These flowered sparsely, although what blooms appeared were pretty. Possibly the summer conditions had a bearing on this, but all plants were grown in new compost and regularly watered etc.

All told, not successful, but the plants arrived in good condition and in the time scale quoted.

Great service. All the plants are performing wonderfully. Hopefully will continue to do so for awhile yet.
