Our sunflower competition winner is...
As Autumn arrived last week and the summer sun slowly waned in strength, it was time for the final measure to discover our sunflower competition winner; though our ‘2016 Summer Sunflower Growing Competition’ might be won by default this year.
With only two sunflowers having the strength to strive for that golden globe in the sky, the swiftly cooling climate prevented Tina’s sunflower from reaching its full potential. Pete, on the other hand, has proven he truly has green fingers, with his earlier start date allowing his sunflower to reach just over 4 metres in height!
Jokingly said to be high enough to act as a fire escape for the Sales Office, the sunflower almost reached the second story windows of the building, demonstrating the exceptional growth of the plant over a few short months.
Congratulations Pete, the nurture and dedication you have shown your plant has paid off, proving you are the best gardener of us all!
Our competition raised £20 for our chosen charity for the year, Romsey Young Carers.
