The colours were not as nice or varied as in the brochure. The green ones were the best. Two plants died off shortly after starting to flower. They did last well in a vase. They arrived in very good condition.

JUST ABSOLUTELY THRILLED WITH THESE ZINNIAS - still going strong - they have been a wonderful border filler throughout the last 2 months - everyone has commented on them. Thanks for the introduction - I will certainly grow them again next year. The lime green one is a fav.

For some reason these plants didn't thrive. I know there was a lot of extreme heat, but the cosmos, planted at the same time, was absolutely stunning.

These arrived much earlier than promised and struggled to survive. I was not able to be around all the time after I potted them up so due to the very hot weather they died.

These arrived in good condition but did not survive well
It was probably my fault and a consequence of such a hot summer
I did water them frequently but know that zinnias I grow myself from seeds are not easy to grow or predict
