hey! A friend has come over for a few weeks and she really wants to see sunflowers here (shes seen some pictures of sunflowers somewhere close to London Bridge or something?) and I was wondering if there were any sunflower fields or park with sunflowers around? thanks

The National Gallery, definitely. The is where the Van Gogh sunflowers are.
It is quite early for sunflowers especially with the snow. St James' Park usually has some. I would phone Kew and see if they have any under glass.

Most commercial growers are based around Spalding Lincs.

Possibly this publicity stunt for a margarine company...

Wrong time of year, 2018's sunflowers are still mostly in the seed packet

Only sunflower field I know is the 'living bird table' in Shipley Country Park, Derbyshire... so maybe the Lee Valley Partnership would be interested in copying that in London, nothing appropriate on their current website though afaict.

not much, but there's a patch of sunflowers at Whitehall Gardens, just next to Embankment station
