What is is this? A competition to encourage people to grow sunflowers for fun . . . nothing more.
I’ve planted some sunflower seeds outside and some inside. Following a gardening tip, rather than buying peat plant plugs I put some compost into half a toilet roll inner with some newspaper to stop it falling out the bottom.
Today the first sunflower inside raised its head, although still with its seed ‘hat’ on.
The fun is starting.
If you want to join in, all you need is a packet of sunflower seeds, which you can plant inside or out and a digital camera so that you post photos.
As well as twitter, there is also a facebook Twunflowercomp page.
