Plants were healthy and delivered in just a few days . All good experience from start to finish . Great website ----- good info and timely updates on purchase. I have a 23 year old garden and am by the sea with a windy wet climate so gardening is a challenge . Never very cold but always quite wet . Hydrangeas and Berberis along with a handful of other shrubs and perennials survive nicely here so my garden has always brought me many compliments . My recent purchases from you will of course further enhance my garden.

I bought 8 plants from this supplier and I am not impressed. For this money you can buy plants in local garden shops looking more mature and in better physical state. The shop gave me two months to see if they survive. Oven if they survive it will take a long time for them to grow up. For example, I bought Hosta for €6 which came sized about 8 cm tall and about 8 cm in width, for the same money I bought in B&Q the same Hosta sized 25cm in height and about 25 cm in width. A big difference. Lily was delivered nearly white colour and nearly dead. The rest of the plants are in nearly the same small sizes and in very poor conditions. This is a very misleading advertisements on their website. I do not advise anyone to buy their plants, you will be very disappointed.

My hostas came dry rooted. I obviously didn't read the description properly. I hope they all grow and will keep you posted. Everything else arrived well packed and there is a good supply if rain to water them in. I will be ordering again!

A purchase was a gift and there did not seem to be any cards to write a message, also I would have liked the option of purchasing a container for the plant.

Thank you for your feedback. We have checked in our system and unfortunately the gift card option (payable) was not selected at the time of your order and no pot or container was added to your order from you at the time of purchase we do have a nice assortment.

Just ok

Plants could have been a bit bigger…..one of the 3 azaleas was very miserable. Delivery very good and packing also. May use again. Let’s see how they grow?

My plants were shipped on the 18th September but I didn’t receive them until the 27th !!! This seems a very long time considering I only live in Cork !! Also I am disappointed with the size of the Percy Wiseman Rhododendron…. It’s tiny , compared to the Rhododendron Sappho !!! ( see photos ) The Azalea, mollis Orange is quite scraggy and floppy . Also soil has separated from edges of all 4 plants . I feel these plants may have sat in a dpd van for a few days before they were delivered to me . Overall , disappointed with my first experience with gardens 4 you , I spent approx €60 on 4 plants including delivery and expected bigger and better quality plants for my money .

Thank you for your feedback. Our plants are nursery-grown, nurtured from the outside, and they grow at their own pace, each specimen or variety has its own growth pattern. They are designed to endure over time, lasting for 10, 15, or even 20 years. You have a guarantee until May 1, 2024, and you will see that these plants will be exceptional in the spring.

Northern Europe lives to the rhythm of the 4 seasons. If you buy nursery plants (cultivated outdoor all year around) at the end of the growing season, just before autumn arrives, it's normal that their growth won't start until next spring. This is why orders between September and October are guaranteed longer than the usual 2 months.

Prompt fulfillment and delivery of my order. Plants were well packed. Just two arrived a “little worse for wear” and I am hoping they will bounce back in the Springtime.

For an unknown reason your parcel shipped on 25/08/2023 and confirmed by us per mail with tracking information https://tracking.dpd.de/status/en_NL/parcel/05162158787269 is returned on 05/09/2023 (today) to our company without any explanation from dpd the transport company. You are leaving a negative review even though you know full well that this unfortunate and rare incident is beyond our company's control. We cannot put a tracking device on every parcel. We ship to a total of 22 countries, so if you don't let our customer service know that your parcel hasn't arrived on time, we can't guess...We prefer to tell you in all honesty. We still have standard camellias in stock (13 in total) if you decide to come back to us and confirm by e-mail your complete shipping address including Eircode we will be happy to send you a complete new order or refund the order of course.
