The Electric Sunflower

I receive many emails letting me know about the latest gardening products but i have never had on which could possibly change the way we get electric in our homes. 
The PowerFlower is a dwarf Sunflower which features a unique waterproof USB port, pre-installed into the stem, for charging a range of devices with USB connections. It works using the natural energy in the plant  a strong charge is created due to friction built up in the fibrous tissue of the plant stem. However, the exact technology of the patented ‘S-Stem’ is being kept a closely guarded secret for the moment; however
it’s guaranteed that the PowerFlower will change the face of gardening and energy sources across the globe.
The #powerflower can be used to charge mobile phones and tablets or can be used for lighting. Plants are supplied 12 inches high, and in bud. Customers can buy a ‘SunCharge’ model,  Alternatively, the ‘SunLight’ model is available, where the main flower head has a light bulb socket pre-installed, meaning the plant can be used for lighting in the home.

Masterminded by Thompson & Morgan’s development team with the help of leading scientist Professor Paolo Rilf, the PowerFlower is a long blooming variety, which lasts up to 4 weeks in flower. Even when the petals fall and the seed head begins to develop, the whole plant is still producing electricity within the S-Stem.
New Product Development Manager, Michael Perry said “The PowerFlower is capable of producing unlimited electricity over an 8 week period. With a dose of Thompson & Morgan’s exclusive new Incredibloom® fertiliser technology, you can increase the strength of that electricity by up to 4 times.”
Thompson & Morgan is planning to release this variety during late 2014. When buying a PowerFlower, customers can choose between the ‘SunCharge’ USB pack, or the ‘SunLight’ table lamp unit, and plants are
ready for producing electricity immediately. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
