Thanks to year four the local birds are going to be stuffed all winter, as part of the grow it project. Now that we have harvested the heads we can now use some of the seeds to replant for our next crop. The majority of the seeds however will be going into our secret recipe fat balls for our local birds and wildlife, yes we see you Mr Squirrel!

Each sunflower head can contain anywhere between 1000 and 2000 seeds.
To harvest a sunflower you must wait until the bracts turn brown.
Sunflowers symbolise adoration, loyalty and longevity
