Reviewed 12th October 2016 by Andrew Devenport

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
