Sunshine & showers here… but the sunflowers like it!

It’s been a week of sunflower prep – widening pathways through the field; hoeing the weeds; putting up signs (only to discover the wind has since blown them all down!) We don’t want the intense heat of this time last year but it’d be great to have something a bit more settled. Harvest is about to start – the combine has been checked all over and is ready to go… the sunflowers are all showing buds but we need some sun to encourage them to get on with it!

Our aim is to open our PYO sunflowers on Sat 5th August… this is our fourth year of growing the sunflowers so we can now make a rough estimate of when they will be in flower – but still we will hold off selling tickets until we are more certain.
