This weekend we planted some sunflower seeds for a competition to see who can grow the biggest sunflower. We are all really excited to be taking part and we hope our sunflowers grow nice and big.

First up we had to plant the seeds. We took some soil from the garden, the Little Man was keen to help with this.

Using a trowel he dug up some soil from the edge of the lawn. We are planning on digging the grass up here anyway to plant some garden herbs. We may just need some bigger garden tools for this job.
We filled the plant pots with the soil and then we all planted our sunflower seeds.

Finally we left the plant pots in a warm sunny place and will be keeping our fingers crossed they start to grow very soon. Then hopefully we can plant them in the garden.

We planted our seeds on May 11th 2014 and will be recording their growth for the competition.
