“Great no quibble service”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by TraceyJones (1 review written)

I made my order from Dobies and received my first just following the Easter holidays, the plants must have been stuck in the postal system for a while and arrived in a sorry state. I wrote an email to Dobies who sent me out replacement plugs straight away. They have arrived in a week perfectly and now potted on successfully. Already planning my next purchase from Dobies well done!Hope the plant turn out as good as their service… Read Full Review

“Cosmos - Cranberries”

Written on: 30/08/2013

I am a lover of Cosmos plants and I usually sow the White Sensation variety but this year I decided to give this variety a go after seeing it in Dobies catalogue and I am delighted with the outcome. In the border the plants are striking and a good foil to the lime green nicotianas. In my pots they are the centrepiece with trailing lobelia around them as well as climbing up them. I have teamed the Cosmos with Coleus and red and purple fuchsias. Gorgeous… Read Full Review

“Strawberry Toscana F1 plants”

Written on: 20/06/2013

These strawberries were an offer which I thought sounded good, although I don't normally grow them but I'm very pleased I did because the flowers are astonishing. The plants themselves arrived well packaged, well grown and strong. As I said, I don't normally grow strawberries, but full instructions came with the pack, and I didn't have any problems. I did pot them on because the weather wasn't of the best, and I thought in any case it would give them a better chance, but they've grown on… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2013 by evekinder (1 review written)

my husband and I have been buying vegetable and flower seeds, herbacious border plants and annual flower plants in plug form for over 30 years. We have been satisfied enough to buy them every year during that time. We have always been happy with the service we had from Dobies and since it started, buying on the computer has been very straight forward. We would recommend the whole system to anyone.The seasonal catalogues you supply are excellent in colour and quality… Read Full Review

“Exceptional help to a first time gardener”

Written on: 09/05/2013 by Hannahv29 (1 review written)

I was a first time gardener when I visited Dobies online. I only purchased one pack of seeds to be delivered to me by post - this doesn't seem like a lot, I know, but what came with the seeds was a leaflet giving me advice and hints as to when to plant/maintenance of seeds. This gave me confidence to plant and my flowers are growing happily now! On top of this extra, incredibly useful advice, Dobies website is easy to use and full of offers, tips and great quality product. The seeds were… Read Full Review
