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.

The order took a little longer than said so I was worried about health. Some plants arrived with the root stem showing due to lack of compost. But all plants seem healthy and I would expect them to grow. The website was very easy to use

Amazing plants and good service. I ordered a lovely cherry tree and a pack of lavender plants that arrived with no problems. However, I also ordered two Astilbe arendsii Fiery Red that I didn't realize were sold as bare roots, when I was expecting the plant. It is true that it is my own fault for not noticing that, but I find that the photo on the web is misleading as it is a picture of the plant. It is said in a corner of the pic that it is coming as a bare root, but at that moment I didn't see it! Also I don't know if one of the roots will come out ahead because it came a little damaged. I will read carefully next time, hope this helps you in your orders as well!

We had 10ºC in April and the plants are just coming out of their dormancy. The pictures on our site are always for illustrative purposes and show you the product in the summer. Once planted they will grow very quickly rest assure they are 1 year guaranteed.

Some plants were missing. The 2 most expensive ones And one other that I had ordered. I have contacted and got a standard response. I am awaiting my issue to be resolved. The standard email said that sending multiple complaints will delay my case Considerably. I bought a lot last year from this shop and there were no issues so I am assuming it’s just a blip or misunderstanding hence 2 star rather than 1 and happy to correct once sorted

Not for live plants! Even though it looks like an Irish site, plants are posted from England, which would be fine with bare roots but 4 days in a box for live plants isn't acceptable. In any case the plant I purchased was very leggy and spindly and I would never have bought it from a garden centre.

Our company is based in the Netherlands and the delivery is announced on our website in 4-5 days after sending. We had 10ºC in April and the plants are just coming out of their dormancy. The pictures on our site are always for illustrative purposes and show you the product in the summertime.

Plants all great except one raspberry which has leaf spots, hopefully not an issue. For 4 day delivery time were expecting before weekend but came on the Monday instead (prob dpd issue rather than with gardens4you), so plants may have been in parcels longer than ideal. Overall great service though.

THE PHLOX SUBULATA was in bad conditions was the VINCA MINOR ATROPURPUREA. There were 3 little branches on the azalea & 2 of them were hanging severed from the stem. It was also a tiny plant THE 2 ILEX AQUIFOLIUM GOLDEN KING were nothing like what was illustrated on your catalogues, tiny plants for the price of €29.50. It was a bad experience for Padraig Trimble, New Road, Howth D13VP78 Ireland

The packaging was well thought out with sticks and paper wadding and instructions on box to direction. Unfortunately the 3 small plants arrived a bit squashed as the sticks had dropped through the pots holes at bottom and possibly courier not handling correctly.

It took a lot longer to arrive than I anticipated. I hadn't realised the mini standard rose was co from Holland.
