and is protected from too much wind).

I once had a sunflower reach a height of more than 6 feet from a 6 inch deep planter. Just make sure to use quality soil and don't let the planter dry out, you'll be fine :)

From an Earth Day event I attended, it is also a bad idea to fertilize sunflowers. Good soil, water and light are enough.

How accurate is UPS on their estimated time for next attempt with delivery?

I looks like I'm going to have to take some time off work to accept a package for DD#2  :-\

Appears to be a CYA move: an adult signed for the package vs just anyone. I've signed for a lot of packages but they have never asked to see proof of my age.*

Are there laws in your area about buying / transporting  knives / weapons? If so, hair cutting shears may count as knives for the purpose of the rules.

I've heard of more than one murder performed by library, photo, or other long & sharp shears - so they may indeed be categorizing them as potential weapons.

How willing are nail technicians to take on really nasty nails?  My toenails desperately need professional help but they are in very dire straights.  I assume that nail technicians have "seen it all" but I am still scared to go in for a pedicure with them in the state that they are in (fungal, one black nail, long and sharp, uneven).

Any assurances that they will help me?

They may not work on nails with a fungal infection, due to the risk of cross contamination.  I would call and ask.
