Sunflower Competition

Last updated: 2.01pm, Friday 11th July 2014 by

One of the attractions at the official opening of the Baird Centre was the Our Space sunflower competition.

203 seeds were sown by visitors on the 25th of April and have been carefully tended by Our Space customers. Unfortunately many didn't germinate, some have snapped and slugs feasted on 15 of them. We still have 130 in the competition, all of these are growing well and, standing at 50 to 80cm, have been staked.

Most of those still in the competition have a chance of winning but the leaders at the moment are:
1. Sheena McCormick
2. Billy Grierson
3. Claire Brawley
4. Senga Cowie
5. Colin McLellan.

We'll be out with the tape measures again when they reach the 1m mark and will update you again then. If you want news of your own sunflower just contact us and we'll get back you with measurements or news of its sad demise.
