I was most disappointed in these plants - lanky and floppy and they need staking. I am a great fan of Bowles Mauve, a bulky plane which flowers for 9 months of the year and I hoped this orange one would be as good.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you so much for your comments. We're confident that the wallflower plants we sent out this autumn were strong, and it is our expectation that they should look this way at this time of year. However, next spring they should provide the amazing display you anticipate.

If you have any further problems, please do let us know by getting in touch with our Customer Service team, who will happily arrange a replacement for you, if you so wish."
