“ordering of tulip bulbs”

Written on: 15/12/2014 by 1975Vogel (1 review written)

I ordered £35 worth of tulip and lily bulbs on 6 November. J Parker bulbs operate under the umbrella of the Guardian Garden Centre, which lulls on into believing that you're dealing with a quality product from a quality newspaper. The bulbs arrived on 17 November (my card was debited on the day of order, needless to say) and they were in awful condition. So bad that they must have left the warehouse in the same condition - as they arrived with me on the day after despatch. They were mouldy… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your money”

Written on: 10/12/2014 by Goode8 (1 review written)

I realise plants suffer some stress due to postage, however the plants arrived in such a sad and leafless state that it seems unlikely to me that they left their premises in a saleable one to begin with. Two long months wait for end of season bargain bin plants that cost a premium rate… Read Full Review

“Items too small- am phoning them today, unbeliveable”

Written on: 07/12/2014 by Bennett259 (1 review written)

I am the sort f person who shops around and is fully aware of prices/sizes of shrubs in high street garden chains eg the range, homemase, b and q. I was so disappointed when a hydrangea I purchased was no more than a cutting plant and some dogwood was no more than a few 10 cm twigs. Was meant to be buying plants to make a front garden from scratch, and have been left ewirh some twig shrubs. At time of purchase it size was not listed so I took a risk, will be ck tasting them to explain my… Read Full Review

“Took payment but can't find the order - no refund...”

Written on: 19/11/2014

I placed an order online on the Sunday evening but had no order number generated, just a message from their payment system saying that Your transaction has been successful but there was a problem connecting back to the merchant's web site. Please contact the merchant and advise them that you received this error message. I emailed JParkers but had no reply. On Wednesday the funds had been taken from my account, I phoned JParkers who could not find my order and said they would call me back… Read Full Review

“Rudest customer service and grotty plants”

Written on: 07/11/2014 by Jetaimevintage (1 review written)

Every experience ordering through J Parker bulbs at work has been unpleasant. 'Plants' that arrive (about 2 months later) are so dead and rotted they are just cubes of soil. Loads of bulbs they sent turned to brown goo full of flies and when complained they just tried to blame me, but they clearly had not been properly dried for this to occur. Customer service and accounts staff are snappy, unhelpful, unfriendly. For the price difference please go elsewhere, you wont regret it. Worst plant… Read Full Review

“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
