Unfortunately this plant didn’t do as well as I had hoped and sadly died off.

These plants have struggled, very prone to slug and snail attack. Hoping they do better next year when they are tougher

Hi, The last two plants I bought I must say was not up two your high standard other wise I would have given five stars.

Was looking forward to this giving a bit of height to the boarder. It never came up so really can’t give it a good review. Disappointed with this purchase, shame as Sarah Raven plants are usually so dependable.
