Did you know that the Bowden SunMaze is one of Canada’s original Sunflower Mazes? That’s right, and there is nothing quite like the unique experience of navigating a field grown from 300,000 Smiling Sunflowers! The Sunflower Maze is usually open from early August until mid October, however, if you want to come when it is blooming, it is best to visit during August, check our Facebook page for Bloom Updates. Each year the maze tends to bloom at a different time and is largely affected by what kind of weather we get.
We planted 5 patches of sunflowers this year, each around 2-3 acres. Our goal was to extend the bloom from 7-14 days to 30-40 days. We will have to wait to see how well this works, so definitely check out our facebook and instagram pages for up-to-date blooms. Ultimately the frost in early september will mark the end of the bloom period in the mazes, when that will come we don’t know..
