I buy many plants by post and these were excellent quality. They were a really good size and did very well in the garden. Heliotrope was beautifully fragrant and both plants flowered well until the first frosts.

In flower all summer put them into a large circular ceramic pot which on reflection, may have looked more stunning in a grey large square

They have been brilliant blooming all summer in pots. I have tried to take cuttings and will have to wait to see if they make it through the winter.

Osteospermum were really good. I wasn't so impressed with thd heliotrope they were very fragile when they arrived and took a long while to get going

The Osteopermum were the only ones which were slightly disappointing and only flowered once, although they are having a bit of a repeat flower now. The others are all still flowering hard and have been wonderful. The Diamond Frost are always a bit temperamental to get going but are going well now.

Very strong healthy plants. They have flowered all summer and are still going strong. I know I will get healthy plugs, plants and bulbs from sarah raven.

The plants arrived in good condition. When large enough they were planted out in two big pots. One pot showed excellent colour early on, although the osteospermum became leggy later on. The other pot in the same area has only now in September come into bloom!
I appreciate that it has been a difficult summer weatherwise but the pots were watered equally, and none of the plants actually failed.
