Very good germination so actually had too many of them. Habit was a bit untidy so had to pull quite a few out as they went a bit mad.

My garden has never looked lovelier than it has done this year and that have been due entirely to the plants I've bought from Sarah Raven. All of which have performed amazingly so thank you so much.

A must have for containers or hanging baskets.

Such a lovely hanging basket plant, the colour is a beautiful coral Matt shade, the flowers just keep on coming I'm definetly going to look for it next year and buy more.
