Sunflower Competition

Sunflower Competition

To mark the beginning of spring and the start of planting season, we want to invite you to Get on Growing! Tying into April’s theme of growing your own and getting a head start on your garden, we are launching a sunflower competition to bring the sunshine into your green space. This is open for our staff and the people we support.


To get involved in our Get on Growing competition, you can request sunflower seeds from the Marketing Team who will post them out to you by the end of April. These should be planted by the end of May so they can grow beautifully in time for summer.


We’ll have prizes for:

  • Tallest sunflower
  • Best sunflower artwork/sculpture
  • Best sunflower photography


You can download our handy ‘Sunflower Growing Guide’ here which shows the step-by-step process of helping your sunflowers thrive- even in British weather!


If gardening isn’t your thing- don’t worry! You can also get involved in our Sunflower Competition by getting creative, so swap your green thumb for a painted one and craft a sunflower instead. You can submit your sunflower artwork, such as drawings, paintings, photographs, or sculptures, and be in the chance to win.

Send in pictures of your sunflower, and the process of it growing if you can, or pictures of your crafty creations to the Marketing team via . Please make sure you send in your submissions by 1st September 2023.


We can’t wait to see you all bring the sun, so Get on Growing!
