Barbara Allen still has a few seedlings for sale at £1 each. Each plant comes with the following instructions:
Your seedling has been grown from a Mr Fothergill's Giant Single Sunflower packet. All seeds were planted on the same day, in exactly the same way. You may grow it on however you prefer – in the open ground or in a pot.
It should be cut off at ground level for judging/measuring. There is a 'results' day planned for Sunday 7h October 2012 at 2.30 pm, along with a sunflower afternoon tea (£2.00) in the Parish Room. Bring your cut-off plant, and its measurement from ground level to the top of the STALK (not flower), labelling it with your name, to the afternoon tea to see how your sunflower compares to others. There will be a prize for the tallest, and another for the largest diameter head. Thank you for supporting the Langham Parish Room Fund – hopefully you will have some fun growing your giant sunflower.
