We launched our sunflower competition on 6 May when we sent you home with your seeds in a pot. Since then things have progressed nicely and we are now hearing about sunflowers that are as tall as a Cub.
We’ve got quite a few pictures now so have put the newest ones first.
Starting to look a bit past its best
Last time we saw this it was only up to the to of the bricks. Now look at it
Coming on nicely and the flower is starting to form
The tallest one is 2.34m. Can anybody beat that?
Crikey, it just keeps growing. Lovely flower out now and 2.5m tall
Nice shoes! Sunflower still got a way to go though
Now even taller but with the first signs of a yellow flower on the very top
20 days since the last picture and how it has grown
Coming on nicely – make sure you keep it watered
Coming on nicely
No slugs when you grow your plant indoors
Plant is a bit nibbled but still growing
Growing nicely but not Jacala height yet
Two plants to choose from
The tallest flower that was reported to us was Jacala’s 2.5m monster, closely followed by Adam’s 2.34m. Well done to all our growers. Hopefully the birds will enjoy the seeds.
We’ve heard that Alex, Zack and Akela did not manage to grow their sunflowers.
