Begonia Pendula Mix 12 Tubers

Service
Product

Service rating : Good delivery
Product: The tubers are supposed to flower in July . We are in July and the greenery is only starting to show through the tuber. At this rate they will be flowering in the Autumn .A few have not developed at all. I am very disappointed as I have no flowers as yet developed in my hanging baskets.

Service rating : People I dealt with were courteous and helpful.
Product: Plants were in an appalling condition. The replacement plants I received were equally as bad. Not much of a show in my garden this year as only a very small minority of the plants survived.

Begonia Destiny 100 Plants + 70 FREE

Service
Product

Service rating : Easy to place order and told when your plants will be despatched no complaints.
Product: I feel that the begonia are good value for money. The only downside is that unless you have facilities for growing on you can loss quite a lot due to being despatched when the weather can still turn very cold. So for that reason I wouldn't purchase again. Maybe go for the large plants the next time.

Service rating : The service was good but was let down by poor quality products - Begonia damaged
Product: The plants arrived damaged in transit, the box had been crushed, with only about 30 viable plants from the pack the rest were broken and smashed, replacements were sent but these arrived and were too leggy and although I have used them the results have been very poor

Begonia Destiny 100 Plants + 70 FREE

Service
Product

Service rating : I have always found Gardening Direct to have good quality reasonably priced products in the past.
Product: Unfortunately when the begonias arrived they were not great. However I duly potted them up in a good quality compost and took care of them in the greenhouse. Most of them did not survive and I have probably ended up with around thirty plants at most which have turned out good. Probably wouldn't have complained about that had I not received the invitation to give feedback but wouldn't buy them again as there was a lot of work involved in trying to maintain their survival.
