Once you have entered the competition, you can collect your free seed growing kit (sunflower seeds, 1 x pot, growing instructions and 2 entry tags – limit of one kit per child) from Eden Gardens from 1 July – 31 July 2019. Eden Gardens is located at 307 Lane Cove Rd, Macquarie Park. We encourage entries in the Children’s Seed Growing category to be made before 31 July to allow for maximum seed growing time.

Late entry, collection of seeds and late planting will be permitted up until 31 August – however, this will reduce the seed and plant growing time.
