    The plants were well packed and looked good when they arrived. I am looking forward to seeing the flowers in my little rockery. Sadly the slugs or snails demolished this in one night so I’m hoping it will recover. Needs protection from these pests!

    Not in flower but looks ready to once the growing season starts up again.
