Daucus carota 'Black Knight' reviews
Not quite what I wanted !
Reviewed 16th July 2014 by Yvonne Lally
Full germination and strong young plants. Some have remained in pots for potting on and some gone straight into the garden. All doing well and flowering in their first season so no problem with the product per se.............However, no hint of 'Black Knight' at all. They have all come white. Pretty and strong but outside my original colour scheme.
Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:
"Thank you for your review. Unfortunately there appears to have been a problem with a batch of seeds, and they were actually a mixture of white and dark. We have been unable to source purely dark seeds and are now selling these as a mixed set called 'Purple Kisses' - http://www.sarahraven.com/flowers/seeds/perennials/daucus_carota_purple_kisses_mix.htm. If you would like to receive a complimentary packet of this, please contact our Customer Service team who will be more than happy to arrange this for you."
