Fillpots Sunflower Competition

Fillpots Sunflower Competition

We’re delighted to announce that we came second in Fillpots’ annual ‘Tallest Sunflower’ competition – a fabulous result, especially with the  added complications of the hottest summer for years!

84 Primary schools across North Essex were sent a pack, with seeds and instructions grow fabulous sunflowers. Our budding gardeners were awarded second place with a sunflower that was 208cm tall, earning the school a £40 voucher to spend in the Garden Centre. They wisely spent the voucher on a selection of herbs, some potting compost and some tulip, daffodil, crocus and snowdrop bulbs to be planted during Wednesday after school club.
