🌻 Sunflowers for Summer 🌻

All the remaining bags of seeds have now been claimed

In the Wixams Community Group we love gardening, so in March 2022 we ran a little project to give away sunflower seeds to homes all across Wixams. We started with a couple of large bags of seeds of giant yellow and red sunflowers. These were put into around 100 packs of 10 seeds from each variety, which we gave out to the community. After a post on our Facebook group every single bag was claimed in just one evening! We were overwhelmed by the response and wanted more people to take part so we reached out to Seasons garden centre in Wixams. Seasons were great and, despite their limited stocks, they gave us enough seeds so that we could put together around 50 more packs of seeds which we were able to distribute. Thank you Seasons! 👏🏻

For 2024 we’re doing another seed giveaway and this time we’re giving out bags all harvested from the amazing plant pictured below, which grew to over 6 foot tall and had multiple flower heads. The plant grew from seed which must have dropped in the soil from 2022, so we’re not 100% sure of the variety, but it’s likely to be Sunflower Hallo, a great variety and easy to grow.

To claim your free seeds please just add your address in the box below and we will pop them through your letterbox in the next week. Each contains approximately 25 seeds and growing instructions. Please note this is open to residents in Wixams only.

All bags have now been claimed.
