Very pleased with condition and packaging of plants on arrival but was very disappointed to find the flowers were a deep pink instead of ones I had seen at RHS Harlow Carr which were lavender/lilac in colour. I was pleased that you were kind enough to refund me on my purchase. I have to say that a similar thing happened with a previous purchase of gladioli corms and would be a little reluctant to order again but maybe third time lucky!

Don't be fooled by the pic or the name. This is not lilac coloured and does not fit my colour scheme of blues/purples (it's definitely pink). It will have to be moved unfortunately.
It is though a plant which survived the recent heat and the patchy watering it has received.
