“Really bad service!”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by Kamrene1956 (1 review written)

I am extremely disappointed with this on-line company. I ordered three plug plants that were supposed to flower white. But they turned out to be blue. Asked for a new batch - but was told I couldn't have them until they said so asked for a refund and then my emails were ignored. Staff are rude and I still have not had the refund been waiting over a month now. Almost got in touch with Trading Standards! Don't order from this company - unless you want to be disappointed… Read Full Review

“The worse experience ever!!!”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by Gardener1978 (2 reviews written)

It is the worse garden centre I have came across, ever!!! The stuff which they send I can only compare to rubbish or garden waste. Half of the plants arrived dead, and the other half rotten. On top of that the worse attitude after you make a complain. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!!… Read Full Review

“WEAK , DEAD AND DYING PLANTS”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by Vicente132 (1 review written)

a couple of years ago I placed a large order and the quality was appalling. 36 collapsed and dying delphiniums etc Like a fool I nearly fell for their glossy brochure again thinking they must have improved. So glad I looked for recent reviews. The quality obviously hasn't improved so thank you to the reviewers who describe the same problems I had… Read Full Review

“plants almost dead”

Written on: 04/07/2014

Bought 3 ferns and a datura of this company and to be frank I am not sure if any of the above plants will survive as they are pot bound and very bedraggled! Another colleague of mine has had a similar experience. Definitely not worth the money I spent. Will not be ordering from these spivs again… Read Full Review

“Dreadful company”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by Stef2014 (1 review written)

I placed my last ever order with this company this year. The plants received were either dead or close to it. When I complained they were frankly rude and am still awaiting a resolution. Have ordered exotic items in previous years which turn out to be, once they mature/flower later, ordinary cheap varieties and not what I paid for. If you pay more for and order specific colours they routinely just send you the most common colours as they are cheaper - of course you won't know until they… Read Full Review

“wish I read the reviews first. plants practically dead.”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by 1946Hurley (1 review written)

Not impressed. Thought I was getting a good deal, however I was most definitely not. I bought 5 clematis for what I thought was a good price but 4 out of the 5 have 1 green leaf and I doubt Il be able to save them. 1 of the 5 might survive. Waste of money. Please don't order your plants from here. Lesson learned… Read Full Review

“Do not order from them!”

Written on: 13/06/2014

Wish I had read these reviews before ordering from Mirror Garden - whose plants are from J. Parker's. On arrival over half of plants & shrubs were dead or frail & subsequently died. Order arrived in different batches whenever plants were ready & with each arrival more complaining to do. Still trying to sort out the latest refund or replacement… Read Full Review

“No trader”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by dazmah (1 review written)

I ordered some bulbs from this company April 4th 2014 which were paid for, as of yet have received no bulbs. I was then told when I e-mailed to complain they would take 21 days, as of yet still no bulbs. I sent a second e mail asking for my money to be returned I received an apology reply but no refund and no bulbs. I will not be using this company again as far as I am concerned they are trading under false pretences… Read Full Review

“What a shambles”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by AlexandraO'Neal (1 review written)

The web admittedly, does not inform the size of perennials I bought from this opportunistic company. Value for money it is not. One plant cost more than I would pay potted, from a nursery. It arrived as a bare root plant worth no more than two pounds. The rest were just as dismal. Now I have to wait to see if the plants are the colour they say. Add to that the order is incomplete. Don't waste your money. They shouldn't be in business. A little message for the owner: Treat your customers with… Read Full Review

“Online Order”

Written on: 02/06/2014

I ordered a Daphne shrub which was described as compact on the website. When the order finally arrived some weeks later the shrub consisted of some 1.5ft of twigs with a few leaves at the ends of the twigs. I paid £13.99 for this plant When I complained I was told to put the plant into the ground and wait for a couple of months to see whether the growth would correct itself. This plant according to their web page should only be pruned lightly so I cannot correct the growth that way. Anyway I… Read Full Review

“Very poor”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Tilley228 (1 review written)

A terrible experience with this my first and last time with J Parkers. Have waited 2 months for my delivery, plants have been arriving piece meal in very poor condition and of a miniscule size. Despite several emails complaining and asking after the rest of my order all I get are replies a week later saying they will arrive 'shortly'....... the emails are vague and rude and the quality of the plants is pitiful. Most are dying on arrival if not dead already. The worst quality plants I have ever… Read Full Review

“Not bad”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by localshop (3 reviews written)

Decent plants delivered in good condition. OK - bit slower than advertised but all 40 plants ordered/delivered look in condition to thrive. In sharp contrast to van meuwen where the majority of the plants looked like they were at death'd door - or had passed through it before they were even packed let alone delivered… Read Full Review

“Disappointing. Don't waste your time or money.”

Written on: 18/05/2014 by Rodriguez308 (1 review written)

To give a free Buddleia as an incentive to buy J. Parker's products was not enough to compensate for such poor quality goods. The Lily bulbs were shot and broken, and the Trachelospermum jasminoides was -and still is- only one dying leaf, with no hope of growth from anywhere. I would never buy another product with J. Parker's name attached to it or recommend them to my enemies- let alone my friends. The packaging and instruction booklet tries to let them off the hook for poor quality and… Read Full Review

“Never Again”

Written on: 17/05/2014 by ParkerNoNo (1 review written)

I have placed two orders to date. Had to wait for ages for my first order and some plants died after planting, despite being an experienced gardener. My second order was late again, and split into two deliveries, a lot of the plants were dead on arrival. I did make a complaint but despite numerous e-mails I am still awaiting replacements. As my title says J Parkers Never Again… Read Full Review

“Terrible plants”

Written on: 15/05/2014 by Allanx201 (1 review written)

I have used parkers for years and always had good plants, until this year. I placed my usual order and out of 20 plants, I had 3 alive. The packaging was awful, they had root rot, mould on leaves and some already dead. I sent back a package at a cost to me with a letter of complaint saying to cancel the rest of my order and send me my money back, my letter was ignored, I was sent a cheque for the plants I had returned and two days later the rest of my order started to turn up, again they had… Read Full Review

“NEVER AGAIN!!!!!”

Written on: 13/05/2014 by Diaz82 (1 review written)

Having won the Totnes Gardens competition last year using local gardens centers for my last minute purchases I thought I would go all out and try to win again this year. I am using lots more baskets and planters etc so needed lots more plants. Rather than just buy what was available on the shelves locally I used the Parkers catalogue that conveniently fell through the letter box. A great selection of plants and very cheap prices for 60 and 30 plug sets etc so I could go to town. OR SO I… Read Full Review
