Plants were healthy and delivered in just a few days . All good experience from start to finish . Great website ----- good info and timely updates on purchase. I have a 23 year old garden and am by the sea with a windy wet climate so gardening is a challenge . Never very cold but always quite wet . Hydrangeas and Berberis along with a handful of other shrubs and perennials survive nicely here so my garden has always brought me many compliments . My recent purchases from you will of course further enhance my garden.

I bought 8 plants from this supplier and I am not impressed. For this money you can buy plants in local garden shops looking more mature and in better physical state. The shop gave me two months to see if they survive. Oven if they survive it will take a long time for them to grow up. For example, I bought Hosta for €6 which came sized about 8 cm tall and about 8 cm in width, for the same money I bought in B&Q the same Hosta sized 25cm in height and about 25 cm in width. A big difference. Lily was delivered nearly white colour and nearly dead. The rest of the plants are in nearly the same small sizes and in very poor conditions. This is a very misleading advertisements on their website. I do not advise anyone to buy their plants, you will be very disappointed.

Plants were in poor condition on arrival, especially my lavenders, looks like the box was upside-down a few times during the transport.. Snowball has some sort of disease, black spots on a few leaves on arrival but all leaves now... Sambucos - ordered 3 and 1 was a decent size, one smaller but acceptable, the 3rd one about 1/3 of the size of the biggest... In future I will go to my local garden centre and pay a bit more but at least I can see what I am buying and there plants are always in top condition!

I bought a shrub rose, in a large pot, expecting a reasonably sized plant . The rise is small, it was obviously a bare root stuffed into a bigger pot, as the compost in the pit bore no resemblance to that around the rose roots. I wrote to them and they committed to replying within 24 working hours. That has well passed and I've heard nothing. Their delivery cost is at the top of the range and it's not fast either. I feel I have been sold a bum steer.

I ordered 40 lavender plants and they were almost dead on arrival. I contacted Gardens 4 U and sent them photos. I didn’t get a refund, in fact I was instructed to soak them in water. No refund and I have a mess to contend with.

Disappointed fungus and dead leaves

Very disappointed with the plants I received. They were packed badly. 14 plants packed into a small box. Which broke two branches on two plants. Dead leaves on three of the plants and 8 of the plants had a fungus. Even DPD delivery couldn't get it right. There are arrows on the box as to what way the box should be standing . I got it at my gate on it's side. Overall very disappointed. Will not purchase from there again

The plants delivered did not match what I ordered. I think thus may have been intended because when I pointed out the error they gave a partial refund saying the items I ordered were no longer available. It took five or six days and two emails to get a reply. No pickup on their phone.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the discrepancy between the plants you received and the ones you ordered. Our delay in responding to your inquiry was due to difficulty in discerning the product labels from the photos you provided, which necessitated clarification. We regret any frustration this may have caused. Regarding the partial refund, we indeed issued a reimbursement of €11.80 for the product that was out of stock and therefore unavailable. While we strive to ensure accuracy in fulfilling orders, occasional discrepancies may occur, and we appreciate your understanding in such instances.

Avoid

I spent over €130 purchasing a range of plants, I knew that they would be small but what I received were absolutely tiny . I ordered 2 hydrangeas and both were small twigs with a couple of tiny leaves for €7.95 each, I could have purchased a fully grown plant locally for €20. I was really shocked by the minuscule size of everything and I would imagine that if they survive it will take years for these to flower. My camellia was not much better. On the sheet that was sent to me after my order was processed it says that several of the bulbs/ roots I bought are highly toxic but there was nothing about this on the write ups before I bought them………not ideal with small children and pets. I had read negative reviews but because some were positive I thought I would chance it myself-BIG MISTAKE

We apologize for any disappointment caused by the size of the plants you received. As a nursery specializing in outdoor cultivation, we do not sell plants from heated greenhouses, unlike many garden centers. Our plants are sold based on their size and the descriptions provided on our website, with photos depicting mature plants typically photographed during winter. We ship to 22 countries in Europe, and as our websites are self-service platforms, it's important for customers to carefully read the descriptions of bulbs. We always note in the description if bulb or root products are toxic. It's possible you may have missed this information during your purchase. We understand your concerns regarding the size and potential toxicity of the plants. We strive to ensure transparency and customer satisfaction, and we apologize if this information was not clear to you before your purchase.

If I could give zero stars, I would. Issues with delivery resulted in an exchange with very rude and unaccommodating agent. Dead plants arrived. No refund or adjustment much less apology. Do not waste your money or take a chance. They are not based in Ireland and there are so many more reputable companies selling healthy plants.

I was disappointed with the two tiny 5 inch plants I received. The box was enormous. Also, I did think I was ordering from an Irish website, I would have ordered from a local website had I known my order was coming from abroad. Local delivery is about 6 euro.

Dissappointed, Frustrated and Out of Pocket.

I only gave Garden4you one star because I had to to in order to be able to write a review. They do NOT deserve even one star. I ordered 4 x Liriodendron tulipifera trees with the intention of growing 4 x beautiful park trees. I got 4 x rubbish trees, not in any way straight or upright; all with their leaders cut off and all in a hugely potbound condition with completely contorted roots. Despite several amicable but fruitless emails Garden4you are refusing to suitably address the situation they have created. I can return the rubbish to them but at my personal cost which they will not refund and as the return cost is not disimilar to my original payment this is a pointless exercise. I will never buy from them again and I certainly woul;d never ever recommends them to anybody else. This could have been so nice an experience all round and wasn't.

Confusing. I still don't know what have I bought!

I've bought this as on the web site its having "Tarragon Artemisia Dracunculus). The package is confusing. It saying Russian tarragon but the latin name is for French tarragon. Russian tarragon (Artemisia dracunculoides) is very closely related to French tarragon (Artemisia Dracunculus) but has no flavor. The Russian species is larger, coarser, and has no culinary merit.

We can see on our website that you have ordered item A06427, which is Russian Tarragon. The leaves can be used fresh or dried for salads, pickles, vinegar, and soups. It can also be used with chicken and fish dishes, all of which are part of the description on our website.

As we previously informed you, it is preferable to group your purchases before sending the order and payment, as once the orders arrive in our system, it will not be possible to group them together. Everything is automated, and we ship to 22 countries in Europe. Unfortunately, you had the opportunity to cancel your two orders and make a single one, but the request did not arrive in time. Please note that we do not profit from the shipping fees, as we contribute €3 per shipment.
