These seedlings grew very quickly and vigorously. Potentially even a little bit much so as they started to look a bit wild! The bees loved them and I was a little disappointed I didn't get any further flowers after the first flush so the pot didn't look very attractive once they had finished flowering, however that could possibly be down to the heat. I am going to attempt to over winter them and see how they perform next summer.

Very disappointing. Healthy plants grown on in my greenhouse. Planted out in large terracotta pots to line my drive but no sign of a single flower and it is now July. No sign of the plants trailing either!

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your comments. We're sorry to hear it hasn't flowered yet, however as it's the beginning of the season we hope you'll see a good display right up until the start of winter. If you bring this in and overwinter it, it should give you a much improved display earlier next year."
