Course: Ran out on the road to Horsecroft, returned over fields to Nowton Park and the returned home via Town Centre . An unusual site for Suffolk I ran past, was this field of Sun flowers or perhaps I have never noticed farmers growing this type of crop before in this area. If you have ever attempted to grow sunflowers at home as a bit of fun or to try and get your children interested in gardening then you may be interested to know the world record stands at 25 feet 5 and half inches. This was grown in Holland in 1986.

Apparently sunflowers grow taller if planted on the northern side of fences and buildings this is because the plants stretch to reach the morning sun.
