The Giant Sunflower Challenge
To add a splash of yellow (or red) to the valley join in with the Sunflower Competition. Packets containing at least 5 seeds will be on sale at the Plant Sale at Bay Farm from 10.30am on Friday 8 May.
The blue packets contain Russian Giants and the red packets contain Red Sun Giants. Each packet is £1. Buy as many as you like and send them to friends and relatives. They can enter too.
If anyone is unable to make it to the Plant Sale to collect their packet of seeds you can collect them after Friday from Higher Dairy Farmhouse. There will be an honesty box and collection point set up.
Plant the seeds before the end of May, nurture and encourage them over the coming weeks to achieve the tallest and/or largest flower and to have a chance to be awarded the Sunflower Champion and chocolates!
If possible, grow the sunflowers where everyone can see them. When your sunflower has reached it’s tallest or largest, please send photographs which show the height and/or width measurement of your sunflower to Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries close at 5pm on 20 September 2020.
Winning entries will be posted on the village website.
Good luck everyone. Can’t wait to see sunflowers all through the valley.
