Most plants were healthy and in good condition but Nigella were quite yellow. Surviving so far

Most of the order was of your usually high Standard which is quite something in these times, so well done! I especially like the reduced use of plastic for your cells.
Yet many of the -papaver-nudicaule-champagne-bubbles-white were not viable. This wasn’t due to the packaging but rather the quality of the seedlings which were damaged or simply dead.

Didn’t realise the Cosmos were the really tall ones, And we’ve had a really blowy season here. I’ve been staking like mad. The other 2 varieties have been great. Thanks. (Although also needed stakes!

Arrived in excellent condition, grew well, all good.

Was disappointed because the plants flowered at different times and there was very little time when all flowered together.

I had suspected this from previous gardening experience, but was sure ‘Sarah knows best’ so went with it despite having some doubts,but was thoroughly disappointed as was left with just cosmos from early on in the season

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

“Thank you for your review. we are sorry to hear of your disappointment with your collection and have refunded you for the seedlings. In our experience, with regular dead-heading these varieties will normally flower all summer but it may have been that the extreme heat of this summer shortened their flowering time.”

3 out of the 4 packets of seeds worked well however I was very disappointed with the white cosmos. Most of the plants I grew had no flowers. They grew very tall with no flowers so ended up pulling them up! Some flowered but I was disappointed.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

“Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that your Cosmos ‘Purity’ has failed to flower. We have left a note on your account , if you would like a replacement packet to try again please contact our Customer Services team.”
