FAQs

What will I learn in 12 weeks?

 

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

When you receive your sunflower seed kit, we will send you weekly tips via email and text about how to care and nurture your sunflower. These will follow the stages of growing a sunflower like germination, seedling, maintenance, indoor care, outdoor care, flowering and harvesting.

 

 There will be online games and prizes along the way including opportunities for you to share your progress pictures - that may even end up on a billboard near you!

I'm under 18, but I want to join. Is there a way?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

Due to our terms and conditions, you cannot join on your own, why not ask someone over 18 to enter and join along with them!

When is the deadline to join?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

 

We have 400,000 seeds to give away, and we will distribute them on a first-come-first-served basis. When they're gone, they're gone! Our advice is to sign up fast.

Will I have to pay?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

No! We will send the free seeds to you for free. The exclusive content is also free to access and the prize draws throughout the 12-week journey will be free to enter.

I don't have a garden. Can I still join?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

Of course! The more the merrier. We understand not everyone has access to an outside space, and we designed this challenge with you in mind. All our tips will come with indoor care advice too, so you can grow a sunflower at home.

Will you supply compost and pots?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

We will only be sending you a seed pack and a weekly calendar for you to hang on your fridge. We will offer advice on where to find any supplies you might need and often you can use things lying around the house. An empty tin is a great pot to sow your seed in (just make sure you make a drainage hole in it)!

What's so special about this challenge?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

Together TV wants you to grow a sunflower to boost your wellbeing, connect with your community and grow as gifts for your friends and family. We will be guiding first time gardeners every step of the way with weekly emails and even text reminders to water your sunflower. We want you and your sunflowers to grow this year.

How many seed kits can I apply for?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

Whilst we've got thousands of seeds, we have to limit it to one per person. However, if you want to compete with a household member, you can both sign up and cheer each other on.

Why do you need my phone number?

UPDATE: We have now allocated all sunflower seed kits. You can still sign up to receive the weekly tutorials and hear about our prize giveaways.

Over the 12 weeks we will be helping you nurture your sunflower, and that includes checking whether it needs water. We found the best way to remind you is by text or Whatsapp. The messages we send will be free to receive.
