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.

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...

You came to us in order to know where was your parcel left on 21/06/2022 we came back to you the same day less than 4 hours after your mail however you attributed the lowest note to our customer service which is very surprising especially that you did not say anything concerning the goods delivered on 25/06/2022. We would like to hear from you what the problem was with this order and how you can give us such a low rating without ever having requested a problem with the order received Delivery status Date Time City Parcel status+ 25.06.2022 09:17 Tullow, County C ...

The plant suffered in the box with the 30ºC we had last week and we clearly explained this to you and refunded this purchase immediately. It is distressing however to see despite the refund and our explanation that you posted your comment knowing that the plant had suffered from the heat during transit.

Most of the plants from this order was delivered as bare roost and need between 4 to 16 weeks to come out. you seem to have no real knowledge of the products ordered it is important that you respect our planting tips to avoid losing the warranty on these products. No photos have been received to our customer service regarding the other plants in pot (Buddleja davidii Pink, Hydrangea paniculata Wims Red, Photinia x fraseri Fenna 9 cm pot for exemple).

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.

Strawberry plants are unusable. The plants are old, infected. Roots with rot, partially completely rotten. Only Beltran in a 12cm pot was suitable for planting. And so in both orders. Nearly 100 euros thrown in the trash.

It was 30ºC during the day combined with nights of 14ºC, the spots on the leaves or the slight white mould on the stems is the result of this extreme heat and humidity. Fragariae is manifested by the appearance of a kind of white fuzz that gradually covers the whole plant, starting with the leaves. It occurs when hot sunny spells alternate with rainfall, but rest assured that once planted this problem will dissipate on its own once the humidity level drops. if the plants failed to grow this season just send new photos to our customer service we will arrange a new shipping or a refund.
