Wow!!! Excellent service!!! Ordered on Friday, excellent and immediate confirmation and communication, received on Saturday morning (next day!) before 8am! Absolutely delighted and very highly recommend!!! Very many thanks!
It's great that when I can't get gardening products locally the garden shop is there and ready to supply my garden needs.

Many thanks for such effortless 'shopping'!
It's my first time using perlite but it looked good. Mixed very nicely with my soil for cactus and even other plants to help them with airflow and drainage. So far plants seem happy. Definitely will buy again.
Well packed and quick delivery
Brilliant service
Order received within 24hrs. Perfect transaction. I will be doing more business with The Garden Shop. Sellers highly recommended.
