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.

The box with plants was delivered upside down

I’ve ordered a Boston fern and a flytrap in this shop. The flytrap was meant to be a gift. Unfortunately, when the order was delivered, the box was upside down. Even though all the plants seem to be carefully packed, the flytrap arrived in a very poor condition. I’m not sure it’ll survive. The soil was everywhere and it’s leaves and traps were damaged. I can understand that it may be a fault of a delivery company, but when I tried to contact the shop with email, I got no response. Don’t appreciate such kind of service.

Young trees damaged during transport

The cardboard box should have sort of root retainer inside to prevent football moving so the young trees don't fly around during (wrong)transport. That would prevent the young shoots from getting damaged. The sticker on the box is clever but during handling thousands such boxes a day in a big mailcenter it will still happen that one gets upside down and break all fragile shoots... I got a delivery with a badly damaged tree and I get a replacement free of charge, no questions asked. That's customer care as it should be...

Everything came well packaged. A couple of the trees were WAY smaller than I anticipated. As someone with no experience, I hope I can keep everything alive. I would shop here again.

Great plants

Great products. Purchased gorgeous pots as well as plants. Plants very healthy and sent with care. Shipping is pricey but would be worth it if buying a lot

Received in a timely manner, a bit smaller than I expected. Not sure yet if they will survive as there are no buds yet.

In winter, perennial plants, shrubs, and trees that are grown outdoors (where it is 2ºC in the morning) do not yet show growth because the sap is dormant and not yet circulating. Do not worry, once our products are planted in well-drained and clean soil, the order is guaranteed from the date of purchase until May 1, 2024, giving you ample time to contact us with new photos if there is no growth by mid-spring.

Poorly secured shipment. The seedlings were loosely thrown in; one of them did not survive (completely broken)

Shipping took to long to start, not to deliver but to start. Order wasn't shipped until a week after and took too long for the cost. I can order items from China for less money and free shipping. Suggest they read their reviews also

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 .

My wife ordered a XL Pot but didnt check the size, XL = 18cm which is a very small pot. She thought also it was an Irish site but was not had an Irish domain .ie but its actually Dutch she paid shipping and must pay for the return also. So not worth the expense to return (12euro to get it and 16 to return 28E shipping fees). Two points XL is not 18cm and .ie domain but returns shipping to NL is very expensive but shipping to IE would have been half the price.. Ended up having to keep the small pot :-)... If ordering make sure of everything chances are you are not returning the item.... Apart from that nice people...nice goods

Thank you for providing your feedback. Upon reviewing your concerns, it appears there was a discrepancy in pot size perception. We understand that you initially measured the pot in inches, and we want to clarify that our website specifies a 18cm diameter, not the 7cm that was initially perceived. The 18cm ceramic pots are labeled as XL on our site to ensure transparency and avoid any confusion in the product description. Our company, based in the Netherlands, proudly displays its physical address on the website. We adhere to tax regulations in all countries we ship to, contributing to the local economies, including Ireland and Europe. Regarding return policies, as outlined in our terms and conditions, if an error arises from the customer's end, the return is at their expense. However, should a mistake occur on our part, we are committed to covering the costs of replacement or providing a full refund. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we appreciate your understanding in this matter.

For the amateur gardener a ‘live’ photo the trees I ordered in advance would have very helpful to avoid the disappointment of receiving what are basically 2 very pruned back twigs - I understood there would be no flowers but thought there would be leaves.

For the amateur gardener, a ‘live’ photo in advance of the product I would actually be receiving and not the 2 very pruned back twigs which arrived. I understood there would be no flowers at this time of year on the trees I ordered but assumed at the very least there would be leaves. It transpires that there will be no leaves either for almost 2 years. Entirely unsuitable to be used to enhance my patio at this time. Photos on website very misleading and should have additional commentary for the average customer. A very disappointed customer!

The photos on our site always show mature plants photographed in summer, precisely to give an idea of what the plant will become. Just base your judgement on the weather and the season we're currently in - it's currently 4ºC in Holland - fruit trees are deciduous and always lose their leaves in winter, since our plants are nursery plants grown outdoors. Leaves are solar collectors and enable plants to transform sunlight into energy. In autumn and winter, there's less light and it gets colder. Leaves can no longer produce food for plants. A sort of plug forms at the base of the leaf, preventing sap from circulating. Leaves dry out, stain, become brittle and fall off. Don't worry, once these products have been planted in clean, well-drained soil, the order is guaranteed from the date of purchase until May 1, 2024, giving you plenty of time to come back to us with new photos in the event of non-growth in mid-spring.

I ordered 6 Asters but only received 5. I was offered a refund because to replace the missing plant would cost more than the postage. So! I wanted 6 and it wasn't my problem that they left me one short. This is the second time this has happened recently - another supplier gave me 10 bulbs instead of 12 which is also annoying. Apart from this my other items in the order were fine and packaging and speed of delivery were very good!

We're sorry if you missed an Aster bulb in the package. For reasons of minimum package weight, shipping costs (€14.95) and C02 our system automatically refunds the item at €1.92. This is a decision we have taken because the parcel could not be handled by the carrier.

Great site. Easy to use , quick responses.

Easy to use website, quick responses and quick delivery. Packages very well. The plants were bought as a gift and instructions for 'planting out' were forwarded which was great to receive but as someone who doesn't have a huge amount of knowledge about plants it would have been good to receive a little 'how to care for your plant' card as I'm responsible for keeping them alive until they're gifted. 😳😵‍💫 Overall very pleased.
