The pelargonium has done well but the Ipomoea has been disappointing as it has taken ages to flower and they disappear after a day or so. It is in a sunny east facing Yorkshire windowbox so perhaps it would prefer different conditions? I had to fill it up with another verbena to bulk it out.

Germination was excellant ,pelargonium flowering well but Ipomea very poor possibly due to weather conditions
