I've always trusted and enjoyed shopping with gardens4you. Plant quality is good with a speedy delivery. Recently though I received a delivery where the plants just shouldn't have been sent out, after my initial disappointment, decided to wait to see if they would make a comeback which they didn't, that was when I decided to contact customer service. They responded very quickly, just asked me to send a photo as evidence and they would then replace the order if they still had them in stock or refund me, I was more than happy with that response so all good. Easy to deal with this company even if you experience a problem. 👍

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.

Quick delivery. Of 5 hydrangeas ordered, 3 looked quite robust but 2 were just short stems with only 1 or 2 leaves. Time will tell if they take successfully or not.

Not all the hydrangeas you have ordered are of the same category. Some of the hydrangeas in your order will only grow on the current year's growth. Do not worry the order is guaranteed until the 02/07/2023 they will have plenty of time to grow.

Packaging and instructions were excellent. 4 days for delivery is too long for a 14.50 charge, knowing that DPD deliver in 24 hours for everyone else often for less

We are sorry about what happened and we mentioned it to you. We know that on the 2 orders sent packages that were bundles (several boxes attached together) were separated and lost by dpd. We have after investigation with the carrier as soon as possible replaced and refunded what could not be shipped anymore. It's a pity that your commentary doesn't mention this at all.

Received my plants as per order and in good condition (well watered) and well packaged as they were in transit for 5 days because of the bank holiday weekend! Shipping took longer than expected as I was expecting it from Ireland and couldn't find my tracking information using the DPD IE website. A small improvement would be to include the NL DPD website along with tracking number in the order summary confirmation. Good communication when I had a query about my order.

As we are based in the Netherlands, our site recommends that you keep an eye on your mailbox as automatic messages often arrive as spam if you have an antivirus.

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 confirmation email with tracking arrived probably in your spams or deleted items. The acer that you ordered is a young specimen which will take its red tint as the text of the site indicates.

After shiping delivery to Ireland is about 4-5 working days weekend and bank holidays not included. We were closed on April 27/04/2023, a holiday celebrating the King of Holland's birthday as indicated on our website. Your order with Achillea arrived today 02/05/2023.

Plants mostly good quality, one batch had small amount of root growth, but have just planted them and they may be fine. Tracking system does not really work, plants arrived quite quickly but no information about timing at all on tracking system. Timing of delivery Netherlands to Ireland often better than from Irish suppliers.

I ordered circa 90 Stipa pony tails...they arrived promptly and I planted them within 48 hours. A couple weeks on and 25 have died. I've sent 2 emails to customer service asking if they can be replaced as explained on the website, but have not even received a reply. Beware to buyers that you may have to buy 30% + extra to account for plants that die...and don't expect their customer service to actually support or even engage with you.

Our last email conversation was a month ago and concerned lavenders. You have never contacted us for anything else except the first order which we sent back at our expense because you gave us an incomplete order as well as the wrong city.

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.
