Ayers and Graces

Beautiful Mirrors

I have a large white ornate bevelled mirror from this company, it is a stunning mirror that goes perfectly with my décor. I have had it a few years now, it gets a lot of compliments for a mirror! Delivery was speedy, item was well packaged with great customer services. Yes the mirrors are expensive but definitely worth the price as the quality is excellent.


Best ever linen.

I have ordered 100% pure linen bedlinen from Givans and have to say the quality is superb, there is nothing better than sleeping in linen and I found Givans to be very well priced, fast delivery and very efficient service. I know that pure linen is expensive but it is a worthwhile investment as it will last years and the best part is it just gets better with every wash! I definitely recommend this company.


This is the first time I have shopped at gardentoolbox but I can honestly say I will be going back, goods were dispatched quickly, 1 item was out of stock but I have been kept well informed and it will be delivered in a few days. I love that they sell Elho products which are quite difficult to buy in this country and yet they are some of the best on the market. I would highly recommend this company for any keen gardener.


Don't Bother!

I ordered two books 2 months ago, one book was delivered and it stated that the other book would be available in 1 to 2 weeks, two months on I still haven't received the book. I sent an email yesterday asking for any information regarding when I might expect delivery or any info at all, I had checked the website information regarding the book again and it still stated 1 to 2 weeks for delivery, I received a response email today stating that the order had been cancelled as per MY request! I didn't request my order be cancelled at all, I just wanted some info about it. This has happened before, made an order that totalled nearly £90 in books and I only ever received one of the titles ordered, think I will shop elsewhere from now on. I used to buy all my books from WHSmith and they were at one time a great company, such a pity that they couldn't keep it up.


Excellent Bamboo's

I purchased a couple of bamboo's from here a couple of years ago, I went to this company because they sell such a wide range of bamboo plants. My items were delivered quickly and in excellent condition so this year I wanted a couple more bamboo's plus a nice fern and so this is the first place I looked, they had exactly what I wanted so have made my order. I would definitely recommend this company to fellow bamboo lovers out there. Ltd

Great For Me

I have been buying from crocus for some years now, I have read some of the other more negative reviews and can't believe this is the same company! I have never had a problem with crocus customer service, I have had about three bad plants, one broken, one died, one never showed itself as it should have done come spring, in every instance crocus either replaced the plant or refunded the money without any fuss at all. I have purchased every single plant in my garden from crocus and my garden is blooming and growing beautifully. I know if I need advice about any of my plants I can send them an email and I am given all the help I need. I find them to be first rate, not only for the plants but all the other products they sell too. Had another delivery today and everything is fine, am really pleased with my order and I would recommend crocus to friends and family, in fact I already have, lol.


Great company

I have only shopped with this company online three times and everytime my items have been dispatched promptly and in excellent condition. They keep you up to date on your parcel status and you can also track your order online. A bonus is the free shipping when you spend just £30, an absolute bargain, I purchased two forest raised beds from them and they were the cheapest place for sale online. I would definitely recommend this company as they have a great range of products at great prices. I intend to purchase another 3 raised beds and I know where I will be shopping for them.

Terence Paul Online

Excellent Service

Purchased Redken All Soft conditioner 1000ml, a really great size at a really great price, as long as they have this product in stock I will definitely shop there again. Product was delivered very quickly and it was free shipping. Overall very pleased.


Great place to buy

I made my first order last week, prices were very competitive and delivery was very fast. I have made a second order today and have no doubt the service will be the same. I highly recommend this company for cost and delivery, one of the best online tool companies I have ever used.

Jacksons Fencing

A really great place to buy.

I purchased the heavy post and rail fencing through B&Q nearly 3 years ago at a great price, I realised that no corner posts were included so I called Jacksons Fencing directly and they let me add some corner posts to my order from B&Q, they didn't charge me any extra for delivery, the customer care were very helpful. With my fencing I received the nails and a pot of Jackure which is used to treat the places where cutting or drilling is necessary, using this also keeps up your 25 year guarantee! I have to say I was really impressed with the quality of the fencing and I know a lot of my neighbours admire it, i installed it as soon as it was delivered and because it is pre treated with Jackure I have never had to treat it since. Delivery was very quick and the the delivery man was very pleasant and helpful. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who wants really good quality fencing.

Marble Sculpture

Could have been better!

I purchased the bust of Diana as a Christmas gift for my Mother, they called and instead of speaking to me they spoke to her to let her know my order had been shipped, unbelievable! No surprises this Christmas, I sent them an email to say I wasn't happy about what they had done, no response forthcoming. The bust arrived and it is beautiful, however it states 38cm on the website, the one I received is 32cm, I also expected to receive the stand she is placed on as it didn't state the stand wasn't supplied, no stand arrived. I haven't bothered to email about the size discrepancy as I received no response regarding my last email. I had to laugh though when 5 days ago I received an email stating my item had been shipped, it has been sitting in my Mothers lounge since Christmas day! Not the best experience I have ever had and I think I will purchase from another supplier I know who delivers the items as stated and without giving the game away.


Don't waste your money!

I ordered a humorous mug as a thank you for my Orthopaedic Surgeon who had just got me through a tricky operation. Its not the done thing to buy very expensive gifts so I thought this mug would be just the thing. It arrived today and have to say am very disappointed, it is a very basic mug for the fact it cost more than £15, the script is straight on the front but crooked on the back, it doesn't even come in its own box, a complete waste of money in my opinion and I will NEVER shop there again.

Great Shopping with them.

Hi there, this is the first time I have purchased from shedstore and will definitely be shopping there again, quick and easy transaction, item arrived on schedule and I was kept up to date about my order via email. The Gardman wood large planter arrived intact, no pieces missing and no damage at all. Have previously purchased two of these planters elsewhere and both arrived with missing parts, but from shedstore everyting was as it should be. Good doing business with them. Oh, and the price was better than anywhere else!

Thanks for the review. I hope the Great British weather becomes more favorable so you can use the planter to its fullest.


Item's were delivered very quickly, order arrived within two days, very well packaged and in tip top condition, didn't receive a delivery email but not really bothered about this.
Would definitely recommend Great Gardens Online to anyone and will for sure be ordering from them again myself.
