I have never grown Dahlias before, lost a few to slugs. Overwintered them, thinking they would not grow, but they all returned in spring, The size of the flowers are enormous they are beautiful. I have grown them in pots, but I didn't know how big they would be. Will get much larger pots for next year. Thank you

This was a beautiful collection. It would be useful to tell us in the description whether these collections are annual or perennial, but I am hoping to add one of these striking collections to my garden pots each year.

Service first class, they have flowered constantly non stop if dead headed. A lovely mixture of container plants. I will buy similar next year.

After a differcult start due to heat all items except the Cosmos did well in fact some are still flowering at the moment. The spring bulbs I bought previously are being replanted in less important areas and I have purchased more for an outstanding display in April.
Really pleased with the annual clinbers and also your service as some items were replaced when they failed to thrive

The delivery was excellent. Everything did well especially the dahlia s which have only just got frosted . Have saved the tubers for next year hopefully. Made two lovely display pots. Just a bit disappointed with the verbena as it flowered well at first and then just gave up. Plenty of greenery still though.

This is such a pretty Scabious and when it performed well, it was full of flower and lasted right up till I took it out of its pot and potted it up for winter. I have put one in pot and a second in the ground, so we'll see how they perform next year. Sadly one died. It was a very hot, dry year but I watered my very large pots where they were planted and the pots did not dry out. I am confident I shall have this lovely plant in my garden next year. I have also taken some cuttings, so fingers crossed, we'll see what happens - so exciting!

I planted two pots of these in early May and they have flowered non-stop and have been greatly admired. I fed them weekly with seaweed and dead headed daily. During the hot weather I watered them daily. They have given so much pleasure and have been trouble free. I shall plant more of these next year.

Plants in very poor condition. Apparently they had been in transit for over a week. Sent photos and was told half of them would be replaced. Told they were being dispatched the following day which turned out not to be true. Arrived about a month later which meant the plants were all at different stages and I was unable to plant up my pots until the replacements (which were also not of good quality) had arrived. Not the first time this has happened.

The colours are beautiful and the plants are strong and sturdy. We have had numerous comments on our tubs. A real triumph. We shall be back for more next year.

"Thank you for taking time to review our site. With protection from frost undercover the dahlia and verbena should over-winter for you.
