Contest launched to find 'fattest' sunflower in Falmouth and Penryn

First published in News

Children in Falmouth, Penryn and surrounding villages are being challenged by a national charity to grow the “fattest sunflower face.”

Youngsters are invited to take part in the growing competition organised by bibic, which helps children and young people with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities.

Geoff Cummins, chief executive for bibic, said: “As part of our Smile Campaign we are running a competition for children aged up to 16-years-old to grow one of the smiliest plants around, the sunflower.

“The aim of the competition is to grow the sunflower with the fattest face and the seeds youngsters will use have been bred especially to have large flower 'heads.'”

Seeds can be bought for £1, which goes to bibic, at http://bit.ly/1gyVsGO and further details and entry forms are available at http://bit.ly/1nIzzKp.
