Ready, Steady, Sow! Sunflower Competition To Mark National Gardening Week

To celebrate National Gardening Week (30th April to 6th May), Linden Homes is running a competition for its residents to see who can grow the tallest sunflower!

Sarah Williams, regional sales manager for Linden Homes, explained: “We thought it would be a great idea to hold a sunflower competition amongst our homeowners, as we have many green-fingered residents, as well as a lot of children living at our developments. They can collect their packet of seeds from the sales and marketing suite during National Gardening Week and whoever grows the tallest sunflower by 31st August will win a £50 Amazon voucher.”

The Guinness World Record for the tallest sunflower stands at 9.17m, which was grown in Germany in 2014.
