Sunflower Challenge: Week 12 June 24

I’m determined to post on a Wednesday, so here is a very hurried update.  I’m spending most of my time keeping them well watered in the heat of this week!  Two lovely sunny flowers to report and some meteoric growth.



And here’s this week’s heights: Number One: 88cms – Number Two: 115 cms, Number Three: 148cms, Number Four: 149 cms and Number Five : 171cms – the biggest leap forward this week.  

Challenge details

Judging  day: Sunday August 16th,  Categories are: Tallest, Largest Flower, Best Looking, Most Bees on a Flower at the Same Time, Strangest/Funniest and Best Junior Entry.

This has come from a great idea put forward by @GardeningGent.  Sow sunflower seeds on April 1 and then report weekly updates. Mine are from a variety unknown seed packet left from last year.  All seeds were sown in peat free compost and then moved on to 10 litre pots filled with home made compost and a sprinkling of Fish, Bone and Blood. 

More to come next Wednesday or possibly Thursday. 🙂
