No Transplants Please

I recently transplanted my sunflowers into my garden. They were about 6 inches tall and very healthy looking. Notice how I said "were". I came home the other day and noticed that every single one of them had slumped to the ground and in various stages of whithering. How can this be?? I thought sunflowers liked the sun...that's why they are called "sunflowers"!! Well, after some research on the information super highway I found out they don't like to be transplanted; but prefer to be sowed directly into the dirt. OK now I know. I am going to get another pack of seeds and start over.
