Sunflowers, while always beautiful, can also be fickle and unpredictable! Our seeds were planted with the hope that they will bloom through August, they and the weather may have other plans. Please check Patch Conditions for information.


£5 for 6 sunflowers or £1 each.

The Maize that we planted to make the Maze is not good for people to eat.

Sunflowers are slowly showing! Cool but dry.
