Dear Barry

Nice to have you on the forum! Your problem might be a fungus (Botrytis?) attacking the flowers. Under my conditions I don't have this problem and the flowers last longer than one week. Perhaps you should try to keep the air humidity lower if you grow them in a greenhouse (especially during night) and use a fan. If you grow them outside, protect the plants from rain during their flowering phase (perhaps the weather in London is too wet?). You can also try to put them in a sunnier location. 'Ulla Silkens' can withstand pretty much sun due to the hairy leaves.

I hope this helps
