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.

I ordered 150 lavender plants. About half look damaged and not in great health. Parts of the plant look dead. About 12 look completely dead and I don't expect them to survive.

Most if the plants were in tact despite being delivered upside down... But unfortunately a lot of them had browned leaves and probably won't survive.

Ordering was easy, but I was disappointed by the appearance on the plant when it arrived. When I contacted the customer services, I was informed it was out of their hands as the plants are grown in gardens and we have just finished a heat wave. The plant looks half dead. Customer services did provide information on how to care for it to get it up to health. I just feel the plant should have been delivered healthy to start with. It is trans portable, could they not have brought them indoors during the peak hours?

I didn’t like finding out that although the website seems like an Irish (.ie) site the company is based in The Netherlands. It’s a week since my order and the parcel is only now in DPD head office. That’s too long for plants to be in a box. I won’t order from Gardens 4U again. I can’t comment on the product as I haven’t received anything yet

I sent a camellia and pot for a retirement gift, and it was a surprise for the receiver to get some dahlia bulbs for free.

Unfortunately one of the plants was damaged, and the little lemon plant lost some leaves. But I hope to revive them!

Disappointing and a let down. Unfortunately 6 of the 9 plants didn't survive the delivery in good shape. The flowerheads all turned to mould in the plastic bags they were packed in. In turn the mouldy flowerheads fell down into the plant and any leaves or stalks they lay on turned to slimy mush. I am very disappointed. I'll do my best to cut out the mould and mush and try to bring the plants back to life but that's not what I signed up for. They certainly won't be going in the display I intended them for so from that point of view it was a waste of money. Hopefully I can salvage something...

Our photos are for illustration only and show you always a mature product photographed in summer period in order to give you a idea about the final product once planted. The size of the plants you buy is mentioned on our website. Our plants are nursery plants and they are 1 year guaranteed.

I bought 5 Hydrangeas. Some of them were weak. One of them had died in 2 weeks. The other one is on the verge of life and death for a month. Three others are better. Also, I have ordered Aubrieta pink but I got Purple colour. Definitely can not recommend the store. The first negative experience of buying plants. All plants bought in Lidl and Woodies were sold in better condition and adapted well.

The power of the plant is stored in its root system. We understand they may sometime not initially look as attractive as plants in a garden center or supermarket, but they are just as strong or even stronger. Because people usually buy plants buy their appearance, plants are forced into flower to look attractive in a garden center, but will get quite a shock once brought home and planted in your garden. They can take some time to fully recover if ever. Our plants do not waste any energy, they are hardened off and just waiting to boost into life in your garden.

Plants arrived in good time but were smaller than expected and some had dried out.

Very poor delivery service considering the price. Would not buy again. Website gives impression based in Ireland but goods dispatched from UK and that’s fine but we all know if it’s dispatched in Ireland it arrives in window time of stated delivery and pay €5 for goods and €15 delivery but it needs to be done as stated or it’s false and misleading.

Our company is based in the Netherland we advertise plants in all Europe it has never been a secret our address is visible everywhere on the site. Shipping on our website is 12.95€ and not €15. We pay 3€ to DPD by parcel in addition to the 12.95€ our company does not earn a cent on the shipping costs. Your plant cost 6.95€ and there was nothing to stop you from grouping an order and thus lowering the delivery costs with friends or neighbours.

I was surprised at the size but the measurements were supplied so I shouldn`t have been. The shape of the olive tree was odd but luckily it will grow. Generally good service

Plants did not travel well. Probably too delicate. Had to transplant immediately as compost had dried out and disintegrated. Not sure if plant in photo will survive.

Not happy!Good website, nice flowers, but I didn’t expect to receive a completely dead flower without any leaf! Really shame. And your customer service didn’t even reply.
