giant sunflower competition

Recommended Posts

Well I just saw the giveaway of some giant sunflowers and thought why not have a competition :)

Rules are pretty much the same as the pumpkin one.... start time is the same and you can use any crazy concoctions that you want.

The winner will be the one who has the biggest flower pretty simple hey?

What makes a winning sunflower? Height or width of the flower head? Or both?

There seems to be a few varieties to choose from.

^ Sunflowers AND pumpkins!

As for judging the winner, i think it should be in 3 categories.....Overall height of the flower, diameter of the flower head, and since sunflowers are grown for the seed, that should also be a category (if you can be bothered counting the seed)

As one of the prizes i can offer a caapi and hemp keyring?!

I'm not so big on the pumpkins but some of those sunflowers are really working for me. I might have to enter this comp, see how tall I can get a sunflower. That's very cool. Be nice to combine a huge height with an enormous flower though... The kids would love something like that!

Okay three categories sounds good.

Hight off the plant from ground level to top of flower.

Diameter of the flower.

And weight off the seeds from one flower.

How does that all sound?

You'd better have some pretty amazing soil to back up all these claims of grandeur Incog,

The sunflowers and pumpkins won't grow in your smack-talk alone :P
