Received my order last week..I immediately emailed to complain but as of yet have not received a reply.. The 4 shrubs and the flowers I received are dead or dying..If they were in a bargain box in a shop I wouldn't give them a second glance. I paid €40 for this lot plus €10 delivery. I understood they would be small and not in full flower as their website show BUT did not expect a load of dried out dead plants. Extremely disappointed.

We're sorry to hear you are not happy with your order. We checked but cannot find an email from you in the inbox. If you would kindly send your email to customerservice@gardens4you.ie we will be happy to assist you. The deciduous plants do look normal for the time of year, they will grow leaves in Spring. Hemerocallis bare roots should be planted a couple of inches below the soil in a large pot, or the ground. Perennial plants are covered by the growing guarantee, if they fail to grow in the growing season, they will be refunded or replaced.

We're sorry to hear you didn't receive your parcel yet, apologies for the delay. We tracked the parcel, and it will be registered in Ireland shortly, there was a delay with DPD because of the freezing temperatures and snow in the Netherlands. If there are any issues with the plants when you receive them, please send photos to customerservice@gardens4you.ie, so we can arrange something for your guarantee. Apologies again for the delay.

Due to the time of the year the plants can look a bit sad. This is quit normal. The roots settle down in the winter so the plant has a great start in the spring time. Your garden plants have 1 year guarantee. If they fail to grow in the spring please contact us again.

Plants were in a shocking state when I got them. The packaging was perfect, but the plants themselves were in poor conditions that undoubtedly means that they were in that bad state before the packaging was done. My rubber plant had its leaves torn and damaged, while the succulent just looked like it was from the garbage! Very awful. Customer service hasnt even responded to photos Ive sent them.

The order arrive on time. But the quality? Those were damaged, insect eaten leaves and broken, brownish cut off stubs, not gonna survive and it's not the transportation issue, have been in the state like this before packaging, far from the photo. Should have just stated the plants currently aren't available, don't create more disappointed purchases. Sent a complain with photos attached, no reply

Our plants are grown naturally as advertised sold as young specimens. The power of the plant is in the roots. Rest assured that your order is guaranteed if the plant(s) don’t establish after planting out in your garden or a larger pot.

the plants were very well packaged but the heather was brown and dying. They told us to plant them anyway so luckily we took photos first and planted them. They all died. The ones we got from GardenShop.ie were all perfect and none of them died. Now Gardens4you are pretending it was how we planted them! Explain why all the ones from Dublin are thriving them? You sent us dead stock

I bought almost 80e worth of goods from this shop. The delivery was 10 days late. I emailed them 3 times and received no response or acknowledgement. When I did finally receive my order it was missing 3 plants, some of what I received were like bulbs where I was expecting actual plants and what I did receive as plants are no more than twigs, Do not buy here, shop else where.

On your website it is misleading, we thought it was an irish site because it was .ie, when confirmation came through we discovered the plants were coming from Holand. The delivery of the plants after leaving Holland took about 1 week to reach us. Most plants were in a poor state on arrivial, Lavender is starting to look healtier, some are dead others still look very sad.

I am appalled with the state of the plants that were sent to me. The Swiss cheese plant is absolutely battered and terribly potted so it can’t stand up on it’s own. There was hardly any soil in the rubber tree pot as it was all in the plastic bag it as wrapped in, so disappointed. Had I have known the plants were being posted overseas I would never have ordered.

I am extremely disappointed with the quality of the plants I purchased! I didn’t expect to have to revive the plants back to life on receiving them. The quality of the plants was so bad that I doubt a walk in garden centre would even have them on display. I will defiantly not be ordering from this website again such a huge disappointment and waste of money.

Since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic we receive around 600 emails per day multiplied by 7 days since almost everyone is confined to their home ... imagine just for 5 minutes yourself about how busy we are, then you will understand the obsolete irony of your comment.

Most of the perennials plants come out of dormancy period in April and cannot be developed with 4ºC at night like we have in the Netherlands. They can only star to develop when they will be planted and the soil more warmer in depth. This is the reason why we offer always 1 year growth guaranty on perennials, shrubs and trees.
