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.

I bought four dwarf lilac standards - plants that should in all honesty be impossible to ship safely. These guy know how to pack plants! All packaging was eco (paper), and plants were so well packed and so carefully restrained in their boxes (which were the perfect size), that they weren't even missing a leaf. There was zero damage to young new shoots, and not a grain of compost out of place. The plants themselves were top quality. I'm not going to bother buying anywhere else from here on in as these guys have an amazing array of plants available that can be almost impossible to get elsewhere.

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.

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.

I loved the price of the plants oranges and lemons very reasonable and they are in excellent condition. It was great to get the instructions with them and the bonus soil. I will definitely be getting more items such as bonsai trees from you. I will need instructions with them. Great store great value great service. Thank you Dean Kenny

I am aware of the negative reviews but my experience with garden4u was very present. Plants arrived in good condition, quite quickly considering it was travelling from Netherlands (5 days). I am shocked by the amount of bas reviews. I can't say a bad thing about this company. Maybe I was lucky or maybe people are not trust worthy.

One plant received was not in good condition while all others were perfect. Notified customer service who dealt with it immediately and replacement plant is en route. Excellent service, will definitely be using again and recommending to family and friends.

Ordered my Bonsai tree arrived in great condition considering it took 8 days to arrive. Roots in great condition may need to be repotted during the winter as pot got chipped/cracked during shipping. All in all very satisfactory experience.

Having ordered a bonsai tree for delivery, I was worried it might get damaged in transit. This was not the case. Every effort was taken to project the tree. It was tightly packed and came in excellent condition. I will be buying again.

Detail and advice on plant and care, plus the little printout in delivery very helpful. Hopefully after following advice my plants take off! I'm new to gardening so excited to see them grow 😊

My magnolia tree arrived in very good condition and I immediately planted it in the prepared site. It also arrived very shortly after I had placed the order. So no complaints.

Plants were ok, well packed but ivy was yellowish so don't know if its dead already, overall as pricy as a garden centre, plants are very small in pots for price. Good delivery

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

Plants did not travel well. Probably too delicate. Had to transplant immediately as compost had dried out and disintegrated. Not sure if plant in photo will survive.
