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.

Ordered 4 plants. Three were dead beyond redemption. One might survive. Invoice says plants were delivered from Amsterdam. Ordered on 18 of July. Got on 22nd. Too long a time for plants to be enclosed. Extremely disappointed with this service.

I’d give it no stars if I could. I ordered 7 plants. I just got one plant. That’s half dead. No warning or money back that the way they plants had been cancelled. Absolutely disgraceful service.

Normally we always remove the flowers on the plants because they will bloom all season and the heat makes the roses wilt we had 27ºC this week. Regarding the camellia tree a replacement was send to you the next day. It's sorry to see that you don't mention the free plant you have kept and the new one you have received

You received exactly the same pink rose (Fairy Roses pink) advertise on our website since more than 20 years. We informed you that the pigmentation of the roses and their color could slightly differ depending on the shade or the sun.

Order a bag of soil that arrives with fungus gnats and pupae, no refund or solution offered, the shop is in total denial of what they sent. Avoid this webshop.

Unfortunately you never provided us photos of anything. We have 24 bags bonsai from DCM and 7 Culvita Cactus Soil, none of the inspected bags had any problems, we opened them outside to avoid any problem or contamination without finding anything.

If you had show the whole plant the other customers could see that the plant is beautiful. The plant received is exactly like the one described on the website at €20.45 with a size between 60-80cm from the top to the base of the pot. The tips of the areca always dry out as the plant grows and have been professionally cut to stimulate the growth of new leaves which we have explained to you.

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 roots had grown outside the pots / many brown spots on leaves.

It is common to see on clematis roots coming out of the pot, they are climbers. The brown leaves that may appear are withdrawn as the season progresses, plants grown outside never have immaculate leaves all year round, look closely in nature and you will see for yourself.

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...
