Well, here are our sunflowers, growing well and flowering.......
However, here are the other two plants - planted at the same time but when I transplanted them they ended up with the raspberry canes rather than near the conservatory.....what a difference.
If you are in the competition, I sent an email last week about measuring but in case you didn't get it......please measure to the highest point of the flower - petals and all from the soil once your sunflower is in full flower. I will close the competition when we have all the measurements in.
A few measurements from some other growers - abizar is 1m 63 and sonny is 2m 17.....and some have just given up the ghost.
Widget has been measuring as well.........I think this is the case of the attack of the 50ft bunny or in this case as the bunny maker says "No one knows that you are really a 32" bunny, Widget, which makes that sunflower - oooo, about 72". Not that he is cheating again or anything!
Widget really, it is the taking part that counts and it is all for charity. You are really rather competative. If you want to see what else Widget gets up to check out his blog...yes the bunny has his own blog!
Talking of charity - a huge thank you to all who have taken part as we have raised nearly £80 for Macmillan Cancer. Thank you all.
