North Berwick Sunflower Challenge 2024

Have fun again this summer growing sunflowers and join in the challenge. We are looking for the tallest sunflower, the largest bloom, photos of sunflowers in your garden. The competition is open to all living in North Berwick and the surrounding area in East Lothian.  The closing date is 1 September 2024.


If you want a bit of advice on selecting and growing your sunflower go to this link - Royal Horticultural Society where you will find a page dedicated to sunflowers.




In each of the 4 categories there will be two classes, one for under 18s and one for over 18s.

Tallest Sunflower: Take a photo of your sunflower with a measure beside it.  You can grow the seedling distributed by us or grow your own from seed.


Largest Sunflower Head: Take a photo of your sunflower head with a measure across it to show the diameter of the full bloom, from petal to petal. You can grow the seedling distributed by us or grow your own from seed.

Photographic Competition A: “Sunflowers in my garden”: Take a photo of your sunflowers in your garden
