Guernsey Flower Maze Shut Down!

The Guernsey Sunflower maze has had to temporary close because it got damaged it the recent storms that have battered the United Kingdom. The maze which is situated in Saumarez Park had to close after being damaged by strong winds and heavy rain on Sunday.

The maze which had only been going for five days but incredibly in that five days over 1,500 people had visited. The sunflowers which for the flower maze are more than 7 feet high.

The organisers of the Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden said the storm had knocked down flowers and left gaps in the path, also many flowers have had their petals blown off.

As a result of this the organisers believe it would not be fair to carry on charging visitors to the maze.

Margaret Boucher, who is a volunteer gardener on the site, said: “We were astonished at the impact the maze had and delighted with the number of people who visited both gardens – many for the first time”.

The sunflower maze will reopen to the public on Saturday mornings between 9am to 12pm.
