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.

The most unprofessional experience I've ever had. Received plants in spring that were supposed to be plug plants, young specimen but were obviously very old and had bern kept in the pots a year too long and had gotten woody. They were nothing like the sane type of plabt i had previously recieved from them. I couldn't plant them so I asked to return for a refund and they were not forthcoming eventually they agreed. I told they they could puck up the plants as I needed to buy new ones. They said they couldn't afford to pick them up. I placed an order this week, they cancelled it twice without any correspondence and when I enquired I got a nasty letter from them telling me they wouldn't sell to me because I forced the guarantee, demanded a refunding and kept the products. I used the guarantee this offer and now they have blacklisted me. The email and all the transactions have been poorly eroded and very unprofessional

Your last complaint about the lavender was unfounded. We asked you to wait at least 2 months in order to see the growth of these plants which for a scorching summer with more than 30ºC were not in the catastrophic state that you described. You refused to wait and refused to return the merchandise and therefore openly contested our guarantee as well as the terms and conditions of our site that you had accepted (strange when the plants were guaranteed for 1 year, i.e. until 08/06/2023). You forced a refund of €28.50 not to mention the threats of leaving negative reviews all over the net and on your blog that talks about plants. We assume 100% our choice and wish you good luck for your purchases on the net but especially to the competition that will welcome you.

We are sincerely sorry to hear that, take pictures of the box and of the product please and contact our customer service we can then return to the carrier DPD and open an official complaint we do it systematically in case of bad delivery. Even if the products themselves are not damaged it is important to report any packages that arrive damaged so that we can forward the information to the 22 countries where we ship.

No proper confirmation email regarding shipping, so I was unsure when to expect my package. The plants arrived in a battered and torn box, with several of the plant pots broken and badly bent out of shape, and the plants themselves look very unhealthy, all yellow and brown and withering

All customers in Europe and therefore in Ireland receive an automatic email the day the order is shipped, yours was sent on 25/10/2022, the package was then after 72h visible on www.dpd.ie. The aubrieta that we saw on the photos were completely normal, they are plants grown outside we have in Europe the 4 seasons, the foliage of the aubrieta do not fall in autumn-winter but the plants still in pot are naturally much less attractive when the cold arrives. Do not worry as informed they are guaranteed to the 30th April 2023.

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.
