Balcombe Sunflower Competition


Balcombe Sunflower Competition is back for 2020!

Balcombe Sunflower Competition is a fun, friendly challenge that encourages village residents to go head to head in a bid to see who can grow the tallest Sunflower.

The competition is completely free to enter and is open to all Balcombe residents, children and adults, individuals and families.
Due to COVID-19, we’ve had to make a couple of changes but you can still get your hands on some free seeds.

  • We have a limited amount of free seeds available on flyers at Balcombe stores.
  • We also have some willing volunteers who are happy to deliver seeds to your door.
  • Got your own seeds? You can enter with those too!

PLEASE ENSURE YOU TAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP YOURSELF SAFE WHEN COLLECTING FLYERS OR HANDLING SEEDS SUPPLIED BY US.

Entries need to reach us by 1st September, Winners will be announced at the Gardener’s Association Autumn Show on 5th September 2020.

Tallest Sunflower Wins, but there are nicest flower and runners up awards up for grabs too.

Entries can be sent to us via email – balcombesunflowercompetition@gmail.com, we also have a blog which will be updated throughout the competition.
