Twenty sunflower seeds have been planted, marking day one of the 2nd Annual Bull-Knox Sunflower Contest.
Fourteen seeds were picked by quick off the mark facebook friends to take part in this coveted competition.
A further six seeds were chosen by less nifty but still pretty quick friends to be substitutes. Subs will enter the game should any of the original competitors be eaten by snails or bunnies or suffer any equally unfortunate fate.
2015 competitors are: Jojo, Knoxie, Princess, John, Marky, Radders, Moomin Mama, Moomin Papa, Abi, Coops, Kathryn, Gilbey, Clarky and Kirsty.
Subs: Caz, Abbey, Kevin, Debbie, Nicky and Elena.
Nigel Bull, aka Dad, aka Moomin Papa will initially be taking care of the seeds, offering them all equal care and attention, until they grow to a reasonable size.
The baby sunflowers will then move to Fort Bull-Knox and take their place along the blue fence where they risk being a tasty rabbit snack.
The tallest sunflower will be the winner. Good luck to all!
