Hi, I was about to order a selection of bulbs and plants from Sarah Raven in particular, tulips, allium, crocus & Asters. However I have just read the reviews. Allowing for covid they are still not good. Has anyone used them or has recommendations please for quality reasonably priced bulbs. Many thanks.

For the best value/price ratio, i would recommend Peter Nyssen (www.peternyssen.com) - they don't (need to) advertise anywhere - I've always been very pleased with their goods.
Another site I've found which I will try next year for dahlias is Riverside Bulbs (www.riversidebulbs.co.uk) - they also do tulips, seems good value but don't have personal experience with them.
I've bought lily and acidanthera bulbs from B & M, and they were not too good for the first couple of years. I felt sorry for them, and left them in their pots anyway - and this year they've been absolutely fantabulous! I guess the bulbs were so cheap because they were small.
Crocus.co.uk are very good, but not cheap.
