Reviewed 11th October 2018 by Lynne

All plants potted up straightaway, kept inside until warm enough to go in greenhouse. 3 plants transplanted outside in well cultivated garden in full sun. Barely average. The remaining 2 plants were not good at all. Growing tomatoes for years, these were disappointing. Stopped at 3 and 4 trusses. East of England so very long and warm summer. Well watered and created a reservoir. All tomatoes tasted lovely just not enough!

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for leaving your review. We are very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your Tomatoes and have refunded you for them."
