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.

I ordered 150 lavender plants. About half look damaged and not in great health. Parts of the plant look dead. About 12 look completely dead and I don't expect them to survive.

Two of the bare-root plants I ordered were dead and rotten on arrival, and, by the look of them, I'm sure they were long dead before dispatch. The other plants were very small, feeble and GREATLY overpriced for the quality. Customer service took a long time to respond and were very cynical and no help to me whatsoever. I will never shop with Gardens4you again, and I would actively discourage other enthusiasts from doing so as well. A complete waste of money.

Nobody can judge whether a healthy root will develop or not, it is not the size of the product that will give the final size of the plant. Your knowledge of plants was clearly limited, we gave you a clear and honest opinion, too bad you took it that way, especially since these roots were guaranteed until October 1, 2022 as we informed you.

I purchased some plants on this site believing their 'Growth Guarantee Many of the plans were damaged on arrival. I planted them anyway, as per instuctions. After a few weeks, I reported their non-growth to Gardens4You, along with photos. They disputed the fact they were clearly dead and refused to refund me for several more weeks in the hope they would magically come back to life. I was asked to leave the dead plants in situ for another few weeks or return them at my expense and they would refund me (minus the original shipping and return shipping costs) This is also against their policy or returns. I've followed up a few times but now they don't reply because I asked for a refund. Avoid this lying, thieving company at all costs.

We offer 1 year growth guarantee on all orders placed on our website. None of the plants in the photos we received were as you described in your email. Keeping the goods and refusing to pay for them is similar to what you tried to do so we asked you in order to get full refund to return the goods in accordance with the terms and conditions you agreed to when ordering.

I was disappointed not to say disgusted with the quality of the plant material. I waited two days and kept the plants in the dark as per instructions then, when there was no sign of frost planted some out in the garden. There was mostly dead leaf and the roots were very brown and disintegrating. The rest I planted into small plant pots with seed compost in the green house hoping for some revival. I despair of any life in these examples. The garden plants are totally dead and, as you can see from the photo most of the greenhouse plants are in a dismal state. I shall never again buy anything from Gardens4you and would never recommend you to anybody. It has been a total waste of money and I expect a total refund.

It is clear on the photos that the plants have suffered during the transit and we are sorry about that. Just contact our customer service for a new shipping or a refund of course the order is 100% guaranteed.

Some plants were missing. The 2 most expensive ones And one other that I had ordered. I have contacted and got a standard response. I am awaiting my issue to be resolved. The standard email said that sending multiple complaints will delay my case Considerably. I bought a lot last year from this shop and there were no issues so I am assuming it’s just a blip or misunderstanding hence 2 star rather than 1 and happy to correct once sorted

Sorry to say …The plants arrived all squashed up with lots of fallen dead leaves. The worse one was the floribundas rose which was also considerably diseased with white fly and a brown aphid! I would not have bought any of the plants had I seen them. I fear that they could contaminate other plants. Please refund. I’m so disappointed. Kind regards, Patricia

The plants arrived later than it was stipulated. The plants were dehydrated and seem to be like cuttings rather than as described on the website as plants. I have my doubts if any will survive..... we have to wait and see. But they were thrown into the box wrapped up individually in a plastic bag, and the tiny stem barely has anything green on it.

My plants were packed last Friday and were not delivered within 4 days. It’s now late on Thursday and my plants still haven’t arrived although I’ve just checked the DPD website and they were apparently delivered earlier but they weren’t It can’t be good for the plants (if they do arrive) to have been in a box at a depot for 7 days

After shipping delivery to Ireland is about 4-5 working days weekend and bank holiday not included. This order arrived on time according to dpd.

Not for live plants! Even though it looks like an Irish site, plants are posted from England, which would be fine with bare roots but 4 days in a box for live plants isn't acceptable. In any case the plant I purchased was very leggy and spindly and I would never have bought it from a garden centre.
