All flowers grew and came out well in time for a wedding in July. The only thing I have to report is that the Cosmos grew taller than the other plants in the trough.

I had this selection a year ago and I think they were successful. However this year I was disappointed as the cosmos completely dominated the pots growing very tall and vigorously and the other plants struggled to come into their own.

All bar one of the cosmos in the white pot collection turned out to be pink! Looked pretty but not what I ordered.

Disappointed with the cosmos. Only one plant survived and is only just flowering.

My favourite online plant & garden store! Seedlings and plants arrive healthy and strong, and thrive. Lots of compliments for our 6 long window boxes and 5 pavement planters over last couple of years. I will be buying from Sarah Raven next year! Thank you for great service

This pot collection is lovely. I agree the cosmos is the largest bit of it by far, but the smaller ones underneath look lovely too. It's a beautiful collection all together and would buy it again. Believe it or not, this is the first time I have grown Cosmos. I can't believe I left it so long! It's standing up well to all the rain and I love it!

Disappointed

The cosmos have overwhelmed the phlox and the osteosperum in spite of not feeding at all. They still have to flower but would not order again as would look for a smaller cosmos. It's a shame that the photo slightly misrepresents this collection

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your feedback.

We are sorry to hear that the cosmos have overshadowed the other plants, what a shame. The collection normally works very well together and the variety in heights normally complement each other. Pinching out the cosmos at an early stage will also ensure that the growth is more bushier and controlled.

This collection looked ever so appealing in the picture, I bought it May, unfortunately there are still absolutely no flowers on the cosmos. here were a few on the Osteospernum which have now faded and no new ones. There are some on the phlox. Why is this? So disappointed.

Unfortunately the cosmos have totally overshadowed the phlox and osteosphermum. I think a smaller cosmos would have been better i.e. Xanthos - although not completely white it would have blended really well with the other two plants.

The collection normally works very well together and the variety in heights normally complement each other. We will record this feedback for future planning, if you have been feeding the plants then it might be best to hold off for a while in case it is encouraging the cosmos to grow. Pinching out the cosmos at an early stage will also ensure that the growth is more bushier and controlled."

Reviewed 14th March 2015 by Mrs Alison Kempster

The photograph implies the relative sizes of the plants. This is not how it happened! I now assume cutting back the more vigorous osteospermum and cosmos is necessary to achieve that balance.

It is now March 2015 and the oesteospermum in this collection have flowered continuously since the collection was planted last spring! I planted up two 32cm blue-glazed terracotta pots with two 9-plant collections and the display was stunning over the whole summer and autumn, looking good until October. Every visitor to our apartment commented on how stylish they looked on the balcony! The cosmos 'Sonata White' was the main attraction with its prolific saucers staring wide-eyed at you with their yellow irises but the whole effect was necessary. I now definitely recommend staking this collection and keeping the oestospermum in check.

The phlox were the least successful - though that is being unkind - as they were bulllied out of the way by the cosmos and osteospermum, particularly suffering from not being adequately staked, flopping wildly. They lasted until October, nevertheless.

The cosmos were a huge success even after mildrew arrived in September (probably my fault: watering may have been incorrect; fed every fortnight with high-potash liquid feed and I do not spray). I eventually cut them down in late October/November.

The osteospermum have survived, unpruned, though leggy now, flowering continuously through the winter, though the flowers often failed to open completely in the cold. They are too leggy to keep unless I had the space to cut them back and replant elsewhere, as I'm going to try the pelargonium and convolvulus collection this year - and need to find somewhere to put more cosmos 'Sonata' as after this display, I cannot do without it!

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you very much for your review, and yes, the cosmos and osteospermum will flower for a very long time with regular deadheading."

Planted quickly, but cosmos seedlings died after few days. More were sent gratis - these too died (my cosmos grown from seed are always great!). Phlox was very feeble. Only osteospermum fairly OK - some action in Oct/Nov. Am not inexperience gardener, but will NEVER buy seedlings again.

If it were possible to award 10 Stars, I would! . It is now mid Sept. And the show of flowers is quite exceptional, as it has since mid. June. I would most strongly recommend this lovely collection.
