Kiddi Caru Harlow Applauds Star Sunflower Grower

GREEN-fingered little ones at Kiddi Caru’s Harlow day nursery took part in the company’s annual sunflower growing competition, with one of them scooping second prize with a sunflower measuring a whopping 295cm.

Rhys received one of 300 sunflower growing packs sent out by Kiddi Caru in May, which contained seeds, a tape measure and height chart diary. The children took their packs home and planted the seeds in their gardens, so that their families could also join in looking after them and watching them grow.

At just under three metres Rhys’s sunflower beat last year’s record of 289cm and was just two centimetres shy of this year’s winning 297cm sunflower. Rhys received a cuddly toy of Kiddi Caru’s mascot Roo to recognise his achievement.

Louise Farrow, Nursery Manager, said: “The sunflower growing competition is popular with the children and their families as it’s something that can do together at home and the children also learn about what sunflowers, and other plants and flowers, need to grow. There’s always a lot of discussion at the nursery too about how tall everyone’s sunflower has grown so far. Rhys’s sunflower is very impressive, to have beaten last year’s record by six centimetres is quite an achievement!”
