Very disapointed......

Ordered 3 plants in time for spring planting & very excited when they arrived as I love these little daisies.....hardly any flowers & nothing I could do seem to chivvy them along. Plants I bought previously are still flowering well - one was bought two years ago & no trouble :(

Disappointing this year

I buy these as plugs every year. My favourite. But this year they have all been very disappointing. They look healthy but have not grown as they should despite the care and attention I have given them as usual :(

Patience is a virtue...!

Bought a pack of seeds last year and scattered them, in May, over the area I wanted them to grow. They started off well. We went away on holiday and when we came back, the seedlings had not been watered and they didn't appear to survive, so no flowers last year. However....... this year, the area is covered with beautiful little white and pink flowers. Absolutely delighted! Will be buying more seeds to put in other parts of the garden.

Unfortunately did not germinate

I bought fifteen seedlings and as much as I was looking forward to seeing them bloom unfortunately all died within a week of planting them,first experience of my purchase from Sarah Raven not growing .......I am assuming I was just unlucky with this particular batch. However this has not put me off from buying as everything else over the past few years have grown .

This winter was too harsh for them

I had a fabulous display of them last year but only tow plants survived the winter. I'm hoping they'll survive and thrive but it seems a big ask to hope they'll replace the ones I've lost!

Very easy to germinate

So many germinated that I wasn't quite sure where to put them all. My garden is now covered in these little delicate flowers on quite robust structures.

white, no pink in sight

The plants arrived in good condition and have been quick to take and grow, but mine are all white - so just like daisies - with no hint of the pink which I was looking forward to. Not sure if this will come. but at the moment am a bit disappointed

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your feedback. The flowers tend to open white initially and then go on to turn a pinkish-purple colour as the flower matures, if this doesn't happen and you would like further advice please contact our customer service team on 0345 092 0283 or by email at info@sarahraven.com"

This is easy and quick to grow - in no time I had a tumbling mass of flowers that last right through to December.
