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.

Dead,rotten and unrecognisable plants sent!!! I have received my order and I have never seen anything like this before: dead, rotten, mouldy and unrecognisable plants. This must be some joke or I don’t even know what to call it. There is no way, you can plant them. I just want my money back and someone to collect that stuff, as I am not wasting more money to send those plants back. I already paid more than 120 euro.

Good site, with some room for improvement

The information is not consistent. It says Non poisonous and Poisonous in two different places for the same plants. Also the website is scrappy, it signs out automatically after some time and clears the shopping cart. I like to take my time selecting plants after considering several factors. It was annoying to lose all the items in the cart just when you're ready to add another few. Finally, the pricing is inconsistent too in terms of value - some plants are good value, some are overpriced. I'm planting a new largish garden, and wanted to pick up all plants from here to make the most of the shipping price however some were too pricey to consider. Guess I'll have to go to the neighbourhood garden centre for those

Thank you for your feedback. Let's face it, 70% of the plant kingdom contains plants that are poisonous or dangerous if ingested alone. And 70% of these plants are found every day in our homes and gardens without any accident, because this is very rare in the whole world.If your shopping cart is empty it would be necessary to accept the cookies and not to block them check this in your internet browser and in your options.

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 .

Thank you for your feedback. Our plants are nursery-grown, nurtured from the outside, and they grow at their own pace, each specimen or variety has its own growth pattern. They are designed to endure over time, lasting for 10, 15, or even 20 years. You have a guarantee until May 1, 2024, and you will see that these plants will be exceptional in the spring.

The flowers delivered were delivered on time and as expected. They look great and were very well received. The only issue I had was that I was given an option to add in a free card/note, which I did - I filled in a full message and signed it off. Unfortunately, our recipient was unable to find this note and had no idea who the plants were from. In the end I had to ask if she had received the delivery and advise they were from me. Not ideal when the delivery was intended as a gift.

Our system always asks you at the time of ordering whether the order is a gift. Unfortunately no message and no gift card (paying) have been selected for this order we have checked.

Received my plants as per order and in good condition (well watered) and well packaged as they were in transit for 5 days because of the bank holiday weekend! Shipping took longer than expected as I was expecting it from Ireland and couldn't find my tracking information using the DPD IE website. A small improvement would be to include the NL DPD website along with tracking number in the order summary confirmation. Good communication when I had a query about my order.

Ordering is easy, delivery speedy. However the description on line, the guidelines on paper, and the passport on the bag don’t all align, now it’s important to know I’m very much a novice in this area, so I need lots of help with planting etc. I’ll contact the guys for help, but better instructions would help. Being an expert in this case is a disadvantage as they assume the customer understands the details. Some of us don’t and need more help, please.

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.

Beautiful Plants

Since I'd moved in a new house I decided toads a bit of 'green spots' (even because I like the nature and the plants) and I found the gardens4you website during my research on internet. I bought them and I was positively surprised when I received them. Well packed, everything in order and the plants are gorgeous. Well kept and perfect health. They have already started to grow up and I'm very happy. I strongly recommend Gardens4You.

Honest appraisal

My order arrived packed into a single box a day later than expected. One of the plants (the Fatsia Japonica) was already slightly damaged and this must have happened at packaging time. Hope it will recover with some necessary "surgery" and some TLC. Was a bit disappointed but due to my age, acquired disabilities and lack of transport, I will need to rely on online gardening websites in the future.

I had a large bare root order that completely died, not one plant. I soaked and followed instructions, watered in with compost. By the time I realized that it was a lost cause, the "warranty" was no longer applicable. I have taken advantage of the groupings discount- for hedges and lavender - only about 3 of each batch thrive, at least 4 lavender arrived dead, and 3 out of 10 hedge plants.

The plants were quite dehydrated & wilted when they arrived. Considering I had spent €75 I was not impressed. I soaked them in water straight away & planted them in my front garden. Time will tell how they do. Really hoping they are strong plants that will thrive. Thank you

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. With the heat and the 4-day transit it is important to soak the plants and leave them in the shade in the fresh air before planting them in the morning or evening in the cool. Do not worry we offer 2 month guarantee.

My grapevine was very shabby looking when it arrived. Had I seen it in a garden centre I would not have bought it in this condition. I have planted it and hoping it will produce. My orange plant was perfect.
