A nursery is offering free sunflower seeds to local primary schools to get children interested in growing.
The offer comes from Herstmonceux based Perfect Plants.
Caroline Knight, from the nursery, said: “Growing sunflowers is a brilliant way to engage children because they grow so fast and have spectacular results in a short space of time.
“Schools can organise their own growing competitions (tallest/yellowest/straightest etc) and they can use the exercise for some great outdoors lessons together with photographic opportunities.
“Sunflowers are a magnet for pollinating insects and they also feed the birds too.
“We will offer schools a ‘Sunflower Pack’ at no charge which includes free seeds plus details of discounted products relating to growing.
“They just need to register with us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and they will receive enough seeds for everyone in their school.
You can also telephone 01323 833479.
Any primary school can request their free pack and seeds.
