Hmmm. I grow mine on in veg patch where they do add a lot of growth in short time. They then are moved into the garden at any time over the next few weeks with good chunk of soil so they do not know they have been moved.
Because mine get quite large they are not then planted in groups...they hold their own as specimen plants....prob 2 to 3 feet high and across. So in that sense they are good value. I paid about £3 for 10 too. However. I have also bought some as named colours and these are planted in groups of 3......have orange, yellow and red.....to make a real impact. All are pinched out to prevent flowering and to increase bushyness.
