(C) Record the journey of your sunflower from seed to flower (see attached as an example)
(B) Now sow your seed (see attached)
- Fill your container with compost (or soil, if you have none) then level and firm with your hand ( this is so the seeds don’t fall through the compost).
- Sow the seeds on top of the compost. If they are large, you can push them into the soil. Otherwise cover them by sprinkling a little compost over them.
- Write the name and date on your label, and insert into container.
- Water the seeds evenly.
- Place on a sunny window sill.
It’s time to sow some seed
(A) So gather your materials ( see attached)
- Recycled containers (if using loo rolls, just push some kitchen paper into the bottom and stand it in a container.
- Compost or soil (remove any stones so it’s nice and fine).
- Seeds eg sunflower ( you’ve probably received some in the post by now).
- A watering bottle (ask an adult to pierce some holes in the cap by heating a clothes hanger with a candle flame or use a drill).
- Labels ( cut strips off a used milk carton) and marker.
