It’s the Year of the Sunflower and there’s no better way to get kids interested in growing than to plant some of these friendly giants.
Growing things inspires children to engage with nature, helps them to understand science and is a great way to integrate learning maths, reading, writing and much more. Who would have thought something so simple could hold so much excitement – and it’s all free.
This is why Perfect Plants Ltd (www.perfectplants.co.uk) is offering free sunflower seeds to primary schools this spring.
Based at a plant nursery in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, Perfect Plants is keen to get the nation’s small people gardening. It gives them a great, healthy start to life and provides tremendous fun too.
Apply now for a primary school pack of free seeds and instructions for growing sunflowers. They are the perfect garden plant; easy to grow with magnificent flowers that last for several weeks. Their huge, sunny faces appeal to all ages and they are great as cut flowers, a magnet for pollinating insects and they also feed the birds too.
The free seeds are garden giants which are perfect for a sunflower competition. Who can grow the tallest plant or the largest flower? Whose sunflower is the straightest, the most cheerful, the yellowest?
Growing sunflowers not only adds to the ‘green’ credentials of a school but provides great photo opportunities and potential for school news stories in local press.
Apply today by emailing Perfect Plants Ltd at: firstname.lastname@example.org giving us your school name, address, contact details and number of pupils. You can also telephone 01323 833479.
