The plants came in fairly good order, but only two survived. I had a replacement but that was not delivered in good order as it was half out of the container and I tried to revive it by planting in a pot with plenty of compost and kept tan eye on it, but it just withered and eventually died. Not a very good purchase.

The plants arrived very late ie end of June and are a disappointing selection
