SUMMER COMPETITION - PREPARATION

For our 2017 Summer Competition we are holding a Sunflower contest, we are looking for 2 winners who have the tallest Sunflower by the 29th September 2017 and also the funniest photograph with their Sunflower.

So you are wondering how to get involved?

All you need to do is send us your name and address to either our Facebook page, Twitter page or info@retherm.co.uk. Once we have received these details we will send you a pack of seeds that you can plant in your garden or greenhouse. Once you have started to grow your Sunflowers why not send us some progression photos over the next couple of months. 

The image below is a small guide on how to grow your Sunflowers, however if you have your own method you are able to use that instead.

On 29th September 2017 we will ask everyone who received our Sunflower seeds to send us a photo of their Sunflower with the correct height (no cheating) and also the funniest photo you are able to capture with your Sunflower whether it is of you, a friend or a family member. 

What happens after?

We will draw 2 winners on 2nd October with a prize for the tallest Sunflower and the funniest photograph. Our prizes will be a small gardening hampers which will include a bottle of wine and a variety of gardening items.

These items can be changed to suit children if needed.


What are you waiting for? Get in touch today and request your Sunflower seeds before they are all gone!

Why We Love Solar (And You Should, Too!)

Solar vs COAL.png

Over the past 6 months leading up to September 2016, Solar Panels have generated more electricity in the United Kingdom than coal. According to a new analysis, nearly 6,964 (5.4%) Gigawatt hours of electricity between April and September. That is 10% more than coal has generated which was 6,342 (4.7%) Gigawatt hours during the same period of time.

It all started one day in April, when more electricity was produced by solar panels than by coal, this carried on into the month of May. With coal producing zero power for the 1st time in over 100 years.

“This new data shows its popularity amongst homeowners and businesses and its falling costs. Now that we have a significant global and domestic industry, solar is one of the cheapest forms of power."
