Reviewed 31st July 2019 by Sarah

It was supposed to be 4! The computer took over.
All the plants I bought this year were successful except the sweet peas which were a disappointment. I have suggested before that you send the plants out far too soon for those of us without a greenhouse. It was v cold and wet for ages after we planted them out in sweet pea baskets, exactly the same as previous years.
