On the 1st May we gave out over 80 Sunflower seedlings to the children of Holmes Chapel to kick off our competition to see who could grow the tallest sunflower this summer. We asked you to send photos of how your Sunflowers were getting on and you can see the winner and all the photos we received by clicking on the link below.
When the sunflower head starts to turn brown, cut it off and hang it somewhere dry and airy. When the seeds are dry, rub them together to loosen them. Birds can eat your seeds if you leave them in the garden. You could even put them in a bird feeder.
