How does your garden grow?

Have your say

The race is now on to find the tallest bloom in north Northumberland and crown its gardener as the 2011 champion.

Monster flowers are popping up across the area now as youngsters have had the chance to plant, water and nurture their beloved yellow plants.

And now we want to see them.

If you think yours is the biggest send a picture of the grower (aged under 16) with the flower and your name, age, address and details to us.

There are three prizes up for grabs as well.

The winner will receive a £25 WHSmith voucher while second place bags a £15 voucher and third a £10 voucher.

And they will be awarded their prizes a the Alnwick in Bloom prize giving at Alnwick Garden next month.

Send your pictures to Sunflower Competition, Northumberland Gazette, 32 Bondgate Without, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 1PN, email or contact Helen Millichamp on 01665 602234.
