More Details

A wonderful mix of colours from apricot to cafe-au-lait. Try planting it with tulips ‘La Belle Époque or ‘Apricot Beauty’.

Wallflowers are one of my favourite spring flowers, in the most wonderful rich colours, with one of the best-ever scents. They also make superb cut flowers. We should all grow more.

I was pleased to receive my plants well packed & in good health ready to be planted out. I like the fact that you include instructions for planting all your plants and bulbs.

All my seeds germinated and my plants are now out in the garden ready to give me early colour. No flowers yet (not expecting them at this time of year) but looking forward to them next year. I can write an update on how they look once they bloom if helpful. Will sow more later in the season following the success of the first batch.

Planted three of these in a large tub with Pale peony flowered tulips by the front door. They smelt gorgeous and looked gorgeous. Loved them

Grew into bushy plants which will probably produce another set of flowers next year.

These plants took a while to grow on from plugs and didn't flower for long so they lacked punch. Also, there were several orange plants and one purple one among all the apricot plants, which looked messy in a single colour planting. But by the time they had flowered, it was too late to remove them because I would have been left with too many gaps. So, altogether, a fairly disappointing purchase.

These arrived in fairly feeble form and despite attention and care they didn’t survive.

Delighted from start to finish. The plants received were strong and healthy, not at all resembling the tired dried up plants you see on sale everywhere! Great care and thought had been taken in packaging the plants so they arrived in pristine condition. .They filled out beautifully and flowered endlessly. I must have more this year!
