Reviewed 2nd August 2019 by Janet

There were two lots of three plants as ordered. All 6 arrived with short stalks and few leaves, all damaged. Their full grown height meant they were planted at the back of the bed where the remaining foliage was quickly stripped by slugs. We wish we had been advised they were prone to slug damage. It looks like we have lost all 6.

The initial delivefy contained only 2 out of 3 good plants. I was sent replacement but this one also died. Worse service I have ever received from you.

This plant arrived much later than the others so sat in the box for several days. I think partly due to this and us being away again and so not able to nurture the small plant, it died.

The plants are all growing well.. I’ve had to stake them, the flowers last a long time and there are plenty . Really pleased with the colours, shades of pale peach to strong orange.

The plants arrived in a very healthy state, they were well packaged and I was hopeful that they would do well, but a combination of poor weather conditions and perhaps the wrong choice of position on my part for the garden has meant that they have not succeeded and the top growth is now quite dead, I don't know if the roots have survived.
