They all came out together and looked stunning. Hot weather meant they didn't last as long as expected ...but pleased with display.

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!
