As you may be aware we have struggled to meet our normal customer service standards following the short notice move of our packing area. Despite the best efforts of our small team over the last few weeks, we are simply unable to recover from this devastating move fast enough.
We have thus made the decision to stop trading.
If you have an order outstanding, please refer to your credit card company or PayPal who will arrange a refund.
Celosia caracas, also called the Cockscomb plant because of its flowers, shaped like an upright fluffy plume and brilliant purple-pink in colour. They appear in mid-summer above clumps of oval green leaves, and remain until mid-autumn. The cut flowers can be dried for use as long-lasting flower arrangements.
Celosia caracas is a half-hardy annual. It needs a site in full sun, and will cope with most soil types provided they are well drained.
