This year at Elderflower Fields, our friends from Wakehurst shared their expertise and helped plant sunflower seeds in our fantastic new woodland potting shed built by Sandy and her talented team from The Woodland Hut Company.

Many of you have been planting sunflower seeds at home and at Elderflower Fields. We want to see how they are going!
