More Details

A nemesia with unusual colour tones that change from pink to violet, flowering long and hard all summer.

The colour variations depend on temperatures and UV exposure – the warmer and sunnier the weather, the bluer the flowers become. Early flowers may appear more pink, changing slowly as the season progresses. Deadhead and feed your plants regularly to encourage as long a flowering period as possible.

Not the colour as described, as the flowers were yellow and pink with a little pale blue. I queried this to be told the blue colour would appear once UV levels were high enough. Given the exceptional summer that was clearly not the problem. I would also have expected a refund or compensation - I felt fobbed off therefore disappointed with SR from whom I order regularly.

I was really pleased with both plants , the nemesia flowered right through until the end of october . The tarragon I brought in the sale ,and I planted them in a pot and had tarragon through the summer and autumn with some left over to make tarragon herb vinegar .

Not the most successful of my plants. As these have not done too well in past years I wonder if the soil is not right.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your review. Yes Nemesia likes fertile or neutral soil so perhaps that is why, it also helps to give them a liquid feed every couple of weeks through the Summer to encourage flowering."
