First batch were broken, but a new batch was sent. The seedlings were a bit fragile and took a while to settle into the garden.

When they arrived they were very small and fragile although have developed well but not quite as well as I hoped.

Cosmos arrived healthy and in good time. The flowers themselves are blooming well the blooms are a bit smaller than my other cosmos and not as vibrant a pink as the website photos suggest. They are nice but I would choose a different Cosmo next time.

I email your customer services on 15th July stating my disappointment with these plants as follows "Order No SRW1214851. In connection with the Cosmos 'Xsenia' which were supplied to me on the above order, I would like to place on record my disappointment that these plants seem to be very 'weak' and the majority of the leaves have turned brown. I had expected the flowers to be smaller than those on other Cosmos but they are certainly very underwhelming. I will need to pull them up and replace them with something else. I have been very pleased with plants and bulbs I have purchased from Sarah Raven in the past. " As yet I have received no acknowledgement to that email.
