“Paid 30 pounds for 18 9cm pot grown perennials. Dead...”

Written on: 06/06/2020 by Daxo180 (1 review written)

Paid 30 pounds for 18 9cm pot grown perennials. Dead on delivery. When I told them about this they asked for photographic evidence, by email. Then explained to me that the crispy brown bits were in fact last years growth and that they are healthy and I should plant them on. Utter nonsense and quite insulting. But what a great way to make money, if you are without morals. A disgrace to the horticultural world. The overcomplicated communication policies are clearly in place to put you off… Read Full Review

“Didn't get what I paid for.”

Written on: 26/05/2020 by DawnBea (1 review written)

Purchased 3 peony roots online and planted them. Peonies take a year or two to flower. After 1 year, one of the peonies had flowered, but it was the wrong flower. It might have been a fluke, so I waited ANOTHER year. This year, a different root also flowered and it is the wrong flower! Emailed and Facebook messaged, and been ignored. I’ve been waiting for 2 years, and then some for a reply at least (sorry it’s not our problem, or we got your email and we can’t do anything about it), but… Read Full Review

“Awful quality plants and expensive”

Written on: 06/04/2020 by JakaylaBlackburn (1 review written)

I spent £126 on shrubs, received early April. Nine were bare rooted and had clearly been removed from growing medium months ago. The roots were shrivelled and the stems, which were all hard and dead, had been cut back to 30 cms as if they were raspberry canes. This is so wrong for the shrubs in question which should have delicate arching branches. The 'tree', Malus John Downie, was pot grown but had been given the same treatment. Two spindly stems, 60cm high, go out at 45 degrees which makes… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 08/06/2019 by Steve25071953 (1 review written)

Purchased Antik Geraniums acknowledged order and told delivery albeit 3 weeks late did not arrive even when Hermes said delivered to my door, nothing arrived, called Parkers got the usual "horse manure?" and agreed to repay my account, never happened nor will.

“Rubbish Customer Service - Rubbish Response Time”

Written on: 05/06/2019 by suejin (1 review written)

Ordered 18 euphobia silver fog on 27 April. When they weren't delivered I called and was told that they would be delivered the following week. Three weeks later I called again and was told that they would be delivered the first week of June. Finally, I received a letter dated 31 June advising that they were unable to fulfil my order. I'm very disappointed and having trouble finding another company to supply them at this late stage of the season. At the same time, I ordered some other plants… Read Full Review

“Great plants and service”

Written on: 04/06/2019

I have ordered from Jparkers for a number of years for begonia devil mixed for boxes on my narrow boat as they only grow to 20cm, the display has always been fabulous and people comment on it every day. The plants arrived yesterday in tip top condition and are planted in containers ready to go. I have purchased garden plants from them and they are always excellent… Read Full Review

“Shockingly poor quality”

Written on: 12/05/2019 by 283Self (1 review written)

I ordered 10 bareroot roses and a limelight hydrangea from J Parkers. I was concerned that it was getting close to the 28 days maximum delivery period and also coming up to Easter. I rang Parkers to be told, not to worry, the plants had not been picked yet. They arrived on Tuesday, the day after the Bank Holiday. The roses looked completely dried out as if they had been in the box for days and the hydrangea is a completely pathetic specimen of a plant for the price. For £10 you can get a… Read Full Review

“I placed an order for hanging basket plants on 10th...”

Written on: 12/05/2019 by Matha (1 review written)

I placed an order for hanging basket plants on 10th February and received the items after 3 months, on 9th May although the website stated the plants will be delivered within 14-21 days. I'm really disappointed with this service as I could have spent this money on plants that are already grown from a garden centre, whereas they have sent them after 3 months in 3cm size! … Read Full Review

“Interesting place but some things too expensive”

Written on: 06/05/2019 by JEFF350 (1 review written)

We went to buy a couple of shrubs (which we did) and were reasonably priced and the staff in the outdoor area were very helpful.Whilst there we decided to go to the cafe area. I ordered two beans on toast and two teas. This came to nearly £12 including service charge? They have a new dog area (a couple of small alcoves) so we put the dog there and ordered the 'meal'. Noticed there was no water in the dog bowl, the woman behind the counter said she would be over to fill it, never came over so i… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2019 by Brogane133 (1 review written)

I ordered Snowdrops in the green. They were left not at my house but somewhere else in the village. No card through my door saying were they where. I found them the day after and they WERE BAD. Not in the green but in the DIARRHEA. No flowers at all THEY WERE DEAD. Do not deal with them. M.Mason… Read Full Review

“Awful Service”

Written on: 30/11/2018 by PaulHawkins143 (1 review written)

Awful service. Did not deliver within the stated 28 days, communication by customer services is poor. Insisted on delivery to property, even though I informed them I would no longer be there and, as they had not delivered within the 28 days, would like a refund. They want me to pay to send their plants back. Have emailed the manager for a refund. … Read Full Review

“terrible service and product”

Written on: 21/11/2018 by thom67778 (1 review written)

I ordered a Eucalyptus plant which arrived a month after I ordered it. I complained about the lateness of the delivery and was told that it was due to the time when the company 'picks' the plant. This was not explained during purchase. The plant arrived half dried and half dead which fully died within a week. I complained and received a replacement, this was in worse condition than the previous:the stick used to support the plant had cracked along with the plastic pot. I sent photos of this… Read Full Review

There is NO QUALITY CONTROL whatsoever, if you complain, there is really rude lady in Manchester office who says if you not happy buy elsewhere.... YES!!! we took your advice and now very happy with our new wholesaler. For those still buying from Parkers Wholesale, COUNT YOUR BULBS as always supplied short even in pre-counted bags of 50 crocus, your lucky to get about 40 in the bag...

“Happy with ground cover plants”

Written on: 24/04/2018 by Tiffanya288 (1 review written)

I got these plugs before winter and they are all thriving despite not being able to get any horticultural grit or new compost in. I ran out of pots, too, hence some plants had to share space. The packaging was perfect - the plants were well protected when they arrived. I had six free phlox paniculata bare roots, too. Four are not very much alive and two unfortunately failed to survive. They are freebies, so, I have no complaints at all. There is nothing to complain about service or products or… Read Full Review
