The David Austin rose bush I ordered, although healthy in itself, was badly packaged in a box that was far too small. It had bent and broken stems which I had to cut off leaving only half the buds it originally had. I had to keep it as I needed that particular variety Gertrude Jekyll as a birthday gift and was short of time. I was refunded the postage and subsequently only 10% for the damage when I complained again. I was very disappointed and will not be ordering again.

I purchased two lavenders last week which were in the outside area of the garden centre- I therefore presumed they were hardened off which proved not to be the case at all. Left outside overnight they succumbed to a frost and Ive had to put them in my greenhouse to try to revive them. Disappointing.

Very young plants were sent out. The Delphiniums were extremely flimsy/floppy when they arrived and haven't really improved since. The Clematis only have one stem emerging from the pot and are very small so I am not expecting much from them this year (or next) which is a shame So I have actually gone out and bought 2 of the same from my local Garden Centre that were cheaper and with lots of stems and more emerging from the base - far more established. On the whole I am very disappointed and won't be buying from yourselves in future.

One of the plants was very poorly packed and looks like it will not survive . J williams

Lovely plants but had been sent so dry and shaken up in transit that most of the compost had come out of one pot and several leaves broken off. A bit disappointed, poor courier service let them down.

After order confirmation email, no further email confirming delivery date and who the carrier would be. I had to phone you to find out when my order was to be delivered. This is standard practice for online orders that's why I have scored you low on customer satisfaction. Hope this helps. Regards David Saltern

I’m afraid to to say the plants I ordered were not packaged very well and didn’t arrive in a good state

I can’t comment on the quality of service of the old railway line garden centre. What I can say is that by using Hermes as a courier won’t help get a positive rating. 10 days after placing my order, my goods are still with Hermes, and they aren’t even out for delivery from them at the time of writing. This is unacceptable, and is in line with the dreadful slowness of Hermes I’ve experienced all through the COVID lockdown. Please use another courier!

Had many positive shopping experiences at Old Railway Line, however on this occasion the "click and collect" protocols, meant that I could not view my purchases until I got home to Merthyr Tydfil. The bulbs were of poor quality and quantity and to date show no signs of flowering, and represent poor value for money.. This will not deter me from future visits the the Garden Centre and I hope you view my comments as being constructive. Regards Peter Lewis

Unfortunately my gift did not arrive in time for a birthday present as the postage was incorrect.

the goods came and were all broken - looked like they had been sent out before and returned previously, or had been in your stock for a very long time

Very pleased with product and delivery. Thought the postage charge quite steep, about a third of the clock price

Ordered something online at weekend. On Monday phoned to say item was actually unavailable. Refund was swift though.

Stock levels on site didn’t reflect what was actually available to send which meant over half my order wasn’t delivered. The postage costs for such a light small parcel were eye wateringly steep and cost more than the order itself. That being said the items that arrived were of good quality and value and there were at least attempts to sort the matter out even if wasn’t entirely to my satisfaction.
