🌻 Sunflowers for Summer 🌻

All the remaining bags of seeds have now been claimed. You can of course still get seeds from Seasons if you’d like to take part. They even have some that grow up to 4m tall!

In the Wixams Community Group we love gardening so this year we’ve kicked off a little project where we’re giving away free giant sunflower seeds! We think it would be great if this summer we saw sunflowers growing all around our town, and fun for kids to see huge plants growing in the garden.

Later in the year we’d love it if you could send some photos of your sunflowers to us (community@wixams.org) when they’re in bloom so we can add them to this page for all to enjoy. You can also share them with us in our Facebook group or the Wixams Photography Club.

We’ve put together some packs of seeds which we will put through the door of anyone who wants to join in. Each pack contains:

  • Approx. 10 yellow sunflower seeds – grows up to 1.5m (5ft)
  • Approx. 10 red sunflower seeds – grows up to 1.5m (5ft)
  • Growing instructions

When they’re gone they’re gone, but you can of course buy seeds from Seasons or other garden centres and still take part.

Thank you Seasons

We started this project with around 100 bags of seeds to give away, but after appearing in our newsletter email (to subscribe please fill in your email at the bottom of the page) and a post in our Facebook group all 100 bags had been claimed before the article had even appeared in the Wixams Newsletter! We clearly underestimated the demand and if we run this project again we’ll make sure to have more bags available.

Thanks to a very kind donation from Seasons garden centre in Wixams we have been able to put together another few dozen bags of seeds to give out to the community, so get yours before they’re gone! Thank you Seasons 👏🏻

How to get Your Seeds

If you want to take part all you need to do is fill in your address in the form below and we’ll pop them through your letterbox when we can.

And they’re gone!
