I have only one dahlia that has come through.
I followed instructions very carefully as I haven’t grown them before.
Another had come through and I think slugs had got that one.
After approx 2 months in the ground, I dug up a tuber to see what was going on and then the rest and they were all slimy and rotting .
Any advice appreciated as I would like to try again next year.
Thanks
Andrea

A wonderful, vibrant combination for a window box or pot. Plants were well packed, very healthy and gave a stunning display for months. I would recommend and certainly buy this window box collection again.

Stayed in flower on our balcony all through the summer and are still going. Lovely complimentary colours.

Good because it was an interesting and different pair of plants. But I thought they were not well matched size-wise, and it would have been worth pointing out that the dianthus would collapse if not watered profusely. I garden in France, so possibly both qualifications would not apply n the UK.

Only about 50% of the plants arrived ready to plant, the others needed a lot of TLC and arrived almost dead.
Luckily my mother is an old hand at gardening and nursed them back to health and they provided my sister with a glorious window box for her London flat - she is on a main road and they have survived the horrible pollution and given her a beautiful display on the balcony.

Again the plants are too immature and need to be put in a green house to bring them on. I don’t have a green house so I lost many of them. Those that did survive eventually did quite well....but not until August.

Maybe the hot summer affected them. Not as good as previous years

For some reason this year, unlike other years, the erigonon seedling plugs didn't grow at all and one was dead on arrival. The other plants have grown but not as well as last year.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your review. we are very sorry to hear that your erigeron failed this summer and have left a credit on your account to use against your next order."

Very pleased with how this combination looks in my garden pot. I admired the picture on the site and thought I'd try it as I'd never grown either of these plants before. Didn't think mine would look as good as the pic on the site but it does...it's beautiful! Definitely buying again next year.
