SUNFLOWER CHALLENGE 2023: WEEK 12 - Harvesting

Your team's sunflowers are still probably very young and may not even have flowered yet. So enjoy them whilst while they’re still full of life!

It’s always good to be prepared, so take notes on what Danny Clarke and Fran Lawton advise in their final video guide for when your sunflowers come to the end of their lives.

Hint: it includes a creating refuge for your favourite furry insect!

Did you know...

The sunflower head droops because it’s being weighed down with the heavy mature seeds! When your sunflower head starts to droop, you’ll know it’s time to come back to this step.
