Reviewed 13th April 2018 by Gail Bradford

Wallflowers arrived in perfect condition.

Planted under my bedroom window looking forward to the scent that would arise in due course, plus some in a planter
Checked at weekend, they looked a bit sad so watered
checked today - they have been absolutely decimated by snails
should I dig up and plant somewhere safe hoping they revive?
have an order for lupins waiting in my basket but not sure if i dare place the order - will it just be a gourmet meal for these slimy pests!!!
I would give more stars for service and condition but have no idea if they would deliver on colour and fragrance!

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for taking time to review our site. we are very sorry to hear that your wallflowers have been attacked by snails. it may be worht moving them and replanting with some slug/snail prevention in place and hopefully you can still enjoy their scent later this spring. We would also strongly recomend protecting your lupins- here is the link to our slug/snail prevention products which may be of interest to you- https://www.sarahraven.com/gardening_kit/plant_protection_pests.
