Fantastic collection, a wonderful display, love the colour. The petunias are spectacular and the cosmos varied and pretty, both are outdoing the salvias in my pots. Will buy again next year

The petunias were good. The cosmos and salvias both seemed to be unsuited to container culture and have largely given up flowering (Aug 3).

The pot collection delivered in May especially the petunias have been excellent. The April delivery did not perform as well. Not convinced Cosmos grow well in pots much better in the garden.

Great plants and produce a lovely show. Would perhaps have wished a lighter shade in the Cosmos to give a bit of a lift to the dispplay

The petunias have grown and flowered well but have swamped the other plants. The cosmos are very disappointing, the flowers rapidly fade to a very unattractive brown colour. I won’t be buying these again

All plants have flowered well. The star of this collection is Petunia Tidal wave red velour, just beautiful.
It is a great pity that I could not purchase from you The petunia tidal wave red velour on it's own I was after (3) of these for my window boxes!

I would not have chosen the Salvia for this collection I thought it detracted from the overall effect!!

Delighted with the wonderful display in two large pots especially the 'Tidal Wave Red Velour' petunias which spilled over down to the ground. Salvia 'Trewithen Cerise' is a lovely pink that contrasts so well with the petunias and the Cosmos 'Velouette. Have cut right back now in orderto get a second robust display in a few weeks.

Plants were really good - they arrived in two different deliveries on different days so I was concerned that the second lot were missing...
They have looked excellent, despite our very variable weather.
Shall certainly order again ! and am currently working through the new catalogue you kindly sent me.

Good quality, crimson plants were much better than the white, The crimson plants filled the pots and grew about a meter in diameter, and smelt wonderful, There were lots of comments on both the smell and look, the petunias were very dominant and the stand out flower.

Good strong plants and rapid growth. Soon filled pots with dark red colour. Would buy again.

The petunias and cosmos have performed brilliantly and the colour combination is superb. Unfortunately the salvias bloomed to begin with and then although looking healthy have not bloomed since. A little disappointing.
I have since bought two salvias from your sale plants and these are blooming well!

Petunia were excellent and the filler plant can't remember it's name. They were still in flower when we went away early November but over now although the plants still look healthy.
Cosmos not quite so good. Fewer flowers than expected. Plants arrived on time and in good condition.
The overall display was very effective and improved when the weather cooled off a bit.

Petunia Red Velour--star of the show,beautiful display and still going
strong.More 'trailing' than expected ,but no matter.
Cosmos Velouette---lovely,but rather disappointing after the first flush.
Salvia---Trewithen Cerise---OK.
Service always excellent--friendly,prompt and professional.

Floriferous fabulousness!

What can I say? People take photos of our window box when they walk past the house it looks so darn impressive. The cosmos are pretty, and so is the salvia now it's managed to fight its way past the petunias and cosmos! Very, very pleased with this set.

Those red velvet petunias are absolute beasts - I planted 2 in a pot on their own and they are MASSIVE and smothered in flowers!

The windowbox survived a week with no watering during a hot period - it did look like a dead, frazzled dessert when we came home, but after deadheading, trimming and watering it looked even more impressive the next day!
