reasonable quality plants when arrived but not as healthy as last year, good flowers long stems don't last long before they go short.

Reviewed 8th August 2019 by Ms Rawnsley

These seedlings initially flourished & produced good flowers.
I planted them in 4 very large deep pots, then they started to wilt,I contacted your customer services for advise. They suggested I used tepid water rather than cold water from the hose( I had planted them sufficiently apart & fed them regularly.)
However I have now put the contents of the last pot in the rubbish
Heartbreaking after all the blurb in your catalogue, no more sweet peas or products from S Raven

Customer service and packaging excellent but hardly any flowers. I bought some cheap sweet pea plants, not in good condition, from our local market and they’re flowering profusely.

This is the second year I have bought these seedlings & have not been disappointed. They are so good I have been able to give bunches of them to friends which is pure joy. Will be buying them again.

The Sweet Peas were ok but disappointed with the lack of fragrance and not as long lasting as I had hoped for.

Reviewed 31st July 2019 by Elizabeth

The service was great but I’m totally disappointed with the sweet peas. The only reason I brought these as they were advertised as extra long stems. Stems are no more than an inch long. Along with other disappointed purchases I will not be purchasing again from Sarah Raven.
