Sunflowers For Arborfield Green

30 March 2020 17:12

In a time where we are not able to go to places as easily we want to make our community look bright and cheerful.

St Eligius Church are distributing sunflower seeds to many of the houses and would love to encourage you to plant sunflowers in your front gardens or pots on your balconies so that all can see them as they stroll around Arborfield Green.  

When your flowers appear take pictures and upload them to our face book page.

How to Sow Your Seeds

Plant 2 seeds together 1.5cm deep., directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days.  Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted if desired.  Water well until the young plants are established.

Sunflower Crafts

While you wait for your flower to grow why not make some sunflowers for your window to put next to your rainbows? 

For some ideas on how to make sunflowers see this link.

Make an extra one to decorate the church windows for all too see.

Place your sunflowers while out on your walk in the box under the church notice board.
