‘Shop Indie’ Turns ‘One’!
While in the midst of lockdown, here at Vicar Lane, we’re optimistically anticipating the end of the COVID-19 crisis and want to create a little sunshine along the way.
So we’ve teamed up with Bear Cool Honey Company and we’re challenging little gardeners of Chesterfield to get your green fingers in gear and grow your own mini sunflowers!
If you don’t have any mini sunflower seeds to hand, you can get them from Bear Cool Honey Company. We’re suggesting you go for a dwarf variety, to make them easy to accommodate in even the smallest of gardens.
We’d love to follow your sunflower’s journey, so why not share your pics online with #VicarLaneSunflowerStories.
Once we have the all clear for business as usual here at Vicar Lane we’ll get a date in the diary for all our mini-gardeners to bring their sunflowers down to the centre and create a sea of yellow here in St. James Square.
We’ve chosen sunflowers, not only as a symbol of sunshine and happiness but for the endless ways they support our wildlife from the bees, while they are in flower, to the birds when the seeds are ripe!
