Years ago when my kids were little we used the ones from hamster food successfully. This year is the first year in years I've grown them. Planting seeds from poundstretcher I got reduced end of season last year. Any spare I don't use will be repotted and stuck in a tray for others to help themselves to for their kids for something to do.
I bought some sunflower seeds from eBay but they never propagated so I decided to try the bird food ones. They started showing up after a couple of days.
You have to pay £2 when you can buy seeds cheaper else where. If we all spend £2 elsewhere on sunflower seeds, we will be able to grow more sunflowers
Waste of money. Buy a bag of bird feed containing sunflower seeds and use them. You can grow your flowers and feed the birds. I've got a couple of dozen sunflowers starting to grow from these seeds.

£5 Bet to use in shop on tonight's Euro's game @ Paddy Power. Courtesy of The Sun.£0.65£587% off
Voucher on page 26. Free £5 in-shop bet with PaddyPower. To be used on tonight's England Vs Denmark game. Must be used before kick off. One voucher per customer.
The codes listed above are for booking without using the app or buying the paper. For the app, there are a different set of codes printed in the newspaper which you enter to get the £5 reward ( collect 28 codes to receive £5 - codes are usually a combination of 8 letters and numbers ). But entering those codes in the app from the newspaper also count towards the sun holidays once you have selected to start collecting. I've been on lots of these breaks - it costs £40.50 to book online, be that 1 person or 4, but that is a basic caravan without central heating, double glazing or bedding. 99% of the time, the camp will ring you a couple of weeks prior to your break to see if you would like to upgrade. That cost can vary between £28-£100+, but, like all holidays, it's all about what you are prepared to spend.
Where do you enter the codes? I've downloaded the app but can't see anywhere to enter them?

Not sure if you are aware or if it helps you in any way. The Sun sent us an email suggesting that as our holiday was cancelled (we never informed them of this), we have the 'privilege' to choose a holiday on their next round, which apparently started today. Basically we will have access to the booking site 24 hours prior to these who are collecting coupons. We dont know what to expect, will give it a try again now. However, for somebody like you, who paid for 4 days extra I do not know how ethical is not to tell they will have a second round. I refer to Greenbank, not to The Sun. We did not managed to reach any compromise with Greenbank. This was the first year I've used The Sun, had no idea they have more than one 'round', or maybe they did this because most of the people had their holidays cancelled, who knows.
has anyone got a code from today's paper? collecting for Chessington been to the shops 3x walked out with no paper.. have been out now and can't get one!! the code would be greatly appreciated! tia :)
I think they use the sun holidays to sell off the less popular dates (just a guess). Probably should never have had dates in the summer to begin with. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. If you can go September time then maybe there will still be dates left? I usually take my kids out of school for the week (no fines up here in Scotland!).
Thanks! This is what I thought too but they told me they work in partnership with Eurocamp. If they are the same, this makes it even worse, clearly they could have sorted out the issue, Eurocamp has plenty of caravans all over, so at least they could have offered alternatives. I can tell you for sure, for the park I've booked with The Sun, Eurocamp has availability. It's true, ours was starting on 21st Aug and they have starting with 22nd but I told them I'm open to alternatives and suggestions and they never offered this.
Eurocamp and Greenbank are one and the same. The call centre is split however and all calls from sun customers are sent to Greenbank. Either their system has faltered or they have suggested that there were way more holidays than there actually was. I’m sure we’ll never know.

Coop FREE Frozen 2 sticker album with the sun newspaper which is 55p ❄
What if you can only go on Saturday? This deal works out better then...
That's your odeon ;) .
To buy 10 issues of the sun is £5.50. A ticket at my local odeon is £5 on a weekday. If you use meerkat movies aswell it works out cheaper. Don't give your money to this paper
That’s all good AW0079. But when you buy the paper & someone has just plainly redeemed the code and put the paper back is frustrating, especially when you’ve paid for the paper unlike the person who has taken the code. So for all of those that do that, please don’t just take the code, buy the paper for it (y)

Get Your News Fix at Bargain Prices With The Sun
The Sun is the UK’s most famous tabloid newspaper, setting the news agenda with its current affairs coverage and keeping track of developments in the world of celebrities and professional sport.
The paper began life as a broadsheet in 1964, when the owners of the Daily Herald sought to reinvent their failing title. However, things really started to change when the Sun was purchased by Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch in 1969. After that point, the focus was on bringing news to the masses and providing more entertainment coverage. The size of the paper was reduced to its familiar tabloid format, and circulation exploded.
Since then, the Sun has remained true to Murdoch’s ideas, providing down-to-earth news coverage and content that appeals to the British mainstream. Accessible, a little bit rebellious and irreverent, the Sun continues to be the UK’s most popular daily paper.
