These have been a huge success. They are such an unusual colour and look brilliant in hanging baskets. Everything was a bit slow to get going this year so they only really started to show what they can do last month (July) but I will definitely buy them again

Did not do as well as I expected. Out of the 5 rooted cuttings I managed to get 3 going. Then noticed that slugs enjoy this plant as well.

The first delivery received were very poor wilted young plants. I did put in a complaint. The company quickly sent out another batch which was good, but these wasn't much better. I have lost nearly all these plants, either they didn't grow or just died. I have managed to replace them with some from a local nursery and they have been growing and flowering just fine.

These were real little beauties. Didn't need dead heading and held up well to some extreme weather. Very pretty and a real talking point. Really complimented the other flowers in the hanging basket and planters.

Healthy plugs which I potted on until they were established and then planted in a hanging basket. Covered in blooms, I’m delighted.

Not as prolific as I had hoped but really attractive and unusual. I should have found a strong contrast for them in the window basket as I put them with lemon verbena and it wasn't sharp enough.

The Can Can Black Cherry took quite a while to flower and were
deepest wine/black & velvety but not as prolific as I would have liked.

I planted three of these in a large metal planter surrounding a gaura lindheimerii Pink, also bought from you. The calibrachoa have filled the pot and the gaura gives it height. Lots of positive comments from passers-by.
