These arrived with some spotty yellow leaves. I picked them off, and luckily the problem did not re-occur. The flowers are not as bright a pink as I was led to believe from the catalogue, and they flop over easily. Probably would not buy again.

First three plants arrived, but was disappointed to discover that two had split stems and were wilting badly. Customer services were very understanding and immediately sent me three replacements, These arrived promptly, but the plants had been cut down and had very little green growth. I planted them out straight away and kept in dapple shade. No signs of life after two weeks - not sure if they will ever recover.

Was hoping for bigger plants

This plants came in July cut back to like 1-2 cm. And even after I planted and water them almost immediately after arrival two of the three plants dried out very badly. I doubt they will recover - but still waiting to see if they will come back. However one still has lovely green leaves and I hope it will make it. I suppose it might haven't been the right time to buy this plant. So be aware of buying them in July I would say from my experience.

Salvia trewithen cerise.

Such a pretty little plant, plus the leaves are sage scented. Well packed in good condition. The tiny cerise flowers are lovely.
