I am a novice gardener! I have no green house in which to nurture plants to fruition! But I can honestly say I buy all Sarah Raven plants with confidence knowing they are strong and healthy enough to survive. And give me growing pleasure.

Purchased in 2017 and I am very happy with this purchase. I have plants in large pots by the front door porch which although sheltered from the winter cold is open to the elements. As I write in June 2018 the plants are full of flower, such a beautiful colour. Jeff (Hampshire coast).
