A seven-year-old boy with special needs got through lockdown by growing a 15ft sunflower with his grandad in their Hainault garden.
While lockdown has been tough on everyone, it was especially hard for Logan Hall-Woods as he has a variety of special needs, including epilepsy and autism.
While he was stuck at home all summer, he started a project with his grandad, Mark Woods, to see how tall they could grow a sunflower in their back garden.
So far it has reached 15 feet and is still growing.
Mum Lisa Woods said: “Logan has thoroughly enjoyed growing this with his granddad and every day enjoys spending time outside looking at the bugs it attracts and learning how it follows the sun.”
