More Details

One by one, we’ve fallen for the geums, from the towering orange ’Totally Tangerine’ to the soft café-au-lait ‘Mai Tai’. We’re not the only ones, with their long-flowering season and pretty ’face’ flowers, they’re hugely popular, with new ones emerging onto the market every year. This is the latest ruffled, gypsy skirt entry to the family, more compact and just as flowery, ideal for table centre pots or window boxes.

Having never ordered online before, this year’s self-isolation has pushed me into trying it. I’ve used three different websites and Sarah Raven’s is the very best I’ve found. Excellent quality of seedlings, very well packaged, and arrived in very good condition. All have been planted out successfully and I’m looking forward to their blooming later in the year. Packeted seeds are yet to germinate, but everything arrives with comprehensive planting instructions. I was kept up to date with all the deliveries and will certainly be using this excellent quality site again in the future, having already recommended it to my (dearly missed) friends and family. The best - gold stars all round ⭐️
Thank you.

I wonder if you have changed your suppliers as the quality of your plants is far superior to some received in the past years. My only disappointment is my Orlaya grandiflora seeds did not germinate at all. I have previously grown them without a problem

Healthy young plants, and full of flower buds - consistent with the exceptional quality I’ve experienced on the vast majority of my Sarah Raven purchases. Thank you, Sarah and team!

The other geums I bought from Sarah Raven have performed so well. I thought I would try this new one. Typical of SR to have something new and unusual. However, I will not receive the plants until late February, so your request for a review is a little premature.
