Sunflowers growing in Lincolnshire

Sunflowers never fail to cheer up a room – and this year the sunflowers in our bouquets are bigger and better than ever thanks to the recent good weather.

These sunflowers (pictured above) were grown in Lincolnshire. We work closely with all our four growers in the UK and have cut the time it takes to harvest the sunflowers and get them into store – which means they will stay fresher for longer on your mantelpiece!

Sunflowers are available in most of our stores priced £2.25 a bunch – have a look next time you’re shopping at Asda.

Asda leads the way in tackling under-age sales through focused training and by measuring our own performance using independent test purchases.

Each month every one of our stores is visited by an independent test purchaser to ensure they are always asking customers who look under the age of 25 for ID to prove they are over 18 when attempting to purchase age restricted products.

Our Challenge 25 policy is designed to ensure that you are asked for identification if you look under 25 in order that you can prove you are the required legal age to purchase the product.
