“Cracking Crocus!”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by MacLean1972 (1 review written)

A clear and refreshing site. Friendly approach incl. photo and name of person dealing with your order. Prompt delivery, well packaged and healthy plants. A little more expensive than the previous site that I purchased from but worth it for better quality plants… Read Full Review

“Always very happy”

Written on: 16/06/2014

I have probably spent thousands over the years ordering direct from Crocus. I agree not always the cheapest but only very rarely have I not been impressed by the quality of the plants. I recently lost a clematis from them and they emailed me on sunday ( a day after sending the pic of the dead plant) to say a replacement is out this week. If you use some of the other online plant providers you will understand what bad customer service and poor quality plants are. I cant recommend highly enough… Read Full Review

“Fab! An amazing business ”

Written on: 27/06/2013

Amazing healthy plants delivery always as promised and plants arrive in spectacular condition as well as extremely well packaged. The Myrtle I ordered has already grown two inches within a week! I also ordered a Clematis which Crocus decided not to send as they were concerned about the quality and they organized a refund immediately! Brilliant service would certainly recommend to anyone… Read Full Review

“BEST EVER ONLINE PLANTS”

Written on: 18/03/2013

I have received my first order from Crocus.co.uk this morning and cannot rate the company highly enough. Firstly they arrived well within the timescale I was expecting. All plants were so well packaged and marked up very clearly to ensure they were delivered in excellent condition. The plants I ordered are in great condition and ready for the garden (if only the snow would stop!!). I have ordered from other garden website before and can honestly say this is definitely the best I have dealt… Read Full Review

“Crocus: as good as a garden centre”

Written on: 05/09/2012

I first used Crocus a few years ago, and I wasn't that impressed with them. However, I am planting up a large flowerbed and wanted a particular grass that I could only find on their site, so I thought I would give them another go. The plants were ordered three days ago, and they arrived this morning. Unlike some other companies, these are full sized plants not tiny plants to grow on, and they all arrived in great condition. In the past I ordered plants from other much cheaper online… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2012

The grass I wanted was Molinia caerulea subsp. Heidebraut, which I am sure must be for sale elsewhere, but I contacted a couple of places I found on the RHS plant finder, and they were out of stock. Crocus were selling large plants for under £5 . It is a fabulous grass, wonderful colour and the three plants I purchased even had some 'flowers' on them.

“Great plants, fast delivery”

Written on: 03/08/2011 by lanesova (1 review written)

Buying plants from a website or through mail order is tricky. It's like leaving the vegetable shopping to the vagueries of the on-line shop; you don't get to have a good look at the stock and choose the one that is perfect. So I haven't bought plants on line before. However, in this instance, I was looking for a particular plant that I couldn't find locally. The range of plants available through Crocus was good, although not exhaustive. However, I spotted a couple of other plants that I had… Read Full Review

Beautiful website with a huge amount of help and advice. My order was due within 2 weeks and I was a little worried due to other reviews regarding the delivery times but my order came within 1 week. Was very well packed and all in good shape (even though the delivery man droped the box off the van). Over all, very please and will be ordering from Crocus again… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2011

This is the first time I've used Crocus, I've been very impressed. The plants were delivered within 3 days of placing the order and were all of very good quality. The service team were v adaptable, as I changed my mind twice in 24hrs (!) and they are happy to adjust the order accordingly. They also rang me to tell me they unfortunately couldn't deliver an item, because the stock they had was not of a good enough quality to send out. I liked that....not prepared to send out rubbish so would… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2011

We have shopped with Crocus over a number of years, and have always found their speed of response, their packing and despatch and their customer service first class. Anything that was faulty (a rare occurrence) was immediately replaced. The quality of their plants is excellent, and they are hardened off and ready to go in - not always the case with other providers. They are also very charming in correspondence! Five star… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2011

I was relandscaping a small back garden with limited knowledge and experience. Having stumbled across the Crocus website I particularly liked, and found extremely helpful, the planting suggestions that accompanied plant choices I was looking at. I was also able to get further planting ideas by indicating site conditions e.g. shady corner, dry wall, etc. Each plant choice had plenty of information to help me make an informed decision before purchase. As a novice gardener I found the website very… Read Full Review

Excellent quality bulbs and have had plants and bulbs in the green from crocus in the past. Also a lot cheaper than buying them in the shops. Delivery quick and packaging excellent. Even the most delicate plants remained unscathed. The website is easy to use even for the novice. If you have any problem areas and do not know what to plant the sight will give you loads of options and suggestions. Love this site, in fact i spend too much time looking at it. Excellent quality, delivery and i… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2011 by Roly62 (1 review written)

I regularly use the Crocus website to glean information about specific plants, good plant combinations, what's fashionable, what grows best where, what they look like, and what price I should expect to pay. You can order on line, and the plants arrive on time, well packaged, and undamaged, healthy, and with instructions for care and planting. I would like it if they sold a greater number of larger plants, they tend to mostly be in 2 litre containers, and are always quite small in height, but I… Read Full Review
