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.

Dead,rotten and unrecognisable plants sent!!! I have received my order and I have never seen anything like this before: dead, rotten, mouldy and unrecognisable plants. This must be some joke or I don’t even know what to call it. There is no way, you can plant them. I just want my money back and someone to collect that stuff, as I am not wasting more money to send those plants back. I already paid more than 120 euro.

Our plants are cultivated outdoor. We have -1ºC at night and 12ºC during the day, it is very cold for a month of May. Do not worry the order is guaranteed, the leaves will develop later once the tree will be planted.

I was a bit disappointed when I got the flowers, I thought they were plants, but they were bare root. A few of the bare roots were dry.

Our site sells plants in various forms flower bulbs, rhizome, roots, plant in pots. It is therefore important to read the description. The roots are always sent dry in order not to develop disease or mold. Most of them need to be soaked in water prior to plant them.

Our plants are nursery plants, grown outdoors all year round and therefore exposed to sun and weather. Strawberry foliage, which starts in March, always declines at the end of August, which is completely in line with the plant's natural cycle.

We recently learned about the condition of the spider plants you received, and we are sorry to hear that the plant haven't been thriving as expected. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we are here to provide guidance on how to revive the plants. To help you rejuvenate your spider plants, consider the following tips: Ensure that the soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged. Spider plants prefer well-draining soil. Place the plants in indirect sunlight. Spider plants do well in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Trim any yellow or brown leaves at the base to encourage new growth. Additionally, we want to assure you that our plants come with a guarantee until May 1, 2024. If, despite your efforts, the plants do not show signs of improvement or if you have any further concerns, please reach out to us. We are committed to ensuring your satisfaction and will work with you to find a suitable solution. Feel free to contact our customer service with any questions or updates on the plant's condition. We appreciate your understanding and are dedicated to making sure you have a positive experience with our products.

Thank you for feedback regarding our nursery plants cultivated outdoors. We appreciate your interest and are here to address any questions or concerns you may have. It's important to note that in winter, especially during temperatures as low as -4ºC, the growth of plants can indeed slow down or even cease. This is a natural response to colder conditions, and certain species may appear twig-like during this period. You just need to protect the base with some mulch or some straw during the winter. Do not worry once planted in a well drained soil the plants will develop mid-spring season we offer guarantee until the 01/05/2024.

Thank you for your feedback. We supply relatively young plants that have been grown outdoors, so they require little adjustment and will continue to grow quickly. If there are plants that do not develop as desired, you can always claim our guarantee.

We advertise plants cultivated outdoor all year along. We send the majority of our plants as naturally growing young plants. These young and robust plants will recover well after planting and sprout anew. Hosta roots are always sent dry so as not to develop disease or mildew they need to be soaked in water prior to plant them Pennisteum are ornamental grasses that turn to straw in autumn and winter. In late spring, the plant becomes an ornamental grass again, as we can see from your photos. The rosebush shows no signs of damage, just like the other items.

The hydrangea you received develops its foliage on the new year's growth and not on the old wood. Plant please what you have received the order is guaranteed 2 months.

Lavendar plants arrived withered and in poor shape. I have repotted the plants in fresh compost and hope at least one will recover. Lesson learned. I have ordered live plants from Mr Middleton and tgey arrived in tip top shape and condition. Just saying.

Avoid, avoid, avoid!!!

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.

Our plants are nursery plants grown outdoors, designed to grow in the garden and develop with the seasons. We don't sell florist or supermarket plants fed on fertilizers and grown under artificial light. Our plants, once in the ground, will grow for years to come. We have customers all over Europe who send us photos after several years of using our products. We offer a 2-month warranty on all our plants.

Slightly disappointing

-Website had suffix ".ie" (Rep. Of Ireland domain) Plants shipped from Netherlands -Business doesn't appear to have more than a token physical address to claim .ie. This is entirely within the law but personally I find this practice dishonest. -Flowers picked were listed as good for shaded areas, upon arrival packaging stated they were suitable for direct sun. -Upon arrival one plant was in reasonable condition with some slight damage, to be expected shipping overseas ( and why I chose a supposed Irish website to prevent this) and the other plant was badly crumpled into the same packaging. Again, nothing illegal about this practice, however, I will avoid in future. This is entirely my own experience.

We do not keep secret the fact that we are based in Holland, our physical address is clearly visible on the site and we pay taxes to the 22 countries where we ship which also brings in currency in these various countries. Vinca minor and climbing rose can be planted in sun or partial shade. We've been shipping to Ireland for over 20 years and are proud to have customers in 22 European countries with the lowest prices on the market.
