Reviewed 25th September 2018 by Jennifer

The purple tomatoes grew well but tasted just awful and so were inedible despite a lot of time and trouble. The kale and the brocolli just didn't do anything that was edible. The butternut squash and the beetroot were a complete success though. So for me this collection was an expensive way to gain a few squash and some beetroot because the tomatoes, kale and broccoli failed.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your review, we are very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your tomatoes, kale and broccoli and have refunded you for these ."
