The plant was in very good condition when it arrived and is thriving in its pot. I bought some other plants and they are all doing very well. I am impressed and will use your company again.

Too much excessive packaging and single use plastic for delivery. The plants themselves were fine.

I grew this in summer 2018 as part of my "bee balcony" – a pot-garden of pollinator-favourites on a sunny, fourth-floor London balcony. The colour is stunning, it's ideally compact for container-gardening, and the bees and butterflies love it! What I learnt: don't overwater or let stand in water, line the bottom of your well-draining container with plenty of crock, and yours will thrive.

Tiny plant when it arrived but managed to nurture it to 30cm and it did produce a few flowers. Hopefully it’ll be better next year. Lovely colour.

Great

I bought one of these earlier this year and it has been great. It is still flowering prolifically and looking wonderful and has required only minimal deadheading and care.
