Just starting to flower now after March sowing. Slugs loved them so lost a few but what are left are lovely colours and a papery texture. Will sow more next year as will be good for cutting.

Service from Sarah raven is always excellent, but I was very disappointed in these seeds, three sowings , and not a single one germinated. Won’t buy again
