We are taking part in Nuturestores Sunflower Club and have been busy planting our seeds. We are using single giant sunflowers and have decided to start them off inside, as last year our sunflowers were pretty late and lame!
So we decided to plant our seeds in egg shells, as sunflowers don't like to be transplanted and this is a great and Eco friendly way of doing this.
Both the boys love gardening which makes my heart sing and we will be planting more seeds over the coming weeks
We put one seed in each egg shell and covered with more soil.
We are going to be doing a scrapbook like Nurturestore have and keep a record of growth etc over the coming months too. When I asked Mini what did the sunflowers seeds need to grow, he told me that they need soil, water, sunshine and lots of love.
