Spreading a little cheer


Following an awful 15 months of lockdown, death and despair, Little Ireland has decided to spread some sunshine and cheer by planting 150 Sunflower seeds on a popular Cleator Moor cycle/walking route.

Sunflowers are well-liked by butterflies, bees, birds and insects. They should also raise a smile from the public when in full bloom - which is expected to be around August.

The world record height for a Sunflower is 30ft, in Germany. Here in the UK, the record is 26ft, in Wigan. The variety planted in Cleator Moor won't reach such lofty heights, but should they should still provide an impressive display.

It's very doubtful that all 150 seeds will produce flowers - birds, weather, and a whole host of other things are against this. Especially brown thumbs. Keep your fingers crossed! 

Did you know?
Sunflowers were domesticated 3000–5000 years ago by Native Americans who would use them primarily as a source for edible seeds. They were then introduced to Europe in the early 16th century.
