Good service, lovely plants - I was using them in vases well into November when there was little else available.

I am afraid I was disappointed with these plants. I did not realise how vigorous they would be. I put them in large containers with other plants, but had to remove them and put them in separate 8 inch pots.

The flowers are exquisite, just like the photograph, but they flowered inconsistently and were flowerless for weeks at a time. Paradoxically they are covered in buds at the moment.

They look good now with the addition of slug deterrent wool pellets and more water.

Plants were mostly in good condition on arrival but some side stems including one in flower were broken off.
