Grantham readers impress with their towering sunflower photos




Readers have been sending in photos of their giant sunflowers to see if theirs can be crowned the tallest in Grantham.

Since publishing photos of Gordon Hilton's 10ft sunflower in the Grantham Journal on Friday, readers have been inundating us with photos of their own towering plants.

Mike Holroyd sent in a photo of his son's collection of sunflowers.

He said: "They haven't even bloomed yet but they're both taller than me and I'm nearly 6ft."

Louise Bailes also added her photo, adding: "Mine is at 10ft 6 and it's still growing."

Readers of all generations have been getting in on the challenge.

He said: "I have a feeling our sunflower is bigger than the one in the article. It's a beast!"
