There is nothing not to like about 'gardens4you.ie'. The plants were so fresh looking. The service was fast. The packing really impressed me as they not only had such a strong box, but it was divided so as to protect the more fragile plants.On top of this the prices were great, but something that I really, really appreciated (because I am a bit of a novice on plants & don't know one from another ) was the fact that for each plant that I had purchased, they enclosed a sheet explaining exactly how to plant each item along with a photo so that I knew which was which.Before I got my parcel I was thinking that I would have to go back on the website to see which plant was which and what to do with it, but this page saved me all of that bother, so I was delighted to find this sheet enclosed.I definitely give this company full marks all round and am saving up to buy some more plants.

In a nutshell: two out of four plants I received were diseased (the other two are in quarantine waiting to see if they are also diseased) and customer service was rude and argumentive when I tried to ask for my money back (which I did after I had to threaten legal action and lateral flow tests to prove the diseased status of the plants, why is it always a battle?). The customer service in question replied from the UK, the plants came from the Netherlands, I ordered from gardens4you (dot) ie. To get a response from The UK was bizarre as it's through an IE website and I will certainly be reporting gardens4you for using an IE website to "weare" (dot) ie and the relevant authorities for abusing Irish internet infrastructure and cyberspace. I am also calling out the nursery (ies?) in the Netherlands for their obvious poor care of plants and the many holes in gardens4you in general's Standard Operating Procedures and Policies I can immediately digress from my experience. I tried to bring this to their attention and resolve the dispute quietly but after the experience with the UK customer service and no response from Melvin Jansen who I tried to contact I am now bringing this to the public's attention. Save your money DO NOT buy with Gardens4you, buy local or nationally (most local/national stores are happy to order more exotic plants for you), and support the Irish economy. We as an Irish customer base deserve better than the poor service from the Netherlands and rude customer service from The UK.

I ordered geraniums and I received a dead brown floppy plant. When contacting the customer service about it, they were unwilling to replace the plant or refund me.

As informed Geranium are summer plants when you order them end of October beginning of November the plant do non longer exist at the level of the ground which is normal for plants cultivated in accordance with the seasons since our plants are cultivated outside all the year we do not sell plants cultivated under heated greenhouses. The roots are alive the plant will start its cycle again in mid-April it is important to plant it with complete soil and to protect the top of the soil with a mulch or dead leaves. Your comment is unfortunately untrue because you also asked for a full refund of the order which included 2 Gaultheria Procumbens, 1 aubrietia, 1 rhododendron and 1 geranium for a total amount of €45.50 including shipping. The fact that you don't know the plants is not a problem in itself we are here to provide you with all the explanations you need and our assistance. However, the fact of denigrating a company, its customer service or a product by the only lack of knowledge is not good, as a reminder, the 4 seasons in Europe are part of the plant cycle.

I have Ito say this was an excellent service! I ordered potted trees and I was a bit skeptical as to how and in what condition that would arrive in. I can only say that I was delighted when I received my order. I was only a small order but I can see that it was treated the same as a big order and everything that I received was perfect and of a very high quality. I really appreciate the effort this company put in for my little order. five stars all day long.!!!
