We hope your sunflower is off to a great start!
There are three main prizes up for grabs:

The largest flower (measured in cm)
Here is how to enter:
You can enter any category and more than one category.
Simply send us a photo of your sunflower with clear measurements in the image and written in the email by 28th August.
Winners will be announced on the 31st August and there are a range of goodies including hampers (children's or adults!)
What to do
May - August
Plant your seed! Fill the pot 3/4 of the way with soil, make a little hole with your finger and place the seed inside. Fill the pot with soil. Make sure to add your email to our list of entries! You can do so here
Keep your sunflower well watered and in a sunny spot. Once you see a sizeable plant coming out of the soil surface, transfer the plant to a larger pot or to your flowerbed in a sunny position.
If the sunflower starts to grow very tall, you may want to consider a support.
It's time to submit your sunflowers! We are looking for 3 seperate prizes to award. These are:
Sunflower with the biggest flower
Sunflower with the most heads on one stem.
So take a photo with a measuring tape in clear view and send them in! The deadline and announcing of winners will be 31st August. You can email your entries here along with your names, age, and contact details.
