Sunflower Competition 2019
R Green Gang and Year 3 were given sunflower seeds to grow....
I have been trying to grow some of the spare seeds but they are growing very strangely - long (up to 14cm), thin (2mm) and twisty with only 2 leaves.
R Green Gang have mentioned problems. I hope Year 3 are faring better.....? SHx
I have seen Mick Eaton (Judge for sunflower comp) and told him of our woes with the seeds we were given. He told me we can submit heavy heads from any sunflower we can grow. So last years saved seed has helped us out on the plot. If you can grow a heavy one I am happy to take it to the weigh in when the time comes in October
We are very lucky to have Jules from TCV to help run community sessions on R Plot.

Green Flag presented ! (by Lee Jowett)
Now to find a prominent place to display it...
Spot found, not that prominent -
have you spotted it??
Nick Packham from the organisation "Buglife" came to help enhance our "outdoor classroom".
R Green Gang had to work very hard (and very quickly - darkness was fast approaching) to rake and scrape the area so we could sow some wildflower seeds. Some were sprinkled on the prepared patches. Then there was the scatter sow - which was fun......
My favourite bit was the penguin shuffle to firm the seeds into the ground.
Fingers crossed the birds don't find all the seeds and that we have a mini meadow in the spring and summer..... SH
