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.

We advertise nursery plants cultivated outdoor, the photos on our website show you always some mature products photographed in summer period. We are in winter with -6ºC last night planst will develop once planted in spring season, you will just need to protect them with some mulch of some straw during the coldest months of the years.

Three stars. Simply for the fact that I thought I was buying from an Irish company. Its an Irish website , Dutch company. Makes things awkward for using plant feed as there is no English instructions what so ever , dutch and German only. A bit irritating to receive a product with no English instructions ( especially when buying 150e worth of plants and plant feed will figure it out its just a meere type and translate in Google. Highly recommended that this company fixes that issue though. 5 stars all the way if so , for efficiency, fast and easy service.

It is not a secret that our company is based in the Netherlands our address is visible on the website and we explain who we are and what we do in the section "Who we are". We have check in our system you place the order 3-1031590 and we can clearly see the care and planting instruction of your order in English It's a pity that you take away stars for something that is in your language like the first instruction of your order below: Citrus trees - during spring and summer fertilize regularly with a standard liquid fertilizer. Always apply water from the top of the plant allowing the excess to drain. Never let the plant sit in water, it will cause rot. Plants with fruit should be kept in a light place in the living room for the winter next to a bright window. Plants without fruit should be kept in a light but cool place (10°-20°C) to promote budding such as a windowsill. This plant is cold resistant, but not frost resistant. They can be brought inside for the winter and left back out in the summer. Each spring the shrub ought to be transplanted to a larger pot, use an Azalea or heather type potting compost. Pruning should occur during the period of dormancy or right when the new spring growth appears. For additional instructions see product packaging.

Plant delivered in good condition, the whole process from ordering to delivery took 5 days, the only negative thing was that the tracking number I was provided with did not work even after 72hours after the order was shipped. To get any updates about delivery and estimated delivery date I had to conctact customer service. At that point I thought I’m being scammed. Though, customer service reacted swiftly and provided updates even on Friday end of business day, which was unexpected, letting a customer to have updates about estimated delivery date of their order should be initiated more from seller though. Anyway, all in all, good service. Thank you
