I am sorry to say these have been a great disappointment. The seedlings arrived as predicted and were opened immediately.All the seedlings were limp and leggy. 1 box of 5 were already blackened. I immediately potted them on as instructed using a quality compost mixed with a little grit and sprayed them lightly with water. I also rang querying their condition. . I was sent, gratis, 10 replacements which at the time I thought generous as only 5 were clearly dead. However one by one several others died.
At the beginning of June the replacements arrived. These looked healthier with shorter, bushier growth. However, despite my best efforts, these too began to die. Of my 30 plants, 8 are now alive, flowering and looking very pretty. I am an experienced gardener and reasonably competent and have not normally had problems with plug plants. Incidently, of my 3 courgette plants, only 1 is now alive and productive.
I have bought from Sarh Raven for some years and this has been the worst experience.

They didn't survive. They weren't particularly healthy when I received them and once potted on they just didn't take.

Second year of filling window boxes and baskets with this alone, alongside pots of blue agapanthus. What a sight. Gorgeous and so cheap.

These have never thrived, despite being looked after and planted in good compost. They are gradually dying and when I pull out the plants, the roots are still confined to the original rootball and have never grown out into surrounding compost. Very disappointing.

The plants arrived well packed and healthy but have not performed well in my garden. The plants are floppy and the colours more washed out than I expected. The weather may not have helped, but I am disappointed

Such a pretty display. They have grown strongly, except for the one or two I put in the flower bed, which the slugs and snails enjoyed. I will buy them again next year.

Disappointing and not as long lasting (despite watering and being carefully cared for) as advertised. Also two of the plants turned out to be something quite different.
