Customer services very accommodating in delaying the delivery.
Plants extremely well packaged and in perfect condition. They are still flowering (second week in November).

Very poor value for money I'm afraid. The fuchsia was a rather small specimen for the cost. Disappointed.

I ordered this plant Fuschia Hawkshead and instead was sent a different Fuschia. I informed Sarah raven and they sent out another Fuschia which was indeed Hawkshead. However it was a weedy looking plant and eventually died. Not impressed!
