Steclaire, Buddha, Carmma and Holts finally made it to Fort Bull-Knox on Sunday. They had initially been too weak or hadn’t sprouted and organisers feared they would all make an early exit from the Bull-Knox Sunflower Contest 2020. The troubled plants were given extra time under the special care of Moomin Papa and have all made fantastic recoveries.
Two spares had been planted at the outset and, as all the original competitors have made it into the Fort Bull-Knox garden, the spares were adopted by two keen sunflower contest fans. Welcome to the contest and good luck to Dennis and Fozzy.
All of the arrivals were planted in random order along the front fence.
Meanwhile, the plants along the side fence have been growing well, with the exception of Helomi. There’s always one!
The flowers were measured on 17th May 2020 and here are the standings.
Team USA is leading the way.
Buddha needs some encouragement.
