Sunflower contest open to children
Children across the county are being reminded to get sowing soon if they wish to compete in the Killinick and District Garden Club's giant sunflower competition in September.
The contest, which aims to encourage young people to experience the wonder of growing a plant, will see children of all ages show off their home-grown giant sunflowers at the show this autumn. Those who put in the effort are sure to reap the rewards as the best sunflower-growers will receive special awards.
The children's entries are always a key attraction at the annual garden show and the sunflower contest is expected to be a huge highlight. Seeds to 'Grow and Show' are available from Mary-Ellen at the Killinick and District Garden Club
