Residents across Derbyshire have been excitedly sharing photos of their huge sunflowers over the past week and we wanted to highlight a few that caught our eye.

It all started when eight-year-old Layla-Rose Cousins sent us a photo standing next to an impressive 11ft 6inch sunflower that she grew from seeds given to her by her older sister.

Since then, people have sent in photos from all over Derbyshire with varying sunflower sizes and we’ve compiled them all below so you can see if your own sunflowers can compete in size.

Whilst another said: “Wow amazing Layla, a lot of love and care taken in growing them, well-done missey.” A third added: “So lovely. Pretty queen. Absolutely gorgeous!”

Emma Weston tagged her friend and wrote: “This could have been my sunflower if you hadn’t pushed it over and broke the head off.”
