I have credit with Sarah Raven, how can I spend it?

Any credit you have with Sarah Raven (eg from a refund) will be set up on our order system, so cannot be accessed via your online account and cannot be used for an online order. The credit can be used on orders placed by phone or post.

To spend your credit, please contact our Customer Services team, and we will process the order for you, informing you of any additional payment required.

How will my order be delivered and when will I receive it?

Orders are sent out by post (Royal Mail 2nd Class) or courier (72hr service) and are despatched as quickly as possible. We aim to despatch orders within 2-3 working days, with the exception of plants and bulbs, which will be despatched at the best time for planting.

We tend to be extremely busy in peak seasons (spring/early summer: March-May, and autumn: September-October) and during sales, when it may take up to a week to despatch orders (up to 2-3 weeks for plant orders).

For further information on delivery, please visit our Delivery Pages or email

What if I am not in when you try to deliver?

When ordering by phone or post please let us know if you are likely to be out when the order is delivered, so we can add relevant delivery instructions to the order. If you are ordering online, please add any delivery instructions when directed at checkout.

If you will be on holiday when your delivery is due, please contact us and we will advise you further.

Where is my bulb order?

Bulbs which will be despatched at the best time for planting (see our delivery information page). We tend to be extremely busy in peak seasons, when it may take up to 2-3 weeks for plant/bulb order to be despatched.

Please be advised that once we have reached the advertised time for despatching bulbs e.g. from late September (as advertised in our catalogues and online), that we are then despatching orders in turn, as quickly as we can and that it could take 2-3 weeks to despatch your bulb order.

Please note, that even if an item shows as 'In Stock', you may still have to wait to receive your order.

Also, we send out all our orders in the order in which they were placed, ie. first come, first served.

Does Sarah Raven deliver outside the UK?

We are able to deliver seed only orders to European Union (EU) countries at a cost of £6.95 per order (please note this does not include Seed Tin Collections which we are unable to despatch overseas). We are not able to send hardware, live plants or bulbs outside the UK.

At present, seeds can only be sent inside the EU. We suggest that, where possible, you source your seeds locally or order for delivery to a friend or relative in the UK.

For more information, please see our Delivery page.

Do I need to pay multiple postage costs for each despatch?

No, you will pay one postage charge of £4.95 for standard orders or £2.50 for seed only orders. This is incorporated in the grand total that is paid at the time of order, and there will not be any additional charges if your order is sent out in multiple despatches.

For more information, please see our Delivery page.

What do I need to do if I wish to return an item?

Please follow the correct procedure for the following items:

Hardware: Please return any items within 28 days of receiving your order, unused and in their original packaging, for a refund or exchange. It is not necessary to call us – simply download and complete the Returns Form (.pdf), enclose it in your parcel, and use the pre-printed returns label. Don't forget to affix the correct postage to the package. We recommend that you obtain a certificate of posting from the Post Office for any returned items, as you are responsible for the good until they reach us. We will prompty exchange the item, or give you a full refund if preferred.

Plants, bulbs and seeds: Please do not return any of these items; simply contact us and we will replace or refunds as appropriate.

Will my plants be ok packaged up if they are delayed in transit?

Plants should be planted as soon as you receive them, following the planting instructions provided with your delivery. The plants should be ok in their packaging for a few days after despatch, although if you were out and they have been delivered to a sorting office, we would advise picking them up as soon as possible.

Corms, bulbs and dahlias will all be fine in their packaging for a little longer, so not as critical if they are delayed in transit, however they will still need planting up as soon as possible.

What size and heights will the plants/bulbs be sent out in?

To get an idea on the sizes that we send our plants/bulbs out in, please visit our Plant Sizes & Product Info page.

To find out the height of a plant, please see the individual product pages. 

Are Sarah Raven seeds genetically modified?

No, we do not stock genetically modified seed. If seed is organic, this will be mentioned in the product information.

Where else can I buy Sarah Raven products?

The shop at Perch Hill stocks various seed varieties, however they are restricted on the amount of varieties they can stock. If you were unable to purchase any varieties during a Perch Hill visit, please visit our website or contact our Customer Services team.
