Children’s (under 10’s) Sunflower Competition

Weybridge In Bloom & Weybridge Allotment Holders’ and Gardeners’ Association have joined to organise a competition to grow the tallest sunflower in Weybridge!

Children were invited to participate in this new competition in May and collected seeds from the allotment shop and at the Meadow planting event.

By now, there should be some impressive sunflowers and we look forward to seeing the photos and receiving the entries.

Invitation to share photos of your sunflowers.
It would be great to see how they are looking. Please take a photo and share it on Facebook, including a tag to the @weybridgeinbloom Facebook page. You may wish to include the children in the photo, but this should be with the agreement of parents.

Suggested wording: “Here is my sunflower.. how about yours?”.

Sharing the photo on Facebook does not count as making your entry, see below for how to enter the competition.

How To Enter The Weybridge Sunflower Competition

The Children’s Sunflower competition has been arranged by Churchfields allotments to involve Weybridge junior gardeners in Weybridge in Bloom.

Entrants aged 10 and under, who live in Weybridge, should take a picture of their sunflower and measure it with a metric measure.

The sunflower must be standing up when it is measured.

Sunflowers that have fallen down do not count.

You can support your sunflower in any way you like.

Sunflowers that have had their head bitten off by squirrels don’t count either!

Attach the photo and send us an email to, telling us the measurement in metres and centimetres, with your name and address, age and school.

You will need your parent’s or guardian’s permission to enter.

Closing date for entries is 15th September 2019
