These grew at different rates/heights and the petunias looked very straggly and swamped the osterspernums etc. I wold send you a phot but have cleared the pot.

Plants turned out to be lovely, and lovely combination of colours. As this was a present it would have been good to include a picture of the plants - just reproduce the one in the brochure. I've done this before with a variety of tulips for a birthday, but what arrives is just a load of bulbs, it would have been so much nicer if a picture - perhaps a post card - of the finished flowers could be sent. I think it's a really good idea to put plants together in the brochure for people like me who have difficulty imagining it.

Have bought these for pots at the front for the last three years and this year very disappointed and not impressed which is a shame.

Great petunias but pixie lupin very disappointing. I grew them last year and they were lovely. In this collection they have struggled to hold their own with other plants.

Slightly disappointed. The mini lupins, although very pretty have been swamped by the other plants and seem a little sickly. I have had an aphid issue with all my lupins this year and these have been v badly effected. Now the petunias and osteospermum are still going strong but the lupins are pretty sickly despite plenty of tlc

Very vigorous. Look amazing. The petunias have needed some support as are quite fragile and prone to breaking off in a breeze. I did add a little colour to this selection with the scaveola and a gorgeous nasturtium which I am pleased about. The lupins are amazing but need v regular dead heading to keep flowering. I am not sure they will last to the end of august though as beginning to look a little scrappy.
