Are you aged between 5 and 25?

Are you feeling green-fingered? Then enter the Carers' Centre Sunflower Competition!

To celebrate the anniversary of our beautiful Carers’ Garden, we want to get Bath & North East Somerset out in the garden too. We’re looking for the tallest; smallest and oddest looking sunflowers you can grow, with prizes for each category.

To enter the competition you will need to pick up one of our special sunflower pots from the Carers’ Centre in Bath and fill in an entry slip so we have your contact details. There’s a small entry fee of £1 but that’s it - there are no other rules, except plant the seeds and get growing! If you can’t get to the Carers’ Centre, we may be able to post seeds out to you if you ask nicely ;)

Throughout the competition we’ll be posting tips and tricks on how to grow the best plant and updates on our very own Carers’ Centre Sunflowers on our blog; Facebook and Twitter. You’ll also have the chance to post pictures showing how your plants are growing. Everyone who posts at least 2 photos or updates on their sunflower progress will be in with a chance of winning our special Participation Prize too.

When you’re ready to enter your sunflower, take a final picture of your prize-winning plant alongside a tape measure so we can see its full height. You will need to take a picture which clearly shows the tape measure touching the floor and includes the top of the sunflower’s head. You will also need to show at least 1 person in the photo, holding the tape measure. You will also need to take a close up shot of the tape measure next to the top of the flower clearly displaying the measurement – no cheating now!! Either post the picture to Facebook or Twitter, or email the picture to sunflowers@banescarerscentre.org.uk including your name & contact details.

Last date for photo entries is 24th August. Winners will be announced at our Family Fun Day on 29th August.
