“Appalling”

Written on: 21/09/2014 by 157Finnegan (1 review written)

Our son bought us an anniversary rose from these people. It arrived in an impressive crate, but the plant itself is tiny and looks unlikely to survive the winter. A normal garden centre wouldn't even have it on display let alone price it at nearly £50. As others have commented, this is a complete rip-off. The firm can only get away with it because the purchaser cannot see the goods, and since they are sent as a gift, may never find out how poor they actually are. I intend to pursue the matter… Read Full Review

We are firstly incredibly sorry that you were clearly unhappy with the service and product you received from ourselves, I can assure you that this is not the normal experience of a Gluttonous Gardener customer. The roses that you will have received will vary in appearance depending on the time of year received, in the summer months they will look more impressive and when autumn arrives they will be cut back to promote stronger, bushier growth for the next season.

We would never compare ourselves to a garden nursery, nor would we deny that the same plant can be purchased at a lower cost. We are a gift company and as such offer a value added service, from our beautiful packaging to having the gift delivered on the date of the customer choice to any address accompanied with a gift message and are certainly not looking to rip any of our customers off, a huge amount of time and care goes into each and everyone of our packages and the satisfaction of both our customers and recipients is extremely important to us.

We would always encourage communication if the customer/recipient is unhappy with their gift. We will always if the plant is unhealthy or has failed replace the plant with another healthy specimen.

It is never our intention for any of our recipients to be unhappy with their Gluttonous Gardener gift. We do not have any of your order details so I am unable to see what communication has taken place between yourselves and our company but I can assure you that your experience is not normal, we have been around for over 20 years and this has been built on many of the recipients of our gifts going on to becoming customers.

Kind regards and again our apologies for the disappointment this gift has clearly caused you.

“Please avoid this site at all costs!!”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by roforsh (1 review written)

The Gluttonous Gardener and Not on the High Street operate on a principle of maximum profit for minimum product. Like other reviewers, we were duped by website images and descriptions that did not accurately resemble the product. A rose that cost £10 on the high street was sold for £44 on "Not on the High Street" and then further costs for postage which would have been around £4.50 with a company like Hermes at a staggering £9 with this rogue company. The rose is abysmal, small and lacking… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2014

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, we are extremely sorry that you are clearly so disappointed with your gift. We have been in contact with yourself with regards to this order and have politely replied to your emails as to explain that we are not a plant nursery, our gifts all hand packed to order in our beautiful gift boxes, they are then delivered on the date of the customers choice to any UK address and delivery is £5.95 not £9 as you have stated.

We can assure you that a huge amount of time and car goes into packaging our gifts and getting them out to the recipients and feel they offer value for money and a service that no garden centre would be able to offer.

The rose you have received we can assure you is of a very good quality and will continue to thrive for many years to come, they naturally look different throughout the year, it will be stronger and bloom again next year.

Kind regards
Sally Golland

“Blueberry Plants”

Written on: 12/05/2014 by 463McKee (1 review written)

The plants arrived on Friday beautiful packaging and I was delighted to receive such a wonderful gift. Sadly the plants were the worst I have seen. On checking the website I could not believe how much money had been spent on these plants and sent a photograph together with na email to the Gluttonous Gardner I have not received a reply yet but have advised my friend to ask for a complete refund from the company, and if it is not forthcoming contact her credit card company… Read Full Review

“Total Rip Off.”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by qfCoffey330 (1 review written)

Latin names hyped up for a common blackthorn hedge plant worth in total about £1.50 from hedging suppliers. Free if you know where to look. Wrapped in a hessian bag with fancy labels hiding in a box of wood shavings. The sloe chutney is available for £3.95 from Yorkshire company. £50.00 in total including postage. I am sad my child was so taken in. It was a gift for Mother's Day. Possibly the worst one I have ever received. I could have planted a whole hedge round an acre for that. I would… Read Full Review

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback we are extremely sorry to see that you were so clearly disappointed with your gift, I can assure you this is far from how we would have hoped you would feel. A great deal of time and care is put in to the packaging, presentation and contents of our gifts all of which are hand packed by ourselves. We would never deny that you could not buy the individual contents of the gifts cheaper however we are a gift company not a plant nursery and as such we have delivered the gift on the desired date of your son, complete with a gift message and beautifully hand packed in our large wooden crates, and so your son was making use of our service as well as our products. We do hope however that your sloe bushes are now growing well, I can assure that you that the satisfactions of our customers and recipients is extremely important to us.

We chose the wine and vine box for our friends 40th Birthday...something to enjoy now and something to be a legacy for the future. He loved it!

“Excellent!”

Written on: 22/07/2013 by Preethi55 (1 review written)

I sent a Moroccan tea set for my friend in June, 2013. The Gluttonous Gardener was extremely friendly and accommodating. They were very quick in responding to my emails. I was overseas while placing the order, and had issues with placing the order. TGG were very accommodating, and made sure that my gift arrived on time. Special thanks to Sally, who was so quick in responding to my emails and so professional. I'm very happy with their service, and my friend loved the gift. Will definitely… Read Full Review

Thank you for having this lovely way to send gifts! The website was easy to use, there is a huge range, and my biggest problem was choosing between the different plants and trees. I ordered some of the trees, and although I haven't seen them the recipients were very happy. Rapid, simple service and great rustic presentation… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2013 by BJohnT (1 review written)

The Blueberry Crate went down a storm for Mother's day; very nicely presented and good produce. I was contacted within 24hours of ordering because they wanted to send me the best quality plants and those in stock were not looking great. I think there was a delay of perhaps a day, but the point is they proactively kept in touch to make sure I knew where my order was… Read Full Review

“Magnificent Mothers Day!”

Written on: 14/04/2013

The plant was packaged securely, all delivery instructions were followed and the plant itself was beautiful! The fragrance of the flowers is wonderful and heady and the recipient loved it! It is for someone who cannot garden anymore but this can be potted up and placed somewhere for years of enjoyment. Delivery was excellent AND - as the Gluttonous Gardener weren't happy with the quality of the plants they sent one by special delivery on a day that they wouldn't normally deliver on without… Read Full Review

“Always wonderfully packaged, and quality of plants is...”

Written on: 13/04/2013 by bnaomi (1 review written)

Always wonderfully packaged, and quality of plants is good. Also arrive on time. However, I think your products are extortionately priced. I ordered my mum the mint tea package, the plant was tiny (in the smallest terracotta pot you can imagine), there were 2 small glasses in the pack and the Green tea was the kind of box you can get from my local Chinese supermarket for about a £. I think what I am really paying for is the packaging so in future will put together something myself… Read Full Review
