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.

I didn’t realise that some of the plants would arrive not potted and in root form. Maybe it says it somewhere but I didn’t see it.

The time was good and the delivery was good. Of course it's difficult to say how these plants will grow as they are dormant at this time. The rose roots were a bit smaller that I expected, but time will tell when it's time to hydrate and plant them.

The leaves of Yucca tree were a bit damaged by packaging although I'm not sure if there is a solution to that

The plants took along time to come. When they arrived they were dried out and all over the boxes. Some of them were broken beyond repair due to poor transportation

According to the photos received the 2 small plants have been damaged in transit what we sincerely regret but these 2 plants can still be saved. A full refund have been made €16.90 for those 2 plantes. We also gave you a refund of €2.84 for the Areca palm (in order to buy some new potting soil, what we think is honest and fair) the plant lost a little bit of soil but which does not show any damage on your pictures despite your insistence to get a full refund, which we regret because as we have informed you our indoor plants are always guaranteed for 2 months and you can always come back to our customer service in case of a problem with an article.

I was a little disappointed with my order. I was expecting much larger plants. ( possibly my fault for not taking notice of sizes rather than photos)

We state a delivery height for all pot plants, shrubs and trees For potted plants, this height is measured from the ground, including the pot. Keep in mind that plants that are planted in a border will be lower in the border, because the pot height disappears under the ground. Shrubs and trees supplied with bare roots, i.e. without a pot, are measured from the top of the roots and are therefore planted at the same height as the liver height. We always indicate a delivery height range because it is a live product and products can vary slightly in length during the season. Once planted, most plants will continue to grow quickly, especially in the spring.

I bought a camellia and 2 hydrangea I have to say it was a very fast delivered and the plant was really well packed and protected which I was really impressed! That said, i was a left a little disappointed wt the fact that it is literally a thin twig which I will have to grow it probably in the shed for at least a year before plant it, specially because I was planning to put it in front of the house! Overall happy with the purchase

Our hydrangeas are nursery plants cultivated outdoor all year around we have 5ºC at night and 11ºC during the days. Do not worry once planted in the garden ground and well protected with some mulch of straw they will grow very quickly in march -april when spring will return, order is guaranteed to 30 april 2023.

We are sincerely sorry to hear that, take pictures of the box and of the product please and contact our customer service we can then return to the carrier DPD and open an official complaint we do it systematically in case of bad delivery. Even if the products themselves are not damaged it is important to report any packages that arrive damaged so that we can forward the information to the 22 countries where we ship.

No proper confirmation email regarding shipping, so I was unsure when to expect my package. The plants arrived in a battered and torn box, with several of the plant pots broken and badly bent out of shape, and the plants themselves look very unhealthy, all yellow and brown and withering

All customers in Europe and therefore in Ireland receive an automatic email the day the order is shipped, yours was sent on 25/10/2022, the package was then after 72h visible on www.dpd.ie. The aubrieta that we saw on the photos were completely normal, they are plants grown outside we have in Europe the 4 seasons, the foliage of the aubrieta do not fall in autumn-winter but the plants still in pot are naturally much less attractive when the cold arrives. Do not worry as informed they are guaranteed to the 30th April 2023.
