Reviewed 2nd September 2018 by Margaret

They have done well, almost too well as they have proved too tall for where I put them and the scabious flower so well that it is proving impossible to deadhead them. For that reason I don't think I would get that variety of scabious again, but I would consider the Ammi, that is if they haven't self seeded.

Keep on flowering!

I sowed these seeds late but yet still they came up and flowered and flowered all season - I didn't even need to dead-head - they look so pretty at the end of my garden. Will be buying again!
