Come and Pick your own Sunflower in Greendale – March 2021

Come along and enjoy the Sunflowers in Greendale this March 2021. 

Today, sunflowers remain a highly recognized flower, admired for its sunny charm and delightful disposition. These beauties are also still sourced for their seeds, as well as oils used for cooking and skin emollients. For a flower that reflects so many of the sun’s positive characteristics, it isn’t surprising that people enjoy basking in the sunflower’s warming glow so much.

 

Wild sunflowers are often photographed with their tall stalks and bright petals stretched towards the sun. Dress the family in some lovely clothes and take your own mini photo shoot 

The farmers have encouraged visitors to wear appropriate footwear as you will be walking around a paddock and be alert to local wildlife including bees as they love sunflower pollen.

Bring their own secateurs or loppers but be respectful to sunflowers so others can enjoy them.
