Flowering on and off for over six months, with great chiffon cup flowers which last well once cut. I absolutely love it. These can be tricky to get to planting-out stage, so let us do that for you.

2 of 5 survived - this was 2nd delivery of same order of which all 5 failed. Less than 3rd of allium plants survived but tulip bulbs in pots were good. So underimpressed I’m afraid we have unsubscribed the site. That doesn’t appeared to have worked either. We were very disappointed.

Very poor seed success, a couple popped up but then vanished. I won’t be purchasing these again.

They arrived well-packaged but never took! Even my dahlias tuber never sprouted, and I normally have quite good luck with them. Gutted because I was really looking forward to having Icelandic poppies this year (and because they were quite expensive).

Only one plant produced flowers, very little growth. Very disappointing. Had a tray of plants from the market that were fabulous and flowered all summer so it wasn’t that they were not watered. I will not be buying from you again.

disappointed with these as they have not flowered as well as expected. Seedlings were healthy enough but won't bother with these again, perhaps it was me!

The plants themselves have been excellent and very colourful all summer (they are still flowering). However, they arrived all too promptly and inconveniently just as we were leaving on holiday. It would have been good if there was an obvious date customers could select for delivery. I didn't notice that option when ordering. I had to work very hard with them on return from holiday to restore them ready for planting out.

Unfortunately they gave a very poor showing - only about two thrived and the blooms were sparse.

Great colours, but they suffered in the hot, dry summer. Not as many flowers as I'd expected but maybe I should have watered them more.

Bought Papaver, Eccremocarpus Scaber, the Seville collection planted them together with bronze fennel and deep purple salvia then sprinkled the Sarah Raven cottage garden mix through in my front garden and have been overwhelmed by the response of passers by and neighbours. Even had 3 people taking photos which has never happened before!
Needless to say I am delighted as the plants are strong, healthy and very colourful and still flowering which is just what I wanted. A success.

What a joy these have been - never seen so many flowers from individual seedlings. They have made a wonderful show and every time I have walked past them, they have brought a smile to my face. Will definitely buy more for next year, to plant in other areas of the garden.

Beautiful flowers

I'm so happy with my order of Champagne Bubbles jumbo seedlings. The whole process of choosing the plants through to having them delivered was great. The plants were packaged very well and in excellent health. In less than a month they are beginning to flower, with a few orange and a white one bloomed today. As a bit of an experiment, I have planted some into my garden that has heavy clay, and also some in a large pot. I should have bought more as they are definitely happy flowers that make you smile.

Thank you Sarah Raven team for bringing us flower joy :-)
