The phlox in the oast garden at Perch Hill fill the whole place with that extraordinary rich and delicious scent. I love their flowers, I love their colours and I love their perfume. This spring, I'm planting more.

Got these plants last Autumn, were in very good condition on arrival. They bloomed this year, quite a long lasting flower, and the white brightens up a shady corner.
Pleased with them.

One of the plants is looking very healthy the other two I am hoping will thicken given time. Unfortunately none of the plants have flowered and I cannot find any buds at the stage. Fingers crossed it will happen soon.

A bit leggy but that may have been my fault for not pinching the tops( only found out about doing that to make them bushier recently) otherwise lovely scent and flourishing

The first plants to arrive were rather sickly looking but replacements were sent. These are now settling down reasonably well.

Good strong plants flowering now, just needed staking against the thunderstorms!

The plant arrived badly packed and loose from its soil.
I potted it and watered it but it died shortly after.
I have had other failures due to poor packaging and poor rates of success, two years running, with garlic.
I shall not be purchasing from you again and do not want any further communication from you.

I am writing not about the phlox but generally. I have used Sarah Raven for six years at least . I have had tomatoes & & Cosmos totally the wrong varieties sent . The phlox were very small As my neighbor and I were growing flowers for her wedding bright pink Cosmos were a disaster.
