A bit long winded here but bare with me. So this is a review I meant to do last year but forgot until it was time for me to reorder this year I had never tried surfinias before, in fact I was unaware of their size and trailing ability until I saw a picture of them somewhere. So I used Brookside for the first time and you did not disappoint. I received 84 Surfinia Hot Pinks and paid £45 then. I see the price has gone up a tad but its probably less than the rate of inflation so very acceptable. I keep a record of all garden purchases on a spread sheet so I know what I had paid back then plus I add a comment on the results of growth. I can only applaud you for the way they were packaged and every plug plant came on. Yes I had to use my rather large polytunnel to protect them from a few surprise frosts but that is not unusual for most gardeners. When the weather warmed up they were then re-potted into 9" pots, left out and I had the enjoyment of seeing their growth. Many went into hanging baskets and I wish I could post up a picture here because they were the most astonishing displays I have ever had. Neighbours commented so much it became embarrasing. And they just flowered on way into autumn. O.K. a tad of miracle grow always helps and I did deadhead a few times. But yes.. one very happy gardener here and thank you Brookside!. Now I should add that my regular supplier in Jersey was taken over by another company and to say they had teething problems with deliveries would be an understatement plus they vastly increased their prices. So Brookside you now haver a customer who will be ordering some other plants from you now!. Don't let me down now and I will naturally review them too. But based on what I have received before and the numerous positive reviews from others I doubt I have anything to fear. My compliments to your staff and keep up the great work and .. roll on Spring! If you want me to send pics of my hanging basket surfinias then let me know how I can do so. For now.. a very worthy 5 stars! John in Gloucester
