“.Generally Good.”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by WilsonSmith318 (1 review written)

Crocus supply online a large selection of quality plants. Early ordering in the year is recommended as they sell out quite quickly of many popular plants. Sometimes you do received the wrong variety, but if you send the a photograph of the plant you do receive a full refund. The plants are overpriced sometimes. But delivery is inexpensive and plants well packed. The best overall garden plants company on the U.K internet… Read Full Review

“Good service”

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

My order fro Crocus arrived very very well packed, beautiful plants. I had a concern with 2 plants emailed crocus and they got straight back to me. They offered a full refund, so my concerns were sorted within a few hours. Excellent customer service. I have also ordered crocus stock through Waitrose and again excellent packaging, and excellent plants. Would use again, in fact I have placed another order… Read Full Review

“Very efficient and nice plants”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by ArabellaGarrett280 (1 review written)

The plants came in 3 days. They were well packed and the plants were very good. They were at the correct stage of growth for the variety at this time of year - not the overblown forced plants you get from a garden centre. If I had one gripe, the order telephone number was I think a more expensive number and the lady who took the order wasn't familiar with the names of the plants and I had to keep repeating the names and spelling some… Read Full Review

“Good online company”

Written on: 05/08/2013 by Deardeer (2 reviews written)

I've used a dozen online plant companies, amongst them, Crocus is by far the best in terms of the Contact-ability, speed of delivery and quality of plant. The value for money side is not so great comparing to local nursery, especial when you take into account of the delivery charge. I read some previous reviews about the size of the plants and damaged plant in transport. It will happen when you are shopping online. You don't always get what you think you will get. I used to order flowers… Read Full Review

You have such a superb range of plants ( which is what I mainly use the site for. Have to be careful not to spend too much, but having a one off delivery charge is a HUGE bonus and great incentive.

Everything I have received has been excellently packaged.

Only wish I could come in help with computer update but it's a little too far to travel. Good luck… Read Full Review

High quality plants; good variety. Prompt delivery in very good condition. Easy website with very attractive photos and good information, and suggestions for companion planting. Often they have unusual plants that you can't get in standard garden centres. Good offers… Read Full Review

I am a fan of the website it is brilliant for helping decide what to plant; and I have referred many clients to it when advising about garden design and planting schemes in particular. The inspirational and fun presentation and regular reminders keep me very interested in the company and regard it as the leading 'Fashion' guru for gardening!… Read Full Review

Very happy with purchase, arrived quickly and has lasted very well. I'm often complimented on it in my garden. Did think price was a little high initially but as product has lasted so well (still looks new after 2 years) I now think definitely worth it… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2011

I have purchased several items over the years, with both the service and quality of stock being good. Had a couple of issues with plant quality in the past, but nothing serious enough to put me off. Overall I would recommmend them. The packaging of living goods is very well thought-through - they care!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2011

I came to Crocus via BBC Garden magazine when there was an offer for plants. I have had great satisfaction from the plants ordered. The plants were in a good state of health and adapted to my garden very well. We garden on clay soil in a low lying area near the river. It's very windy and temperatures range from 20c in summer to -12.5c this winter plus 10" of snow. We do get -8c most winters.

Delivery and the packaging of plants was excellent. I like the way the company kept me up to date… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

The company offers a good choice of plants, reasonable delivery terms, and a friendly customer service. I bought several plants, only one hasn't quite turned out to be what I expected. I always check Crocus website if I have an idea, but not sure which plant to choose as there is a very convinient option on the site which enables you to narrow a search… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

I have used Crocus for a number of years and have found the quality of plants and other gardeners items to be good. Delivery of orders has always been excellent - usually well within the timescales indicated. I tend to buy annuals locally but choose Crocus for permanent planting because the description for each plant and it's requirements for site and after care are very detailed but easy to follow… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

Excellent website making the job of chosing plants a simple task. Photos and descriptions are first class as is the search facility. The plants arrive packed perfectly - perhaps that's why they seem rather costly at first glance. We have also used the cut flower service which is fine if a little pricey. Overall a most reliable company both in terms of the quality of their products and the delivery service - worth paying that little bit extra… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011 by reeterry (2 reviews written)

Might be pricier than your local garden centre but this isn't about the money so much as the whole experience. Crocus is basically plantlust, gorgeous pictures and luscious plants.
The cut flowers are lovely too, some of the nicest I've found online so far. I find crocus inspires me with new plant ideas, they do carry a good range of more unusual plants, different colours and varieties. I particularly love the range of dark geraniums from last year.
The website feature enabling you to search… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

O often recommend Crocus to friends because my experience has been good. The plants are in good shape, they are well packaged, and the choice offered is pretty good. My only problem is with the delivery. I don't have a "safe place", and because I don't know when the delivery is coming I am sometimes out when the plants arrive. The driver usually leaves the plants in my front yard, which is insecure. Nothing has been stolen so far, but it would really help if Crocus could give an indication… Read Full Review

The first time I used them I was unsure what I would get and was really surprised to have the items delivered a week earlier than promised.

All went well in the garden and the plants were of a good quality with no damage and were healthy.

A similar quality of service with the second delivery and am now a committed user… Read Full Review

Crocus is great - at first prices seem expensive, but you find that you'll receive a better quality of plant which is very well packaged. They also stock some of the best ranges you'll find, particularly the tropical/exotic plants. I keep going back year on year… Read Full Review
