Only about 6 of the seeds have germinated. Since some have I cannot tell whether it is me or the seeds! They have been kept moist and at the moment it's difficult NOT for them to be in a warm place. I ordered them because, though I had a virtually 100 per cent success rate with the apricot selection of seeds ordered earlier, there were not many seeds in that selection to start with and I generally supply my mother with plants as well as my garden and allotment.

Despite fresh compost and fertiliser the plants didn't grow as bushy as I'd hoped, the colour was good though.

Great quality and long lasting. I have some of Sarah’s wallflowers from several years ago which self seeded and continue to flower each year.

They were nice but were the wrong colour - a sort of dusty yellow/ochre. It was a pretty, muted colour (not shrill lemony yellow) and the flowers lasted well but I was sorry they weren’t the colours they were advertised as being.
