Just as a bit of fun we are again seeing who can grow the tallest sunflower in Astwood Bank this summer. Unwins seeds have very kindly donated 250 packets to Astwood Bank in Bloom through our partners at Botany Bay nurseries in Edgioake Lane.
If you would like one of these free packets of seeds you can collect them from the till at Botany Bay. Some of you may already have them if you joined us for the Easter Egg Hunt.
Unwins say their seeds will grow up to 4 metres in height, so there’s a challenge we should take on!
If you can grow or place your sunflowers in your front gardens that will be lovely for everyone to enjoy from July through to October.
