The colours of this collection are magnificent! The germination was overall good and the growth of the plants was strong, in fact they are still full of colour at the end of September. I shall definitely buy these again.

Hi
I haven't bought or received this collection, so I think this is a mistake? I checked my account and no money has gone out.

These seeds were posted promptly, perfectly packaged and enticing. The germination rate was good and the variety grew into strong plants. They have been great colours as advertised.

Good germination and lovely colours. Flowers last well when cut. Downside is that these seeds were expensive for just 40 seeds.

Amazing mix of colours - I never knew that antirrhinums came in so many different shades.

The sunflowers did very well and we had a good rate of germination. The Antirrhinum on the other hand were slow to germinate and then we only got about 6 plants.

The germination and growing of the plants was successful. I didnt get much variety within the colour range as indicated on the description but they have been very bright throughout thr season

Excellent germination, but the plants came into there own in this unusual hot summer and are still flowing well. Beautiful strong plants, very impressed.

Service always first class

The flowers were a gorgeous mix of pinks, oranges and reds. However I found the germination poor and ended up with only about a dozen plants.

Slow to start but when they got going made a fantastic show and are still blooming. Will buy again.

Good germination , good colours and flowered well in a difficult year. We found the vase life disappointing.

Dissapointing antirrhinums

Ordered this collection in may.... seemed to take ages for them to be delivered. Was surprised at how small they were, one of them hadn't travelled too well. I planted them up immediately and am still waiting. Three of the six are finally showing signs of flowering, but do not look very strong, the other three look very sad and weedy. Not impressed when you see the size of antirrhinums in the garden centres now.
