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.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We appreciate your concern about the size of the plants you received. It's important to note that during the transition from autumn to winter, many plants enter a dormant phase, leading to a temporary halt in visible growth. This natural process is crucial for the plant's overall health and ensures a strong start when the growing season resumes in spring. The small size you observe is likely a result of this dormancy, and we assure you that, given the right care and conditions, the plants will exhibit robust growth when the season is conducive. If there are specific care instructions provided with your order, following them diligently will contribute to the successful development of your plants.

Slightly disappointing

-Website had suffix ".ie" (Rep. Of Ireland domain) Plants shipped from Netherlands -Business doesn't appear to have more than a token physical address to claim .ie. This is entirely within the law but personally I find this practice dishonest. -Flowers picked were listed as good for shaded areas, upon arrival packaging stated they were suitable for direct sun. -Upon arrival one plant was in reasonable condition with some slight damage, to be expected shipping overseas ( and why I chose a supposed Irish website to prevent this) and the other plant was badly crumpled into the same packaging. Again, nothing illegal about this practice, however, I will avoid in future. This is entirely my own experience.

We do not keep secret the fact that we are based in Holland, our physical address is clearly visible on the site and we pay taxes to the 22 countries where we ship which also brings in currency in these various countries. Vinca minor and climbing rose can be planted in sun or partial shade. We've been shipping to Ireland for over 20 years and are proud to have customers in 22 European countries with the lowest prices on the market.

Brown spot!

Received 20 plants,10 had brown spot and 5 were wilted and in poor health. I didn't expect to have sick plants sent to me. This brown spot didn't happen over night in the box. All the roots had completely outgrown the pots they were shipped in, although these did look healthy, they should have been in the ground with roots that long. I also, and its my own fault, didn't realise that just because the company has a dot IE website, it does not mean they are based in Ireland. I wouldn't usually buy plants that need shipping like this. I buy local plants and Ireland based suppliers to prevent receiving wilted and poor quality plants. Ti.e will tell if these plants can be revived.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that the plants do not meet your expectations. We supply relatively young plants that have been grown outdoors, so they require little adjustment and will continue to grow quickly. Also can all information be found on our website under customer service. If there are plants that do not develop as desired, you can always claim our guarantee.

Mother Nature Apparently

I bought from this site before I realised the company is based in the Netherlands and that the plants would be arriving from there. I wanted to support an Irish company. Hey ho. I ordered ten plants from the sale. There is a visual disparity shall we say between a shrub advertised and the one I received, although the label says it is indeed the shrub I ordered so how can I complain? Two grasses arrived half-dead and the bushes had been cut perhaps to fit the packaging box but probably just to cut off the many dead twigs. To be fair, customer service did respond. Initially, when they gave me the wrong tracking number and then when I sent them photos complaining about the poor condition of part of my order. To give you an idea as I can't post photos onto Trustpilot, one browning and dehydrated grass had been cut like a square of turf and pressed into a small plastic pot. Anyone who cares about plants wouldn't treat them this way. A company who respects their customers wouldn't sell such bad quality products. Customer service told me that the dead leaves and branches were part of the natural process, having been "exposed to wind, sun and rain". And "don't worry, just remove the leaves by hand". That "once planted in the garden, it will grow harmoniously with the seasons for many years to come". So Mother Nature to the rescue apparently. By the way, I told the company I would have to leave a disappointed review. They should be used to it by now.

Our plants are nursery plants grown outdoors all year round and are therefore exposed to a wide range of climatic conditions. We offer a 2-month growth guarantee on all our plants and are confident about the future development of these plants. If not, please come back to us with new photos for the guarantee.

Dpd delivery company left my parcels outside the appartement block without me knowing. One of the trees ( orange tree) I ordered arrived badly damaged with broken branches, leafs and fallen fruits. The other ( olive tree) arrived so dried up with yellow leaves I needed to repot immediately.

Plantes peu développées

Vendre des plants bien formés et non des boutures à peines développées.

Nous vendons uniquement des plantes de pépinières cultivées dehors toute l'année. Nous avons 6ºC ici en Hollande. Nous sommes à 42 jours du début de l'hiver et les Hortensias sont des arbustes à feuilles caduques. Comme beaucoup de plantes, ils subissent un processus naturel qui laisse une empreinte visuelle distincte sur leur feuillage fanés, car ces plantes ne sont pas traitées chimiquement. À l'approche de l'hiver, les hortensias commencent à perdre leurs feuilles. Ce processus, parfois perçu comme un déclin, est en fait une adaptation stratégique de la plante pour économiser de l'énergie. Les feuilles, devenues moins nécessaires en raison de la diminution de la lumière du soleil et de la baisse des températures, entrent dans une phase de sénescence. La sénescence marque la fin de la vie utile de la feuille et un caillot se forme à la base de chaque feuille, interrompant la circulation de la sève. Ce processus naturel entraîne un dessèchement progressif des feuilles, qui deviennent de plus en plus fragiles et finissent par se détacher de la plante. Il ne faut pas s'inquiéter de ce processus naturel. Les plantes et leurs feuilles déclinantes, se préparent en fait à l'hiver d'une manière plus résistante. En perdant temporairement leurs feuilles, elles économisent de l'énergie pour survivre aux rigueurs de la saison froide. Rassurez-vous, une fois plantés dans un sol bien drainé, ils se développeront normalement au printemps. La commande est garantie jusqu'au 1er mai 2024.
