Easy and informative. Never bought from you before but my neighbour had and was always pleased with whatever she had bought, so I decided to try your products for my new garden.
I have been very pleased.

I really enjoy the whole Sarah Raven experience! I love to receive the catalogue and to be able to refer to it in the evenings. Her Plants and bulbs have always been a great addition to my garden. I like all the advice that comes with every purchase. The latest order for naturalising bulbs, some of it has been delivered already and the others will arrive as directed!
