Mixed feelings as the verbena turned up its toes and died but the other plants have done very well. Rather disappointed overall.

Very delicate seedlings well packed. Love the collection-so delicate and fantastic colour combinations.

Plants arrived very late in very poor condition and made worse by being left by back door all day in rain storm. When I contacted SR uninterested and told to read small print that orders could take three weeks to arrive and could return them. Eventually told they would forward a prepaid label to return in wet//damaged boxes! Label never arrived so decided to plant anyway but Verbena , which had been cut well back never got going and died almost straight away the other two are just starting to take.
Really poor service from SR and poor quality plants. Very disappointed.

Despite careful planting and care, all the Verbena 'Quartz XP Silver' faded away and died within a fortnight. Virus problem?
