    Flowers and seeds

    I want to correct some of the peoples reviews on this site that Koeman is a scam, it is not and i have just received my order. Okay it was a bit later than initially promised but I spoke to Fleur on the phone and she explained that due to COVID they are seeing many challenges and an increase in orders.

    Maybe they should not have taken in so many orders but they are a busy looking to survive in hard and uncertain times so why not. I will definitely order from them in the future and I am sure their customer service speed will improve

    The plants I got look great and I am looking forward to planting them

    I agree with Callum’s review fro
    13.05.20 - my order was really delayed but it did arrive finally in perfect condition - so definitely not a scam website!

    It is indeed a true company but be sure the effects of Covid in the Netherlands are used as an excuse as they never went into lockdown and the plant bussiness has been thriving. They state they send out the deliveries with PostNL which would be taken up by Royal Mail. Instead they use some kind of cheap delivery company and hence the gross delays. They break their own terms and conditions and use excuses. Be careful with recently bought seeds and bulbs as they have probably been too hot during transport during the Dutch heatwave. They may look ok now but are unlikely to be succesful when planting out.

    You can also order flower bulbs at dutch-bulbs.com

    Plants and bulbs

    Always amazed at how i can get plants quicker from these suppliers, than i can from UK suppliers. Will always be back.

    SCAM WEBSITE

    Today after 9 emails and over 20 telephone calls all with no reply i now believe this is a scam website and i and in the process of registering this with the UK Action Fraud so i agree this is a scam DO NOT USE

    This is a Scam company do not buy from them.

    I do believe this is a scam site. I ordered bulbs from them on April 22nd. They received payment the same day and I still have not received my bulbs ( May 10 2020 ). They have not answered any of my messages. Be wary of dealing with these people !

    I had a massive delay in getting my plants but they finally arrived today in perfect condition! Way longer than I thought it would take - but it’s not a scam website - I think they’ve just been overwhelmed by demand

    I ordered a 'New Dawn' rose in April. When it arrived it was obviously dead but I planted it water and fed it but nothing. No shoots or any sign of life. I sent an e mail and received an acknowledgement promising the Company would get in touch. Despite a reminder I have heard nothing. So have now emailed the Dutch Chamber of Commerce to complain.

    Just wondered if anyone had an email address for these guys - every mail I have sent has bounced straight back? Thanks

    They are called Eva, Fleur, Helga and Sieger. They have absolutely no knowledge about plants and are terribly rude and make false claims. Furthermore they have no idea what's in their own terms and conditions and the promises that are made to the costumer on the website. For example: they promise to pay for transport back in case you are unsatisfied!

    Have ordered more tulips

    PINK CHARM DAFFODILS

    I ORDERED PINK CHARM DAFFS TO COMPLIMENT SOME DON QUICHOTTE TULIPS, AFTER WAITING PATIENTLY FOR 6 MONTHS, THEY TURNED OUT TO BE A COMMON YELLOW VARIETY. DESPITE EMAILING THEM & BEING TOLD THEY ARE DEALING WITH MY QUERY, WHICH THEY DIDHN'T I THEN EMAILED THEM AGAIN REQUESTING A REFUND, A MONTH LATER NO REPLY. SO THIS COULD BE A SCAM, I PAID 7.99 FOR A 2.99 PACK OF BULBS. I DEMANDED A REFUND....AS YOU CAN IMAGINE...NO REPLY. VERY IGNORANT & ARROGANT. I WILL NEVER USE AGAIN & WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW WHY

    Perennial plants

    This company is disreputable. Do not order from them. They have been cynically sending orders overseas during Covid knowing that there is a good chance of long delays and dead damaged plants on arrival. They do NOT honour their bogus guarantees of good quality plants and excellent customer service. You will get no automatic apology and refund should this fate befall you. You will struggle to get any response from them when you complain about your unsatisfactory order and eventually ,after many emails and much hassle you will be told to ship back your plants at your own expense for a refund. You would be foolish to do this since they have no sense of honour and no customer service to speak of.
    They are charlatans .

    120 pounds worth of perennial plants

    Absolute disgrace. The order should have arrived withing 3-6 workdays after payment. It was sent out more than a week later, during the Dutch heatwave and then it took another 2 weeks to arrive. Koeman garden centre did not inform me of the delay. After contacting them to ask for the order to be cancelled after being 1.5 week in transport, my request was denied. I should take pictures of the state the plants were in on arrival. So I did. The plants were mostly turned into a brown mush. The plants which were still kind of alive were covered in mold. I asked for my money back. They asked for more pictures twice, probably to buy time. As I threw them away after making the pictures as they were very surely not in a state to put in your garden, they then told me I was dumb to throw them away and I was only going to get my money back if I would send them back, on my own costs, although the website states they pay for the transfer back if unsatisfied. Absolutely appalling costumer service and indeed the worst quality 'plants' I have ever received

    Would definately not buy here again, missed that button

    Large flower order

    We placed a very large £250 flower order to kit out our garden. It arrived extremely late and the geraniums were all yellow and twiggy, which had to be thrown away, the lavender and heather was so tiny and for the same price as a much larger plant in the shop. Also the foxgloves and clematis were dead and had to be thrown. Terrible quality and not cost effective at all. Also we emailed customer service as soon as they arrived for some assistances and are yet to hear back. We’d planted the flowers in case they survived but have had to buy all new plants again to replace them. Very disappointing

    Bougainvillea plant

    I would never buy anything from these people again. I asked for help for a plant that is failing, and they have completely ignored me. I have had not one word by way of advice or even just to say they can't help. Dreadful Customer Service. Only buy if you don't need any!!

    Seeds

    this company is a scam, do not buy from them. They take your money pretend that they have dispatched your items. They are never delivered and it is impossible to contact them and even if you fill out their enquiry forms they do not answer. DO NOT trade with them they will only comment fraud against you.

    Large order of plants, root trees, shrubs.

    Only 1/10th of my order arrived and it was short.
    Appreciate virus is an issue, but if you're going to post orders, post the whole lot or not at all.
    Basically paid £200 for something that would cost £69.
    No answer from them. No contact via email.
    Not happy and will attempt to retrieve my money from my bank, due to products paid for not supplied. Trading standards could do with investigating further. Will seek advice.

    Have you had any luck in receiving your money back from your bank ?

    Boxhedging

    SCAM - please do not use this website. I ordered Boxhedging and haven’t received my order for over three weeks! No contact for 2.5 weeks! Kept writing enquires via their website contact form
    And they never reply. Sent over 10 contact form enquires asking for clarification then sent only one reply to say my product is delayed and would contact me in 4 days! Guess what 7 days later and still no reply or refund after I have continually asked to cancel my order and refund my money in full. I spent over £113 on boxhedging! All numbers supplied on website just ring out, I even rung and texted the Holland number with still no response ! I repeat - THIS IS A SCAM WEBSITE ! Please please don’t get caught up with their SCAM AND AVOID AT ALL COSTS !

    Clearly unhappy with the customer service and definitely believe this website is a scam ! So with that said I didn’t mean to put Yes for “would you buy here again” the answer is clearly NO ! Please do not buy from this website !

    Plants

    Avoid at all costs order was placed end of March didn’t get delivery until back end of April after having to chase the order. In arrival there was soil and labels all over the packaging as the pots were not labelled up I couldn’t tell which was which, the plants had all been squashed in there pots you could barely see a couple plus they were in atrocious state looked like somebody had just taken cuttings and stuffed them in a pot! Very very poor I would be embarrassed putting these in my garden. I forgot to say one plant was missing also! Contacted them and was asked if I could plant them and wait a few weeks there literally was nothing to plant. I asked about returning the goods but they informed me I would have to pay for the postage to return them which because their plants was going to cost me approx £16? So I wasn’t prepared to pay this a pointless and time wasted exercise so I am now left with shoddy goods which are destined for the bin do not waste your money I’m over £50 down. What I thought were plants were bulbs which were in poor state also not a good experience at all. Would not recommend.

Basic dating tips to consider

If you’re single and looking for love, it’s important to make sure you are searching for a partner with the right approach. The way you begin a relationship can greatly impact the way the relationship unfolds. To make sure you are good and ready to start dating again and building a healthy, strong bond, here are some important aspects you can take into account when you start dating again:

What is a healthy relationship?
Figure out what a healthy relationship is to you. There are many ways to relate to people, however, there are certain qualities that make for healthy relationships like mutual respect, trust, honesty, maintaining a meaningful connection and good communication. 

Analyze your expectations
When we start looking for a romantic relationship, many of us do so with a predetermined set of expectations as to how the person should be, how they should treat us and what role they will play, what the relationship will give back to us and how it will make us feel. Usually our family, friends and society conditions us to think that relationships should be a certain way. It’s important to reconsider these and discard the ones that are not healthy or will not serve you well in the relationship. 

Needs and wants
Wants can be negotiated, needs are not. It’s important to distinguish these. For example, wants can be related to their physical attributes or their profession, but if you take these wants too seriously you can limit your choices too much. Needs are different, they have to do with those core qualities and character that you look for in a relationship, such as their values, ethics or what their objectives in life are. These will turn out to be essential as you get deeper into a relationship.

Be intuitive
When looking for the right person, forget what looks right or seems right. Forget what your parents, best friend or people in general think is right. Focus on what feels right. Take time to get to know the person, see how they act in difficult situations and how they relate to you, and trust your gut feeling about them. No one will know best what’s good for you than yourself. 

Be honest about your own flaws
Everyone has them, and it’s important to base your relationship on honesty so as not to create unrealistic expectations about who you’d like to be or who that person thinks you should be. Also, try to remember that what may seem like a really big flaw to you may not be such a bad thing for another person and they may even find it endearing. This may also help encourage the other person to be more open to you about their own flaws, which will create a healthier relationship.

Enjoy yourself
Enjoy your life as a single person. Consider all the positive things it brings! Learn to distance yourself from the idea that being single is a bad thing and try to grow as much as you can so you don’t enter a relationship asking a partner to provide for things that you are more than able to give yourself. Focus on making yourself happy and having fun in the process, it will set the conditions for a great relationship to come!
