Brilliant service from start to finish. And the seeds have preformed very well

Two batches of the seedlings in this collection were ok (a little smaller than I was expecting but potted on fine), the third were not anywhere near so far on (about the size of my smallest fingernail). One was too small even to pot on (and died).

Bit disappointing - I don't think I'll order seedlings from here again.

Communications about timings of delivery were good though and they did travel ok (although heavy on the plastic use which is an additional consideration).

The seedlings I ordered arrived very promptly and beautifully packaged. I can also confirm that they were excellent quality and made a beautiful addition to my white garden.

Reviewed 2nd September 2018 by Margaret

They have done well, almost too well as they have proved too tall for where I put them and the scabious flower so well that it is proving impossible to deadhead them. For that reason I don't think I would get that variety of scabious again, but I would consider the Ammi, that is if they haven't self seeded.

Keep on flowering!

I sowed these seeds late but yet still they came up and flowered and flowered all season - I didn't even need to dead-head - they look so pretty at the end of my garden. Will be buying again!
