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.
