Who grew the tallest sunflower?

We had 28 entries, we hope you all had fun growing your sunflowers :-).

 

The winner this year was Maeve with a sunflower measuring 205cm in height - well done Maeve! You can see photos of the winning sunfower on this page.

What can I do with my sunflower once it's finished flowering?

  • You can keep some of the seeds to grow sunflowers next year.

  • You can leave the seed head in your garden for the birds to enjoy over winter.

 

 

Did you know?

Sunflowers are so called because throughout the course of the day they follow the sun; twisting their faces to track it across the sky to absorb its powerful energy.
