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 ordered garden plants from this site. I found the whole experience from start to finish first class. They have an excellent choice online. Their website also has excellent details on each plant. Their prices are extremely competitive; the best I’ve seen to be honest. Admittedly the plants are probably a bit younger as a result but I don’t mind that at all for the price. The size of the plant is clearly listed online so I knew what to expect. I contacted their customer service regarding a plant that was out of stock at the time. I got an informative email almost immediately answering all my questions. The plants were packed well when delivered with a helpful information leaflet for all my purchases included. I would happily recommend them and I will definitely shop with them again.

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!

Plant delivered in good condition, the whole process from ordering to delivery took 5 days, the only negative thing was that the tracking number I was provided with did not work even after 72hours after the order was shipped. To get any updates about delivery and estimated delivery date I had to conctact customer service. At that point I thought I’m being scammed. Though, customer service reacted swiftly and provided updates even on Friday end of business day, which was unexpected, letting a customer to have updates about estimated delivery date of their order should be initiated more from seller though. Anyway, all in all, good service. Thank you

I bought four dwarf lilac standards - plants that should in all honesty be impossible to ship safely. These guy know how to pack plants! All packaging was eco (paper), and plants were so well packed and so carefully restrained in their boxes (which were the perfect size), that they weren't even missing a leaf. There was zero damage to young new shoots, and not a grain of compost out of place. The plants themselves were top quality. I'm not going to bother buying anywhere else from here on in as these guys have an amazing array of plants available that can be almost impossible to get elsewhere.

I love the website and everything is described well. I was a little naive to expect my plants would arrive somewhat grown, but they are just bulbs. I'd like to have seen this on the site. The information sheet that arrived with my items was an A4 printout in black and white and not as well presented as their site. I kept having to refer back to the site before planting. Also, I wasn't sure if I should submerge the whole bulb in the ground or leave the start of growth peeping out and no-where could I find information on that. All will be fine once my garden looks fab in a few months I hope.

The customer support is amazing! Something going wrong is always possible so in the end it's all about how they handle it and I am pleased. I ordered twice from them now. In my first order, one of the plants where badly damaged and they sent a replacement. The 2nd time, 2 of the pots did not survive the journey but they refunded me so all good. I might made it sound like they don't have a good packaging but I think they do. It's full of padding and a sign to keep the box upright. I think the damage was due to poor handling of the delivery guy not the fault of garden4you.

Pictured are my baby Camellia Japonica with their healthy, glossy leaves & little buds at their tops just bursting to grow yet more leaves! My other was a 'bare root' & then some seeds. The plants are ALWAYS extremely well packaged & delivered with care. I've bought from the shop a few times now, in fact my 'Red Robins' for hedging - purchased last year is absolutely thriving. I 💜 your shop, keep up the great work! Very happy customer indeed. 👏👏👏👏

Good packaging. Luckily you had elastic around the hydrangea pots as the delivery man had the box upside down ! The Hy marieseii recovered once watered. Host as potted up and I’m just waiting for new shoots. 🤞🤞🤞 I would have loved a plant stick label to stick in my pots. Made my own, though not pretty, they’ll do the job. Now that delivery and packaging concerns are allayed I look forward to ordering again in the future. Many thanks. Mary
