I have dealt with DOBIES for many years, so did my father and grandfather, back to the days when they were in Llangollen and the packets were brown if I remebr correctly.
So I must be satisfied both with the seeds and nowdays plug plants every year to make my garden really attractive.
ordered this new variety of strawberry having seen a program about it on t.v. the plants arrived promptly and were well packaged. they were small but this was to be expected. I immediately potted them up into 3" pots and put them on the patio. hoping lots of new growth will start in spring. can't really award stars till I see how they perform.
I thought the ordering and delivery service was very good, but the quality of the plant I received was very disappointing considering I waited for new stocks to come in.
The plant was dropping all its leaves that had turned a nasty scorched and brown colour. I did phone up straight away, but was told I had to wait until spring to see if it comes back.
This was not the answer I was expecting, and as this was my first order, a bit of a shock,
the only place that stocked the primroses that I wanted. The plugs were very small but qudrupled in size within a fortnight of planting - very healthy plants.
No matter what I ask you I always get a very good answer. Dobies always help. I have never had a problem with any seeds or plants.
Dobies sell top quality seed and plants. Their seed germination rate is excellent ( my Grandfather was a seed merchant) he always claimed you only get good quality plants from good quality seed he did business with Samuel Dobies.
Although not a fanatical gardener I have had a garden and allotment for many years. I have found Dobies products to be trustworthy and mostly successful. Indeed when I have made comment on products I have received sympathetic and useful response.
Gardening with Dobies of Devon is so easy - look at what they have, choose (the most difficult part), order, receive your delivery, read instructions, plant, water and watch your garden grow - No problem!
If you're not happy the contact the DoD team. No one will shout and say it's your fault or avoid the issue and even when your report is minor they go hell for leather to ensure you get replacements for the whole batch and not just one or two extras to keep you quiet.
In short gardening is Dobies!
I've shopped with them for years as they were the people my parents always got their seeds from. I have never had a bad quality plant from them. The plants are a decent size, healthy and don't die after a short while like some other plants supplied by other companies. The seeds produce a good number of plants. I've never had a problem with them.
I was a bit dissapointed with the qulaity of the plants when they arrived looked 1/2 dead, but then I did order at a very cheep price so maybe thats to be expected. However after a bit of t&c they turned out ok in th end.
This company give a reliable, straightforward service with clearly stated invoice/product info/instructions and no wastage on over-designed labelling/packaging.
I have had several orders with dobies all delivered on or before the due date. everything has been top notch and at a great price. if your not sure about anything they are very helpful. I will be dealing with them again that's the best recommendation I can give.
I can't tell you how pleased I was with the beautiful plant I bought online from Dobies of Devon. They delivered it so quickly - and it was just the best quality I have seen for the price. It was packaged so well so it was protected during transport - I really recommend this company!

Very pleased with the service
