The seedlings arrived healthy, well packed and in good condition.
Since planting they went from strength to strength and have flowered profusely all the summer and appeared to like the hot weather (with regular watering). They are still flowering and the plants are tall and sturdy. I have decided to buy these again as despite a lot of effort on my part, I don’t appear to grow such successful plants.

I was pleased with the swellings when they arrived, well packed and in good condition. They were potted on but had to wait a long while for any flowers, so didn't quite get the display hoped for, maybe due to the hot weather. Also scented geraniums have hardly flowered, 3 in a big pot, also pelargonium Lord Bute didn't grow well, only flowered in the last 6 weeks.

The cosmos grew too large and woody. Poor flowering. Didn’t look great in pots. Wont get them again.

This has been a lovely collection. The flowers have been delicate and prolific all summer. As I said in my review for the Cosmos and Nicotiana Collection it would be great if Sarah could add a bit in her video about how to pinch out Cosmos plants so they don't get too tall as mine have got quite tall (needing tall canes) and bushy - please don't assume we all know which bits to pinch - but despite my lack of pinching out they have flowered wonderfully and been a delight all summer and still have flowers now in first week of October. Very simple to grow on and plant out in both beds and pots. Dead heading is easy once you have watched Sarah's helpful video. A rewarding plant for the newby gardener. I would definitely buy this collection again.
