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 the last order, I received two plants. one of which was not the plant I ordered. When I told customer service at Gardens4You, they said the plant was the right one, just the light made it look different. When I was still unhappy (knowing plants as well as I do and growing them for well over 60 years, an agent wrote that they would talk to their manager. This was well over a week ago and no further word received. I am tremendously disappointed in what I previously thought was a great nursery. I think telling me I was in error in quite a casual way was nothing less than an insult. Because the quality of the plant I was happy with was good, I thought it only fair to give some stars. I'm sad that I will never biuy from them again. I also, by the way, pointed out some mislabelling on their sales pages, for instance the photo supposed to be Chlorophytum 'Bonnie' was patently not it. You can see this for yourself, as they haven't bothered to change anything, whether this is arrogance or stupidity, I cannot decide.

Disappointing and a let down. Unfortunately 6 of the 9 plants didn't survive the delivery in good shape. The flowerheads all turned to mould in the plastic bags they were packed in. In turn the mouldy flowerheads fell down into the plant and any leaves or stalks they lay on turned to slimy mush. I am very disappointed. I'll do my best to cut out the mould and mush and try to bring the plants back to life but that's not what I signed up for. They certainly won't be going in the display I intended them for so from that point of view it was a waste of money. Hopefully I can salvage something...

I bought 5 Hydrangeas. Some of them were weak. One of them had died in 2 weeks. The other one is on the verge of life and death for a month. Three others are better. Also, I have ordered Aubrieta pink but I got Purple colour. Definitely can not recommend the store. The first negative experience of buying plants. All plants bought in Lidl and Woodies were sold in better condition and adapted well.

The power of the plant is stored in its root system. We understand they may sometime not initially look as attractive as plants in a garden center or supermarket, but they are just as strong or even stronger. Because people usually buy plants buy their appearance, plants are forced into flower to look attractive in a garden center, but will get quite a shock once brought home and planted in your garden. They can take some time to fully recover if ever. Our plants do not waste any energy, they are hardened off and just waiting to boost into life in your garden.

Very poor delivery service considering the price. Would not buy again. Website gives impression based in Ireland but goods dispatched from UK and that’s fine but we all know if it’s dispatched in Ireland it arrives in window time of stated delivery and pay €5 for goods and €15 delivery but it needs to be done as stated or it’s false and misleading.

Our company is based in the Netherland we advertise plants in all Europe it has never been a secret our address is visible everywhere on the site. Shipping on our website is 12.95€ and not €15. We pay 3€ to DPD by parcel in addition to the 12.95€ our company does not earn a cent on the shipping costs. Your plant cost 6.95€ and there was nothing to stop you from grouping an order and thus lowering the delivery costs with friends or neighbours.

I was surprised at the size but the measurements were supplied so I shouldn`t have been. The shape of the olive tree was odd but luckily it will grow. Generally good service

I sent a camellia and pot for a retirement gift, and it was a surprise for the receiver to get some dahlia bulbs for free.

The customer service was very arrogant and rude. After I emailed that I had a problem with my plants, the customer service said I didn't understand plants, and a professional gardener would. I don't know who makes a professional, is it someone who makes a living? Don't know if they have been trained before working.

Here is the response that came from our customer service department there was no arrogance or rudeness in our response you thought all the plants were infected and didn't seem to know very well what you had ordered we tried to help you by explaining the why and how Good afternoon, Thank you for your email and the photos. Our potted plants are grown outdoors in conditions as close as possible to their natural environment (as in a garden). They are nursery plants grown without chemical additives or pollutants for the soil. We do not sell so-called "florist" plants. ​ None of the plants we see in the photos are infected. We are based in Holland and it has often been 26ºC during the day and 11ºC at night in the last few weeks. This is a natural mechanism on the leaves and plants and is not a disease in any way, professional gardeners know this well. ​ It is important when the plants are put in the ground to make once every 2 weeks a complete tour of the garden and remove the leaves that may have been damaged, there are no plants in nature without any mark or immaculate not in a garden in the open air, this is only possible only in a closed and sterile greenhouse. The power of the plant is stored in its root system. We understand they may sometime not initially look as attractive as plants in a garden center, but they are just as strong or even stronger. Because people usually buy plants buy their appearance, plants are forced into flower to look attractive in a garden center, but will get quite a shock once brought home and planted in your garden. They can take some time to fully recover if ever. Our plants do not waste any energy, they are hardened off and just waiting to boost into life in your garden. ​ If you follow our guidelines enclosed, you will be rewarded in the growing season by watching your plants grow into mature and very strong plants. Rest assured your order is guaranteed you just need to trust our experience. We wish you lots of success with your garden. Kind of regards, The customer service.

Strawberry plants are unusable. The plants are old, infected. Roots with rot, partially completely rotten. Only Beltran in a 12cm pot was suitable for planting. And so in both orders. Nearly 100 euros thrown in the trash.

It was 30ºC during the day combined with nights of 14ºC, the spots on the leaves or the slight white mould on the stems is the result of this extreme heat and humidity. Fragariae is manifested by the appearance of a kind of white fuzz that gradually covers the whole plant, starting with the leaves. It occurs when hot sunny spells alternate with rainfall, but rest assured that once planted this problem will dissipate on its own once the humidity level drops. if the plants failed to grow this season just send new photos to our customer service we will arrange a new shipping or a refund.
