The Big Sunflower Project wants to get as many people as possible growing sunflowers to learn about and raise awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy. Seeds are free and we do not charge for postage but if you would like to support the project and make a donation for your seeds you can read about how to do this on this website.

To receive your seeds send an email with the subject line ‘The Big Sunflower Project’ to Remember to tell us the number of seeds you would like and the address you would like these sending to.

Seeds are generally sent out in batches once a fortnight and are sent by second class post so please allow time for delivery. Unfortunately we are unable to send seeds outside of Europe at this time but we welcome participants from around the world if they can source their own seeds.

Take photos and share

In return for the seeds all we ask is that people share their photos – these can be photos of you planting your seeds, of your plants as they grow or when they have flowered.

All the photos displayed on this website have been submitted to the project since it began. Sharing the photos helps The Information Point raise awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy, as well as allowing participants the opportunity to see the sunflowers being grown by others taking part in the project. The photos also help evidence the achievements of the project when we are applying for funding and successful funding applications mean the project can continue each year. Photos may also be displayed in our newsletters and on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr and Instagram pages.

We love to hear about the people who grow our sunflowers, so don’t forget when sending your photos to tell us something about you or the group that grew the sunflowers, where in the world you grew your sunflower, how you heard about The Big Sunflower Project, why you decided to take part and how tall your sunflower grew.
