Please take a moment to read the important information below before applying for seeds.
The Big Sunflower Project relies on funding and donations to keep going. The project is not associated with any freebie websites and project seeds are not freebies or free samples as has been promoted by a number of these organisations in recent years. Please do not share information about the project with these organisations. The project does not have the capacity to deal with the number of requests generated by being advertised on these websites and if featured, it will force seed distribution to stop. Please read ‘The Best Things in Life are Free‘ for more information about this issue.
300 packets of seeds containing 50 seeds will be distributed in 2020 – one packet of seeds per applicant. Requests for seeds must be submitted via the form found on this website.
Anyone is welcome to apply for seeds but priority will be given to families affected by centronuclear and myotubular myopathy, community groups and good causes. Previously, seeds have been donated to schools and nurseries, community groups, groups who work with disadvantaged people, hospices and youth groups to name a few, so as well as raising awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy, the project supports the activities of these groups too.
If you are chosen to receive seeds, you will receive an email with further information about taking part and it will be announced on the project social media when your seeds go in the post.
Seeds can only be sent to the UK and Europe due to import and export rules but the project wholeheartedly welcomes participation from anyone who wants to raise awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy by growing a sunflower and people who buy their own seeds are welcome to join in (if you would like to do this, please get in touch advising where you will be growing your sunflowers, so you can be included on the project map.
