Grow some sunshine with Gardena and Lynne Lambourne

Global gardening brand GARDENA has teamed up with sustainability influencer, Lynne Lambourne, to launch a social media sunflower growing competition for families to enter this spring. The competition has been launched with the intention to get families into their gardens so they can grow some ‘sunshine’ and boost community spirits, as well as a fun activity to occupy the little ones.

The competition will encourage families to get in their gardens, city balconies or roof terraces and plant sunflower seeds. Families must then nurture the plants and keep track of their growth. Lynne will also be posting ‘how to’ videos on her Instagram channel @lynnelambourne so families can follow the correct planting process.

Once the families are happy with the fully grown sunflowers, they can enter the online competition by uploading an image of their sunflowers onto Instagram and tagging @gardenauk and @lynnelambourne with the hashtag #growsomesunshine.

On Friday 24 July 2020, five winners will be chosen by GARDENA and Lynne who will each receive a GARDENA handtool set, so they can keep on gardening!
