Reviewed 20th August 2017 by Claire Wright

I don't know which was gave me more pleasure - the summer 'holiday' in Sussex, or coming back to these flowers in full bloom! This is the first time I've succeeded at 'wild' flower meadow planting. Bought rather a lot of proper, non-saline gardeners sand to plant them in, which was the trick here I think. They are at their best just now (20th August), and there seems to be more colours and loveliness than in the picture here! I'll be doing the same x4 next year! I would have liked there to be a few more toadflax, but maybe mine just didn't come through so much as all the other flowers. (I did actually buy some toadflax seeds from here separately, but managed to mislay them! grr)
