Sunflower challenge 2021

Returning this year, with a bee-friendly sunflower variety. Can you grow the tallest sunflower in Fitzhead this summer?

The competition is open to all ages, £1 per entry. 2 classes:

  • Children (18 years and under)
  • Adults

To enter, please contact the Fitzhead Events Group and we will supply you with your sunflower kit which includes sunflower seeds, plant labels and growing instructions.

Winners will be announced on Saturday 24July (measuring day arrangements and date to be confirmed).

To make the competition fair, all entrants grow the same variety of sunflower. This year we have chosen the variety ‘Valentine’ that is good for pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies.

More information on planting for pollinating insects can be found on the wildlife trust website.

If you would like to take part or find out more, please get in touch via email at or call 01823 400905.
