I have loved all the purchases except one, which was a very floppy allium. I have pulled out the leaves because I don't want it coming back next year.
I will certainly shop with you again as the plants have been really lovely and leagues ahead of the ordinary plants and bulbs on sale. So well done all of you …. and no more floppy alliums!!!!

would have been helpful to have known which bulbs were white and which were purple, but would buy them again.

Service and delivery were fine. The product looked beautiful in the catalogue. I planted the bulbs as directed but the flowers produced were very disappointing.

Just received my allium bulbs to plant this autumn, the quality looks very good, healthy looking, large plump bulbs in very good condition, very good value and excellent packaging and delivery, I am very impressed with all of Sarah Raven's products so far and the packaging for live plants knocks spots of the other companies, sometimes you get plants and they look like they've been dragged through a hedge backwards! But not with Sarah's products
