So, who can grow the tallest sunflowers in Carrigaline? Tidy Towns are running a competition to encourage individuals, households, schools, businesses or whomever in the community, to get involved in growing sunflowers again this year. Sunflowers are a valuable food source for birds, bees and insects, thus enhancing biodiversity in our surroundings. They will have a variety of prizes on offer for the tallest and most impressive sunflowers at the end of the Summer months. All you need to do to enter is to send a text to 085 144 4206, making sure to include your name and address. Towards the end of the Summer they will make contact with all entrants to organise judging. To get the process started, begin by sourcing and sowing your sunflower seeds in pots.
