  1. Chrysanthemum Summer Festival

    By Virginia Pinder 14-09-2011

    My first time growing Summer Festival, after receiving a free packet. Brilliant show of flowers all summer and in to September, far prettier than the picture displays. Will be buying two packets next year. Would highly recomend
