My cosmos were the loveliest and tallest of all my friends...and I'm not a very good gardener! We had a family wedding in our garden and they added to the joy. I'll be ordering even more next year.

Massive ferny foliage and very few flowers all summer. Some white flowers now but really a disappointment for bedding purposes. I obviously chose the wrong type of plant and did not recognise the ferny fronds compared to the dark variety with more flowers answer leaves.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for leaving your review. We are very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your Pale Cosmos Collection and have refunded you for them."
