“dead plants and rude customer services staff”

Written on: 09/02/2016 by Olsonws361 (1 review written)

Awful company. Terrible customer care. Dead plants. I had purchased with them over 2 years and accepted this when I complained due to 123 dead plug plants they did not want to know . DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. … Read Full Review

“Poor quality mouldy tulip bulbs”

Written on: 24/11/2015 by MiltonDillon (1 review written)

I ordered tulip and other bulbs and the quality of the tulips we're so awful (mouldy and shrivelled) I didn't plant them and purchased others from a more reliable supplier. I emailed and got a very curt reply about not storing them properly!! There appears to be no customer care whatsoever and presumably they don't care about repeat customers! I certainly will not ever order from them again. I don't rate them to even give one star. A simple apology would have been nice!… Read Full Review

“Awful. Misleading descriptions, no response from cust serv”

Written on: 17/11/2015 by 409Cullen (1 review written)

I ordered two grape vines. The description said they would be delivered in 45 to 50 cm pots. They were delivered in 4cm pots. I emailed three times to ask for a refund and suggest they change the description on the website with no response . People are still being misled by their webpage descriptions so I have contacted trading standards consumer helpline. Avoid this company, they are cheap in all sense of the word!… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality Plants - Apalling Customer Service - ”

Written on: 07/09/2015 by 182Pugh (1 review written)

Purchased on line, quality was very poor and some dead or broken at base. Plants very small and replacements just as bad. Sent free plants with order,(maybe they knew what they were sending) even these did not all flourish and those that did were poor quality. What a waste of good money, (how can you trade like this)… Read Full Review

“poor quality plants and unreliable bulbs”

Written on: 27/07/2015 by S.Perry (1 review written)

I have ordered plants and bulbs from Parkers for years because they have such a wide range. I have always had quite a few losses but put it down to my poor gardening. Last autumn I marked where I planted my new bulbs and plants and took particular care to monitor their progress. Two out of three Eremurus bulbs failed, all five Cyclamen bulbs stayed dormant and the Acanthus Spinosus did not survive the winter. I have just finished speaking to a Parkers telesales lady about these failures before… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality Plants with Poor Quality Service”

Written on: 22/07/2015 by Morrison322 (1 review written)

I ordered 3 set of plants Marigolds, Hydrangeas and HT Roses (10 pack). Marigold plugs were replaced twice and both times dead. Then they had forgotten to replace the 3rd time and we were then out of season. They gave me a refund. Hydrangea was of a poor quality and the plants very small (for the price they are charging). One plant was dead on arrival and I am still waiting for them to reply to my email even after several reminders. Bare root Roses were okay on arrival. Planted them and all… Read Full Review

“This parrots not dead hes resting!”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by smoggy49 (1 review written)

I purchased 23 plants from the above, 17 of them were dead or close to it when delivered. As has been previously said the plants I received looked nothing like the mature plant pictured on the website. I know that this may sound naive but although I didn't expect a flourishing bush a foot high (as shown on the website), the tiny 5cm plants where a disappointment. Add to this half of the order where dead and rotting, the other half needed CPR! I rang to question this and a young girl said "they… Read Full Review

“Tiny plants, fail to thrive”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by TuckerPatterson (1 review written)

I ordered a bunch of plants, was pretty excited. The company never told me when they were going to deliver, the delivery was split up in portions, again no info about it. When the plants arrived, they were TINY !!! and still one month later are still TINY! Unless you like midget plants that don't grow, don't order. Just really frustrated as my hopes were high, looking at beautiful pictures in the catalogue… Read Full Review

“sub standard plants”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by zuFallon214 (1 review written)

I have just purchased some Alpine Phlox which have arrived in a very sorry state. They are very small plants and some of them are so small and rotting that they will not grow. I have advised Parkers of this, but have been told to plant them and they will grow. They must think that we have no knowledge of gardening. You cannot grow rotting plants. I am waiting a response on how to return them. I will update my review on their response… Read Full Review

“Buyer Beware”

Written on: 15/06/2015 by Morrisharry (1 review written)

Poor value even if they survive, most of them have not. Very small plants, could be described as a plug in a large pot. Shrubs are a stick in a pot about 12 inches high. The brochure and website are good but do not be fooled by pictures, what you see is not what you get. Complained but never got a reply… Read Full Review

“A good budget source of plants”

Written on: 14/06/2015 by Allyson364 (1 review written)

I am stocking a new garden, so I went to Parkers to pre-order bulbs for Autumn planting. I've been buying bulbs from Parkers for years so I know they are very reliable. I also ordered a shrub (Chaenomeles, pot-grown) and three perennials (Veronica, pot-grown) at full price. The shrub was as I expected - a 9cm pot with a healthy young plant, attached to a cane appropriate to the length of the longest shoot. The perennials were in 7cm pots in a plastic pack to protect the foliage. They were… Read Full Review

“Withering and dying”

Written on: 10/06/2015 by JacquelineChoate193 (1 review written)

Some of my order arrived today. My local garden centre sells bigger plants for a fraction of the cost. Free bulbs look dead, planted them to see if they will grow. 3 ferns arrived all extremely tiny and very very poor condition. Do not waste your time or your money - well over priced !!! Package also left on doorstep… Read Full Review

“Very poor quality ”

Written on: 04/06/2015 by Glen22 (1 review written)

I ordered a selection of plants and shrubs, they arrived in a poor state and I was extremely unhappy with the quality of the plants, it would have been cheaper for me to buy them locally as the price I paid was high for the goods received, some of the small withered shrubs looks as if they will not thrive I won't be using this service again. I only wish I had read some of the reviews before wasting my money… Read Full Review

I ordered a significant amount of plants, they arrived and most were in poor condition, I followed the planting instructions but as an experienced Gardner I had little hope for some, my fears were true and after two and a half months the poor quality ones have no signs of life despite my nurturing. i contacted J parker explaining that the ones that arrived in poor quality had no life still after 10 weeks, I WAS ADVISED TO WAIT. I AM NOT STUPID EVEN DEVINE INTERVENTION WILL NOT REVIVE THESE… Read Full Review

“Never had a problem”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by annawilkinson2302 (1 review written)

I have been ordering from Parkers for years with the result that my garden is full of their plants. I have never had a problem; They send out the plants when appropriate and usually they are very healthy. I find it better to pot on the perennials on receipt, with the result that in about a month I have nice big plants. They are also very good value, especially when you compare them with other mail order companies, some of whom are outrageously expensive (and I do mean Crocus). Sorry but I… Read Full Review

I ORDERED SOME PLUG PLANTS PLUS SOME CASCADING BEGONIAS. THE CAT SHOO PLUGS ARRIVED IN A DISINTEGRATED STATE - NOT PACKAGED SECURELY ENOUGH AND USELESS. I COMPLAINED AND WAS PROMISED A REPLACEMENT. THE REPLACEMENTS ARRIVED YESTERDAY AND LOOKED TO BE IN TACT THIS TIME BUT ON TOUCHING ANY OF THE PLUGS TO PLANT UP THEY DISINTEGRATED IN MY HAND LEAVING ME WITH A STEM WITH NO LEAVES ATTACHED. I SHALL BE COMPLAINING DIRECT TO THEM BU I DO WISH I HAD READ THESE REVIEWS BEFORE PLACING THE ORDER. I… Read Full Review
