All seeds germinated but all seedlings were weak and all failed.

Good strong plants, good germination rate, not planted in final position as yet so no flowers.

These plants performed exactly as described in the catalogue - absolutely our "best buy" this year, still looking good in the middle of November. We took the advice of brining indoors the central flower to encourage more side growth. Beautiful, cannot recommend highly enough.

Reviewed 16th September 2016 by Mandy Stevenson Smyth

This is a bit of a mystery. First the positives: Very easy to germinate, grew well in to nice strong looking little plants and all looked very promising. I planted them out, kept an eye and waited for them to grow to the expected height - which they did not and when they flowered, they were decidedly apricot in colour. Lovely, but not what I expected!
