Balcombe Sunflower Competition is back for 2022!

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.

We have a limited number of free seeds available on flyers at Balcombe stores.

Got your own seeds? You can enter with those too!

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