Cardwell Garden Centre were recently asked to help the 27th Greenock Brownie Group who meet every week at Lady Alice Primary School. To celebrate their 100th anniversary the Brownies have been asked to grow sunflowers, which are the same colours as the Brownies uniform.
We were delighted to help out by donating sunflower seeds, pots and compost to the group and enlisted the help of local horticultural expert and Greeno
ck Telegraph columnist George Irvine who went along to Lady Alice and gave the Brownies a demonstration in planting their seeds.
The potted seeds have been returned to Cardwell to germinate in our heated greenhouses, as sunflowers need a good temperature to get going. Once the seeds are good and strong, in about three weeks, the Brownies will take them away and donate them to good causes.
If you are a Brownie or know someone who is Cardwell Garden Centre have more sunflower seeds to donate to you. Please get in touch and we will do what we can to help.
