Hi, I received my order today and I just wanted to say thanks and let you know I am very happy with my first purchase from you. I have ordered from other websites and am more than impressed with the quality, price (p&p a tad too high though) and packing. Thanks again.

Yesterday my 3 lilies arrived.

I find those so prime quality that I thought I should send you my best thanks.

Just wanted to say a big thank you. We’re highly delighted with the quality of the plants! The enclosed information and especially the covering letter was lovely. I’m really impressed by your customer service even though we are experiencing difficult times.

Best wishes to you and success to your company!

Dorothy Wall

They have just arrived ,looking fabulous. Have fed them and will let them rest in water, and will put in basket tomorrow. Thank you for such great service.


Edwin R Fine


Just thought I would let you know how pleased I am with the delivery of Ferns you sent.

All of the plants arrived within 2 days and they were well packaged and provided excellent protection for the plants. The plants themselves were very healthy and ready to plant.

Keep up the good work in these worrying times.

Kind regards

Simon Roocroft

Many thanks once again

Dear Simon

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the bumper parcel of plants which arrived safely, very well packed, on Tuesday.

Everything planted and all looking good. – the floating planters look fabulous.

It was George Watt of Drongan, Ayrshire, who recommended I should buy pond plants from you.

I hope your business continues to thrive.

With best wishes

Hi Simon,

We wanted to let you know we received the water lilies etc and we were extremely pleased with them. They were perfectly packed and still looking fresh. We followed instructions and got them planted in the baskets and into the pond the same afternoon.

We are really looking forward to them spreading and flowering.

Also wanted to thank you for your 1st Class customer service. You went the extra mile to make sure we got what we wanted and were very helpful with your advice and follow up so quickly.

Bless you all for keeping your customers happy through these trying times!

Thank you again

Kind regards

Clive Hamilton


My plants arrived yesterday.

They were beautifully packed and in excellent condition. A huge contrast to one if the big players from whom I ordered some bedding plant plugs – 50% of those were shrivelled up on arrival.

Thanks very much. I expect to be ordering again soon.


Dear Simon,

Our plants, pots and gravel arrived this afternoon. They are already planted up and in the pond. Lovely lovely plants in beautiful condition, and brilliant service all round. We can’t wait to see them all growing.

All the very best,

David Laverty

Just to say thank you for another supply of healthy plants.

I have spoken to the Community Gardener at Houghton Hall gardens and shown her the plants you have supplied me. She was very impressed with the quality, so it is likely she will accept my recommendation of using Lilies to provide plants for the wildlife pond project due to start later this year

Many thanks for excellent service


I just wanted to compliment you on the quality of your plants and the wonderful way they were packed. I also like the clear instructions of what to do with each plant as it is all new to me (even though I am OAP). Thank you once again and I shall look forward to watching them grow.

Maureen Malley

Order received, Many thanks for extremely prompt service. Well packaged and plants as expected- great value too.

Thank you.


Hi Simon,

Thanks very much for the bog plants you sent me a week or so ago. They arrived in tip top condition and have now been planted. They look happy, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how they grow and flower. See photo.

Best wishes,


I just wanted to say thank you so much for the efficiency of dealing with my order during times that are very testing for everyone. The plants I received were in excellent condition and I am looking forward to see them flowering in my garden pond.

Stay safe and many thanks.

Moira Allan

Order arrived today. Thank you to you and your staff for working. Stay safe.


Just wanted to thank you for my order that you so kindly replaced for me after the original one was lost in the post, it arrived safely today in a beautiful healthy condition, can’t thank you enough for your excellent customer service, and understanding, hope your business continues to grow and prosper

Regards Pam Pedder


My order of Irises arrived safely today. They look like very good strong, healthy plants. I am very much looking forward to seeing how they get on.
Thank you for the excellent service, especially in these difficult times. Hope you all stay well.

Best Regards

Hi Simon and your team

Just to say how impressed I am with the plants that were delivered today.
They arrived well packed and in perfect condition.

I am stocking a wildlife pond in my garden which I filled six weeks ago and already bugs and newts have moved in.

I am a volunteer at Houghton Hall Gardens where we will be building a wildlife pond as part of a wider community project later this year and.I am going to recommend Lilies to the head gardener as a potential supplier for the plants.



Good afternoon,

I would like to thank you for my order that I recieved earlier this week.
The plants were all in perfect condition and were better than anything I have ordered online before and I have tried quite a few places this year.

Kind regards


Hello Simon,

I have just received my order (above) and I wanted to let you know how
pleased I am with the quality and careful packaging of the plants.

I will definitely be ordering from you again (as soon as I have planted
these) and will recommend Lilies to others without hesitation.

Thank you very much indeed,



Thank you very much for the Thalia dealbata that was quickly sent,
beautifully packed and is now ensconced in the garden pond.

Kind regards,

David Spilsbury

Hi ,

Just a note to say Thank You! My order for three varieties of Pontaderia were delivered this morning and have all now been potted up.

Kind regards,

Dave Hall

Dear Simon

I just have to wrote to tell you how thrilled I was with my plants which arrived today. They are in superb health and were securely packed so they suffered no damage whilst in the post.

Having been dependant upon online shopping for all my gardening needs throughout the lockdown it was a joy to finally get plants of this quality

Many thanks




Just to say thank you very much.

The quality of my plants is superb, have only they have only been in the water a few days and already there is growth. Also the Ranunculus Aquatilis is starting to flower.

Just to say that I am really pleased with the plants that you supplied, all planted back in early March and the Lilies that I had planted at 85cm deep have all pushed up leaves to the surface.

Thank you. 🙂

Dear Lilies Water Gardens,

May I just say a Big Thank You for my order of water lilies and Japanese Iris Ensata…. they arrived yesterday lovely healthy plants, beautifully packed and in perfect condition.

We have planted everything today in baskets with aquatic compost and they all look very happy. We will be lowering the water lilies down to the correct depth slowly so the leaves and stems can extend.

Thank you so much for such fabulous service.

Kindest regards,
Sarah Bushnell

Thank you all for your help, advice and service.

It was a pleasure to complete this small purchase and I so much appreciated being able to collect the plants in person even though the Nursery was only open for collections and not for general viewings.

I plan to buy many more plants next Spring.

Kind regards

Sue Stokes


Thank you for the fantastic and healthy specimens!

Looking forward to some delightful blooms later on in the year!

Kind regards,


Hello, thank you for the beautiful plants. They came in very good condition! Thank you!

I’ll purchase again from you.

Best regards,
Marina Aleksandrova

I just wanted to drop you an email to say how pleased I was with my recent
order. The quality of the plants was outstanding and really great value.

Thank you so much!

Please can you advise when you will get some Typha Latifiola back in stock.

Many thanks again

Simon Keith

Jane Aberdeenshire

Dear Simon,

I always enjoy your newsletter – and my pond created from plants I have bought from you – so just want to say ‘thank you’ for being such a dedicated nurseryman and for sharing your enthusiasm with us. I look forward to Spring 2020!

Kind regards,

Anne Preston

Thank you very much for my recent order. I am delighted with the quality of the plants and the speed and efficiency with which the order was handled. Truly impressive service.

Kind regards,

Val Pitts


I received my order this morning, and would like to commend you on the packing of the plants and marking of the box where to leave it if I was not at home.

The plants are healthy and now in the pond. Excellent customer service and I hope to order again online.


Rosemary Boyd-Mercer

Plants just delivered, potted up in greenhouse until this weather clears. All look very healthy. Will have no hesitation buying from you again.

Thank you,

Suzanne Moore

Dear Simon,

Thanks for sending the order. Everything was fine. I attach a photograph of our pond just for interest.

Last year it was a barren concrete lined and edged 70s boating pond in our local park, that collected rubbish.

We raised funds, got a contractor in to do the heavy work, and converted it to a wildlife pond.

The planting is slowly getting established, and your plants have been added to the margins.

Best wishes

Hi Simon received my plants today and felt I had to let you know how pleased I am with them, I’m sure they will look great in my Himalayan themed garden. Thanks again 😉

Thank you so much arrived in perfect condition today.

Postman has just been!


Sue Moorhouse

Received in good order today, many thanks.


David Kerr

Many thanks for prompt delivery. I am always slightly anxious about planting in and around the pond exactly as instructed but thank you for good info and service.

Kind regards

Sandra Haycocks

Dear Mr Harman,

Many thanks, the plants arrived in beautiful condition a couple of hours
ago, well on time.

Needles to say they are already planted up and getting used to being
cosseted in their new home.

I hope you and your staff enjoy a great weekend,

kindest regards,

Bryan Higgins.


I received my order yesterday. Everything was in perfect condition, as has been every plant I have purchased from you been excellent.

Thank you

Peter Killips

Hi Simon,

Plants arrived safely yesterday and are excellent.

Many thanks

Michele Dowell

I was delighted with the arrival today of my first order from you. The
plants, Iris, and Schizostylis were good , healthy plants which were well

Thank you.

Liz Ambler

Many thanks, very pleased with the plants, they look very healthy, also the ones I had before are growing well.

Joy Gregory

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for replying to my earlier question about planting Potamogeton Luscens.

Just wanted to say the plants look really good and lush will not hesitate to use again.



Good afternoon Simon

It is imperative that I write and thank you and your nursery, Lilies Water Gardens.

My Thalia Dealbata arrived today, and what a plant!

Absolutely perfect; expertly packaged, but what an amazing quality plant I received.

My wife’s comment probably sums it up just right: “Why did you not get three?’

So, Simon I will be back.

Currently, I am looking for Colocasia antiquorum ‘Illustris’ if you ever have one.

Thank you again, regards

Joe Burns

Thank you for a very healthy water lily which arrived on time.

Joan Kay

Hello Simon,

My order arrived today & I wanted to thank you for the lovely plants. I am particularly taken with the Justicia Americana, it looks so delicate (deceptively so I am sure) planted it up this evening so looking forward to watching it grow on.

I enjoyed your recent blogs on your childhood interest in all things aquatic, I was much the same as a child & I am sure it has shaped my interest in ponds & plants now.

Yesterday was spent rescuing newts from a leaking pond, we were able to leave enough water in the bottom for the tiny ones i caught over 300 big ones who are currently in a large container with pond water in it until their return early next week.

Until next time.

Kind Regards


Thank you so much for my order which I received today.
All of the plants are in excellent condition and perfectly packed! Plus they arrived so quickly from placing my order.

I had looked at other websites for pond plants but so many of them are big, commercial entities offering ˜collections˜ of plants with huge prices to match!

So glad that I found your website!

Jan Tibbles

Hi – thank you the plants arrived safely yesterday and are now potted and watered. I am delighted with them – thank you so much for your help and care – regards Jackie


I’m writing to let you know that I’m most pleased with the service I have received from you and the products I bought! I loved it that you kept me updated both about the progress of the order and the delivery. Your customer service is outstanding, and so are your plants! I will definitely shop with you again and will recommend you to my friends.

Thank you so much!

Best regards,

Emmy Tylenda

Hi Simon

I have just received my order via courier. I told my husband we have to sign for it but the courier said he was too early and therefore he did not take a signature, just our name.

Excellent plants safely delivered, thank you

Karen Grun

Thank you so much for organising the delivery of my plants. It all worked perfectly and I found them in my green wheelie last night.

I am a learner so now I have to work out how to put them in my pond.

Many thanks for your help

Chrissy Emms

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your email and yes your previous email had gone into my spam folder. Sorry for not checking first.

My plants arrived yesterday and I’m thrilled with them. Totally surprised to receive the planting instructions, great reading and very appreciated.

I’m sure I’ll be back buying again in the future.

Thanks for a fantastic service



Hello to you all,

Just a quick note to thank you so much for my brilliant plants but also thank you for the huge Frog Seats you sent me.That was so kind of you and made me laugh. They came at the right time as I was having a dreadful day when everything went wrong so they really cheered me up. Have put them in the ponds so they all have something to sit on!

Hope you are all keeping well and looking after yourselves. I wish you were all down the road from me as it would be nice to be able to see you all!
Take care of yourselves.

Caroline and the sitting Frogs.


Just to let you know my parcel has arrived safely. All the plants look very healthy – thank you


Hi, I just got my order today and I’m very pleased with it, thank you.


Dear Simon,

Thank you for the beautiful shipment of plants!

They all came lush and green and BIG.

The Potamogeton Luscens is truly luminous. They really catch the sunlight.

Like green candles at the bottom of my pond. I have never heard of them, but they’re so lovely.

My next order will involve more of them.



The little water lily has arrived safely and is now settled in my pond.

Thank you

Ingrid Woodburn

Hi Simon

Thanks you ever so much. Very much appreciated. Plants have just arrived and look fabulous, as always.

Best wishes


I have now received the plant and I want to compliment you on the quality of the plant and the excellent packaging even though it travelled 2nd class Royal mail.

Vera Baty


I got my order yesterday and everything is now planted up – I just wanted to say thank you as all the plants looked in excellent condition and the order and delivery process was very smooth.



Dear Simon,

Thank you very much for sending a replacement for my earlier order of pond weed which failed to arrive. The replacement plants arrived safely today I greatly appreciate your very fair response to the delivery problem.

I will certainly be doing business with Lilies Water Gardens again.

Many thanks

Alison Cox

Received my plants today. They were so beautifully packaged! Thank you very much.

Best wishes,


Dear Lilies Water Gardens,

I just want to say thank you for the recent order you sent, I was so very happy with the quality of plants and they all looked so healthy, they are planted and we look forward to watching them mature. So thank you again, top class prices, service and plants.



Just wanted to say I have received my order today and I’m very pleased with the condition of the water lily. It looks exceptionally healthy and I can’t wait for it to bloom; it has two buds which I was not expecting.

As I am a beginner with pond gardening, I have just set up a mini pond and my new lily, ‘Little Sue’ sets off my pond perfectly. Thank you from a very satisfied customer.

Sue Stanley

Actually Simon I have just put in the plants I bought from you and I really wanted to say what great plants they are…..the water lilies are in perfect condition and the Devil’s Bit Scabious were really big and healthy.

I am delighted with my order and will be ordering again and thoroughly recommend your business.

Now it is up to me to keep them healthy!

Many thanks again

Sue Richardson

The plants arrived today, thank you…..they look FAB!!!



Thank you very much for my order which I received yesterday. The plants look in excellent condition and were very well packed and arrived without damage so I’m very pleased with them. I have to be honest and let you know that I ordered and paid for one athyrium filix-femina frizalliae but have been sent two plants. I think it will cost more to return it than the price of the plant but will do so if you wish.


Stefania Fogel

Dear Simon,

I’m delighted to say that I received my parcel which I presume is the one sent out by you on Monday. Goodness knows what happened to the first one – probably sitting in a post office somewhere. I am very grateful to you for sending another. If the original one does turn up, rest assured that I will pay you for it as I am sure it will not go wrong. Pond doing well and the plants I bought from you recently are looking great – especially now that I have fed them all.

Best wishes and many thanks


Thank you so much for your time, advice and assistance on Saturday, we enjoyed looking at/and buying the lilies etc..

Kind regards – Terry and Beth

Hi Simon Harman,
Thank you very much for the above Order, received, as promised, within 3 days of dispatch. The three water lilies are in perfect condition, and planted out within minutes of receipt!

Excellent customer service, and highly recommended.

Regards Frank and Kathleen Evans

I have today taken delivery of my order of ferns, and I thought that I would write to you to say what a pleasure it is to do business with your company. The delivery information was fist class (and correct), the plants were very good and packed in such a way that they arrived in tip top condition.

Many other companies could learn a lot from your example.

John Cockram

Just to let you know all the plants are doing really well…will have to open a water garden nursery! Your choice of plants has worked well..amazing how quickly they have all grown and looking fab.

Many thanks for your help.


Anona B

Hello Simon

The plants arrived safely yesterday and I’ve just potted them up. I’m delighted with them so will almost certainly be putting another order in at some point. We are planning on putting in a pond over the next 18 months or so and this order was really a trial run, which you’ve passed with flying colours! Your help and good communication is much appreciated, as is the fair priced delivery charges. Thank you also for the prompt Monday morning dispatch according to my request.

Kind regards

Hi Simon

I got the plants today thank you and what great size and condition they were in so thanks again


James Wiseman

Our pond is stocked entirely with lilies from you and I wanted to say how happy I’ve been with everything on the previous orders – everything has arrived in good nick and upon flowering has been what it said it was (shocking how often this has not been the case when buying lilies generally); we had over 30 flowers open on the pond over the weekend and it looked brilliant. Hoping this next batch will finish it off (at which point I will start pushing for another pond!)



Hi Simon
Thanks for your reply, see what you mean about postage.

My order arrived in time to go via a friend travelling on the ferry and got to France in perfect condition. Thank you-Impressive quality of plants and packaging, looking forward to them flourishing and spreading, really helpful and interesting website.



Good morning,

My order arrived yesterday – I just want to say that I’m delighted with your
service. The plants were perfectly packed and in good condition. Now I just
have to keep them alive!

With kind regards,
Christine Johnson

Dear Mr Harman

Plants arrived safely, well marked and labelled, very choice plants.

Thank you very much.

George Ling.

Plants arrived today, all in good condition, well packed and labeled. Plants are a healthy size and well rooted, even the plugs. I am very pleased with the quality of your plants and the quality of your service. Queries have been answered promptly and helpfully. I highly recommend your firm and shall be buying from you again in the future.

(Unlike another pond plant supplier whose order was delivered today, many of the plants with hardly any root- more compost than plant even though they were supposedly bare rooted.)

Very pleased.
Best regards

Hi Simon – just wanted to say many thanks for the plants which arrived last week, all arrived beautifully packed and super condition.

Best wishes

Peter Halton

Received this order today.

Have previously had great difficulty finding a supplier of these items .

Just the job!

Many thanks

Very happy with your service.

Thank you.

Hi Simon,

Thought I would let you know how very impressed I am!

From the knowledgeable advice, to the delivery service and quality of the
plants. As a complete novice to water gardening, I am also finding the
advice on your website particularly helpful. I have just read up on planting
up and the advice was just what I needed…

Ready to plant up today and needed that!

Thanks for everything. Will highly recommend.

With kindest regards


Thank you for the careful packaging and prompt delivery of the water lilies.


Ernie Chapman

Just to thank you so much for my extra Fern…what a lovely thing to do and it was so kind of you….very much appreciated. I have just been let down big time by another famous online plant company but I have managed to get some lovely Lobelia’s from you and Bergenias but I also want some Salvias.
An enormous HUG to you all.
Delivery system excellent…delivered within time slot…great!


I have received the plants, thank you.

Florence Mary & Ritch Asher

Dear Lilies Water Gardens.

Just had to write to thank you for the very speedy delivery, customer service and REALLY lovely plants you sent me! I am delighted with the plants, and they arrived in perfect condition and are already enjoying my pond. Cant wait until they get acclimatised and start flowering.

I will be checking your site regularly in the future for inspiration. I inherited a pond when buying my house so I am trying to redesign it to my own ideas.

Thanks again,



Thank you very much for dealing so promptly with my order for 3
Hemerocallis, which arrived in excellent condition. I help maintain our Church garden, and I thought that these lovely day lilies would be a perfect addition to our blue and white section, particularly with such an apt name -Gentle Shepherd.


Angela Lewis.

Hi Simon

I received my plants today and am delighted with them as always, I love the different Geums. My Mimmulus Orange Glow is looking really nice.

Good Evening Simon.

Plants arrived safely and in excellent condition.

Thank you for my lovely plants – they look extremely healthy.

We are creating a water area so I do not know exactly where they will go yet so will leave them in pots for the moment and keep them wet.



Just to say thank you for your prompt delivery of my order.  The aquatic plants are lovely and well worth the money.

Will order from yourselves in the future.



I received my order today well within your timescale you mentioned, the order was perfect and good value for money, I will be back with another order soon and will go out of my way to recommend you guys, cheers,

Many thanks for your prompt and careful service. Have a great Summer,

Kind regards Jill Ryan Southport.

Thanks very much – Excellent web site by the way



Dear Simon Harman,

Just to let you know, the water lily you sent me appears to be happily in
situ in my pond, and the reward, already, is two lovely blooms.  I felt you
might be nervous about the home to which it had been sent – lovely quite
large cottage garden.  I read your blog with instructions – very helpful –
and you are obviously quite passionate about your subject.

Many thanks.

Dawn Rainsford

Hi Simon

Plant arrived safely – many thanks for your support. Will shop with you again – great range and good service.

I can only hope my new pond does them justice.

I would be pleased to recommend your services to others.

thank you for your prompt attention CJ

Hi Simon
Just to let you know that the aquatic plants arrived today. They look like good strong plants. I’ve planted them in the pond so I’ll just sit back now and wait for the results.

Hi there,

I just wanted to thank you for your very fast delivery and the quality of your pond plants.  I have rarely seen lillies sold in such a nice state – usually they only have 1 or 2  leaves – the one you sent must have had about a dozen !  Thank you so much for the immediate impact in my pond rather than having to  wait and hope all is well next season.

Kind Regards


Dear Simon,

Thank you for sending me the water lily. It has arrived safely.

Have a good evening.

Kind regards,


Fantastic Service. Plant just arrived and is now sitting in a bucket of
rainwater having a drink before it get’s planted!

It looks very healthy and perky!

Being a miserable old pensioner I wish someone would say the same about me!!

Many thanks for excellent service.


Dear Sir/madam

Just a short email to say thank you for my recent order.  The aquatic plants arrived the next day and I am 100% satisfied with them

I will not hesitate to use Lillies Water gardens again

Thanks !

Gary Scott


Just wanted to contact you to let you know how pleased I am with my first order.

Hi Simon – just to say, received my order yesterday and I am impressed with the service.  The aquatic plants look good too and I am really looking forward to seeing both the water irises and waterlilies in flower.  Thanks very much and I hope I can persuade other clients to have a pond so I can use your company again.

Best wishes.JANE HEATH

I would like to let you know how pleased I was with the quality of the aquatic plants you sent.I must admit we did order them to see what we could expect to get for £1.80,and it is fair to say we are more than happy. Where we live aquatic places are few and have a dismal selection of plants,most pots are normally empty or the plants look pitiful ,or the mimulus has overtaken everything,and they charge £4 or £5 for these . We will certainly be ordering from you again and will recommend you to other people we know who have ponds. Your service has been excellent,many thanks,Nigel Grimes

Hi Simon, I just had email you to say how pleased i am with my order, it
have just been delivered at 8.45 am Weds 22 June. The water plants is first
class, I am more than happy, thank you very much, take care,

Bob Holloway.


Thank you for the pond plants.  They have perked-up very well after their journey.

Best wishes,

Graham Curtis

Wow what service.  Many thanks.    Gill

Dear Mr Harman,

Many thanks for your prompt supply of the pond plants I ordered – excellent service!

all good wishes,

Just wanted to say thank you for the excellent customer service that you offer from the e-mail to advise of dispatch to the text to confirm date of delivery. I also had reason to call & leave a message which was immediately returned & my issue dealt with. I wish more companies understood the value of excellent customer service, we will be shopping with you again & recommending you to everyone we know who has a pond. Thanks again

Emma Horrex

Hello again, Many thanks for such efficient service. I wish all companies were like you!

Love to you all, Caroline

Dear Simon, My latest order arrived early this morning and as always contained excellent quality aquatic plants and goods! The packing is always brilliant and much appreciated as I have had plants by post before and they have been hanging out of the packing because it wasn’t done securely.
Simon, How high are the Patio Tubs? I know it says 45cm but I am assuming that is bowl circumference??

I have sent you and your Gang something in the post which I hope will give you all a smile!

Take care, Caroline

Message to Kate in the Packing Shed, Thanks Kate for your message…you all do a great job! My pond plants have just arrived safely and well packed as always. Now I have to go and do some boring Sainsbury’s shopping! Would rather look at your website!

Hugs to you all, Caroline

Dear Simon, You are a STAR! I wasn’t expecting this until next week and have just told the Tadpoles their food supply was almost at an end until next week! (Batty woman who talks to Tadpoles!) Mega Hug enclosed,


Thanks Simon, Super Efficient as ever and very much appreciated! Sorry about the extra order on Sunday, just Tadpole food I forgot to order and two more of your brilliant pond plants! I really must stop gazing at your brilliant website!!

Take care, Caroline

Hi, I have just received some Lobelia plants from you and just wanted to say what fantastic aquatic plants they are.

I do order from many mail order nurseries, and these are by far the best quality plants I have received.

I will be placing a further order and definitely recommending you to my friends, thanks again – Dave Locking

Good Afternoon Simon,

The plants arrived this morning; they are in really good condition.

Thank you for a first class service



just to thank you for the plants i received today.i was VERY dubious about ordering mail order plants but these are excellent—cheaper and much healthier looking than my local garden centre’s collection.sadly i suspect my pond may be full when these plants establish so i may not be able to place further orders.thanks again.

I wanted to leave a review for the above order.

I am really pleased with the whole transaction between myself and Lilies Water Gardens. The plants arrived in superb condition, beautifully protected and are really healthy and strong. Amazingly good value for money and i would definitely recommend to others as well as place orders with confidence in the future A 5 star service.

Just to say that the above very pretty plants arrived in good condition and perfect for the steep sides of our small pond which is solely for tadpoles newts damsel and dragonflies. Have bought plants once before and equally pleased with the quality and also, the information on your site. We keep our small gardens as wildlife friendly as possible, so the small shaded pond is a great part of this. Norma Parfitt PS dont need the free water snails that come with the plants, have enough of those!

Plants arrived this morning in excellent condition.  Would recommend your site.

Many thanks

Regards Norma Parfitt

Plants have arrived in good condition, thank you.

To whom it mat concern. I would just like to say many thanks for the prompt & safe delivery of my order with your company. All of the plants & lilies are really top quality and I am made up with them, at this present moment I have had to store them in a deep bucket full of water as I am waiting on one more lily from another company to arrive, it was an impulse bid on eBay and I was lucky enough to win it not like me to win anything. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow so I can get planting. many thanks again for all your help. Mr Marshall.

Thank you for my order which arrived this evening. I am really pleased with everything, as I was with my last order. I look forward to doing business with you in the future. I hope to be down south in a couple of months time and will hopefully be able to visit your nursery.

Hi! Many thanks for lilies, I’ve received them in very fine condition an planted yesterday afternoon. All the best regards, Antti

Hi My plants arrived this morning (30th) thanks. Geoff.

Lovely plants arrived today -many thanks, Simon. Dori

Product range – excellent; anagelis and viola palustris are not on that many lists, and your price for amenopsis was well below my only local supplier (£9) – availability – excellent for this early in the season – speed of despatch and delivery – excellent – quality of plants – excellent – size of plants – all as large or larger than expected.  partic the amenopsis pot which I have got three plants out of – all plants nice and clean, no sign of invasive nasties in amongst – postage and packaging charge looked steep up front, but plants were all carefully and effectively packaged, so not unreasonable. – helpful email response to my contact form enquiry. – I would have preferred if your system had sent out an automatic email confirming each item that I had ordered, rather than just a payment receipt for the total amount

All in all pretty impressed.


Plants arrived safely 13/8/14 & I am very pleased with them. They are now planted in ponds & bog area. Thanking you Alan.

Just wanted to say that I am absolutely delighted with these plants.   The cyperus were more mature and larger than I had expected, so they look great already. Packaging was brilliant – plants arrived undamaged and still nicely damp. many thanks for excellent service. Alison

Hello Simon Just to let you know that my plants arrived safely today and have been planted. The packaging was excellent, nothing was damaged or broken. The plants themselves look healthy, well rooted and free from disease. Thank you very much for a prompt delivery – I’ll be putting in another order of plants for my new pond soon! Kind regards Andrea

Thank you Plants arrived and planted. Packaged with such care and in beautiful condition. Definitely a big tick!

Dear Mr Harman, Today I received my lily wanvisa, I had to email you to tell you that it arrived in perfect condition.  It was well packed and I was extremely pleased to see how many leaves it had and even a flower bud!  Thank you on a fantastic service, I will know where to come in the future!

Mark Carey

Hi Simon All arrived safely just now. Thanks for getting it to us and helping us to create a wildlife haven in our pond. We will be creating another “proper” pond in front of the house in the next few weeks, so we may need another order! I am assuming that the plants will be ok left in the plastic bags till we get home on tues? We have put the opened box in the garage under a window so there is some light, Or do we need to do anything else? Again thanks Mary-Lee


I have received the water lily and it was well packed, thank you.

I have potted the plant and placed it in our smaller pond. It is just now a waiting game for the lily to grow then I will transfer it into a larger pot/basket and place it in our larger pond to grow and hope the koi will don’t eat it.    Thank you again for the plant.

Kind Regards Mike.

Hello Simon Harman.

Many thanks to you and the team for my order. The delivery arrived in first class condition. All the plants were 100% tip top condition despite the heat. Many thanks once again, first class service. All the best to you. Michael.

Gill Sibley

Hi, I have just received the above order and have to tell you how pleased I am with it. Prompt delivery, exceptionally well packed and very healthy plants. I only hope I can continue to keep them in as good condition. Thank you

Joan Allday

I just want to say how impressed I am with the order of water lilies I received yesterday. The bare-rooted plants are in fantastic condition and I was delighted with the quality, health and size. Shop/garden centre plants are not a patch on what you provide! Thank you very much – I shall certainly be buying from you again and recommending your products.

Best wishes Rebecca

HI, I thought I should contact you to let you know how very impressed I have been with the pond plants that you supplied to me at the end of May. Everyone of them has been superb, the water Hyacinths (large growing) have flowered, i have been buying these plants from other suppliers for over 40 years and never before have they flowered. Everything else that should have flowered has done, ie Persicoria Amphibian,Aponogeten, Villarsia Nymphoids.The water Hyacinths have grown from 3 plants to over 25!, the 2 Stratiotes Aliodes have multiplied into 10 plants, the Elodia Crispa and Potomageton Crispas have filled the pond, my fish love it and have been spawning all summer and the water is as clear as gin. All I can say is if anyone requires plants for their pond there is only one place to go , yourselves.

Best Regards, RON.


Just a short email to advise you that my plants have arrived  safely and are now in my pond. I am VERY impressed with them, thank you very much. I will be back when I require more plants.

Best Wishes, Ron Loomes.

Simon, just to let you know how delighted we are with the fab plants and fantastic service . Ordered Tues am , arrived Weds am, very safely packaged and all looking vey healthy. Couldn’t really believe I had paid such a low price for such good plants. Will definitely recommend/ use again Sarah and Duncan Barnes

Thank you, amazing quality as always and so well packaged

Sharron Spain

Dear Simon,

My plants arrived first thing this morning, well packed and in excellent condition. I shall then wait in anticipation for the display in the pond to develop. They are all unpacked (supervised closely by the Jazz cat – I had to have iris ‘Jazz Hot’, though her sister did snap one of my other young iris by sitting on it while conducting a study of the newts in the pond!) and I just need the rain to stop so that I (we – feline supervision is usually required unless they are too busy sleeping!) can go out and plant them. Many thanks for your helpful responses phone and email queries. In these days of electronic communications good personal service is still appreciated.

Kind regards,

Sian Wynn

Just to say very many thanks for the plants that arrived a couple of days ago. Prompt delivery and superbly packaged!

Best regards,


It’s not often I’m inspired to write to congratulate someone on their website/service but I have to do so with yours.

We have a small wildlife pond in the corner of our front garden to provide frogs etc to eat the slugs etc in our ornamental veg patch which is also our front garden. When we intially stocked the pond we weren’t aware how invasive some of the marginals and our water lily could get – more plants for a stately home lake than our little puddle! So on Saturday we drained it and started again, carefully saving the wildlife and re-introducing it when we’d re-filled the pond – as much from the water butts as possible.

So on Sunday we set off in search of new plants only to find our nearest water garden stockist had closed down and the nearest branch of a chain had absolutely nothing in stock apart from one type of oxygenator.

So that’s when I found you on the internet. Not only did you have a massive array of plants, but I could choose them according to their suitability. Your website was fantastically informative and easy to use. And then, to cap it all, the plants arrived yesterday, looking really healthy and beautifully packed. I have recommended you to my gardening friend who has a much larger pond than ours.

So thanks again!

Frances Cutler


I am writing this to thank you for my recent order which i received the day after posting, as promised.

I am delighted with the reliable service i have received from you, also with the quality of the water plant, thanks so much. I will most certainly recommend you to friends and family.

I wish you a pleasant summer 🙂

Best Regards Jeanette Cambridge

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for my pond plants. They arrived on Thursday in perfect condition and were planted immediately. I particularly wanted to thank you for the bud on the Pygmy lily! I hope it will open as I have never had a waterlily in flower despite having had them in our pond for years and now thrown out. You were so helpful too so I will gladly recommend you! I hope the fish will like the new additions too!

Many thanks indeed.

Veronica MacDougall Isle of Mull

Really pleased with the lilies.  Especially pleased with the care you took with the packaging.  Some seedlings arrived from Sarah Raven at the same time and they looked pants.  Yours, on the other hand looked fresh and healthy.  Well done!  Will send you a picture when they grow.Valerie

Hi The Lillies Team, I’m delighted with the 4 Lillies delivered yesterday and planted this morning.  They look in excellent condition and hope they take OK. I was so pleased last night I submitted another order for Marginals. Many Thanks – A BEST PRACTICE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Best Regards Ken Cousins

Hi Simon Plants arrived this am thanks. Excellent condition and generous portions, many thanks. Stephen McClenaghan

Afternoon my name is Shaun my plants I ordered from you arrived today.  Thank you, Shaun

Hi Just to say thank you for my splendid little Cyperus plants which have arrived in excellent order, despite spending an extra 24 hours in the arms of the Royal Mail because I was out when the postman called. I kept these as house and terrace plants for years but have had to go without recently and I much look forward to their graceful presence again. With best wishes Sally

Many thanks, Simon. I really appreciate the quick supply date. Best regards Rodger

Dear Simon My order for a group of Caltha palustris/plena and alba arrived here his morning. I wish to congratulate you on  the speed of delivery also the packaging which kept the plants in excellent condition and I will have no hesitation in using your services in the future should the need arise. Many thanks Gerald T Cole

Dear Simon, Thank you so much for my pond plants! I happened across your website and found it extremely informative and useful. I’ve had my pond in Scotland (windswept at 780ft) for nearly 10 years and it has been very difficult to find a company that actually knows what they are talking about and offers advice so freely.

I’ve attached photos of my pond from July 2013 and 2014 and will take another photo this July to show what a difference your plants have made.

I’m sure I’ll be back for some more!

Best wishes, Shivali

Hello Simon, Just to let you know your order landed all item’s look good. Lilies already planted.

Regards Mike

Dear Simon   Two excellent rhizomes of Nelumbo Momo Botan arrived here yesterday. I’m delighted with them.

With many thanks and best wishes   Mark


Plants arrived yesterday, Beautifully packed , still damp, very happy with them.

Rachel Mason

I was very wary of ordering plants online, having had many disastrous specimens turn up. I live in Scotland and to be honest garden centres here are..well..useless, selling plants that just cannot cope with wet, so did not have much choice. On reading the testimonials on you’re web site I took the plunge… And have to say I am over the moon with the plants. Well packaged and with labels too! It’s nice to see someone so passionate about plants and quality. Hopefully soon my Scottish bog will be turned into something beautiful!

Hi Simon, Just a quick note to say that they arrived this morning all safe and sound! Thanks again, and thank you for the extra one, there really was no need! But thank you all the same.

Regards Penny

Dear Mr. Harman

Kind regards, Estelle M. Meitiner.

Hi Simon

Water irises arrived looking healthy and happy. Thank you. And the irises I bought are flowering. A compliment to you for the great packaging. Regards Valerie

Dear Simon and staff at Lilies Water Gardens

Thank you so much for the very prompt delivery of our order, it arrived very early the morning after your email advising despatch.   The plants were in very good condition and we have spent the last couple of days trying to place them in the right place following excellent information on your site.   We are an elderly couple with a large pond so it is important to us that we didn’t order invasive plants (we don’t bend very easily these days).   Invasive plants made it difficult for the newts, frogs and toads that have already started to arrive this year.   We found 24 frogs/toads in the silt at the bottom of the pond and up to now have had to transfer 7 newts to our other pond.

We have just relined our pond after battling a leak for the last year so restocking is quite a job.   We have a further list and check you site regularly so that we can order plants that are currently out of stock.   We did order over the telephone because we haven’t quite come to terms putting payment details on line and trust this is ok.  Once again thank you for your excellent service.

Carole and Richard Monk.

Hi Simon

Received the lilies Saturday they are the best plants you have sent me so far, thank you.

Regards Mike

Thank you so much, all has been received in great order.

Regards, Marion

Hi Simon, My plants arrived this morning, I am delighted with the speed of delivery and more importantly, the quality of the plants. Never expected such healthy amazing plants. They are already potted and placed in the pond..

Thanks again for brilliant service, will recommend you to anyone with a pond. Margaret.

Hi Simon, Thank you for sending my pond plants in such good condition, so well packed. They are perfect and planted up straight away in my small lines pond. I’ve planted the bare root iris in quite large square aquatic baskets with aquatic soil and grit as a topping. I saw the Gardeners World programme featuring the Rowden water iris which is maybe why you had only the Sonata for sale! However, Mrs Rowden stated that these plants don’t like aquatic soil! I hope I’ve done the correct thing. I planted the Myosotis in a bigger pot, topped with grit and left it in a water tray overnight before planting into the pond. Imagine my horror next morning when I saw birds had pecked about in the pot and flung out my carefully placed plant. I retrieved the bits from around the tray and repotted them, thereby making several new plantings in more pots. They have recovered and are now in place in the pond. Thank you for such an interesting website.


Thank you so much, I will watch out for them. I bought them from you last year and they were brilliant..I bought some on eBay the other week….big mistake they were rubbish and died. Regards Liz

Received my order yesterday and wanted to say a big thank you for your prompt service. They arrived well packed fresh and as described. Now all planted around my pond. I will recommend you and definitely order from you again.

Regards Linda Gay

Thank you. Plants are lovely. Regards Julia Brown

Enquiry: Hi Simon. I’m absolutely thrilled with my order. The quality and size of your plants exceeded my expectations. Although I initially thought the p&p was a bit pricey, it was worth every penny. My very well packed parcel arrived safely, on time and was left in my safe place – I’ve kept the box to reuse. Could you please let me know if Ranunculus Hederaceous is a floating plant or should it be planted in a basket. Many thanks. Kind regards Ann

Hi Lilies arrived safe & well this morning, now in baskets/watered & will put them in tonight when cooler, many thanks with help , very pleased with them.

Hello I just wanted to thank you for my order
Having been unable to drive but wanting to stock a new pond I was very nervous about buying water plants online.
However my order was exceptionally well packaged both the bare rooted and containerised items.
I took a few days over the planting and despite a a couple of items looking less than there best as I finally came to plant them namely the Veronica becabunga Geum and Butomus they have all taken up well and Veronica is even having another flush of flowers .
I will definitely recommend and use you again and will look forward to choosing some of your Irises for next year .The pond should be well established for 2017 Many thanks
Regards Andrea Harrison

Hi Simon, order came today 4.15pm plants are superb, best I’ve bought.
let me know if you get this message cheers Gary.

Just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the order- it was received very promptly , the plants are in excellent condition and a very good size and were packed for transit very well. I am rather a novice at water gardening so now hope I can plant them up and keep them good condition- I was hoping to put some feedback on the website via the Customer feedback box but couldn’t see a place to add comments- I will definitely be ordering again and am so pleased to have found your website which was very helpful especially the table showing the attributes of each plant –

Regards Geraldine

Just to say thank you for 2 super lilies. Really pleased and will be using you again.

Graham Keeling

Hi I thought you would like to know that this order was delivered today. Given that I placed it on Sunday I reckon that is really rapid service. I have begun to unpack the plants, but as I was doing so the heavens opened. Again! The good thing is that the ground will be good and moist when I plant the bog plants. Many thanks for all your help. Best wishes Harvey Cox

Hello Pleased to confirm the plants arrived safely. Now planted in and around our new pond. Just waiting for warmer weather! Thank you Ian

Hi Simon, Just wanted to say – many thanks for our order. Everything was great and we really appreciated your careful packing and clear instructions on each plant for their planting depth. Looking forward to seeing all the wildlife this will attract! Very best,

Not only was the gentleman I spoke to very knowledgeably and helpful, you also managed to get my order out after the cut of time, saving me a lot of hassle! We received the plants yesterday and was very pleased with the quality, especially for the price. We could not have asked for a better service and cannot wait for our pond the thrive with the new plants. I would not hesitate to recommend lilies water gardens!

Just wanted to email you to thank you for my order of oxygenating plants that I received last weekend. They seemed to be very healthy plants and good value for money. Will definitely be using your company again.

Regards Chris Burke

Arrived this morning thanks. Brilliant instruction leaflet also, great advise for the novice like myself. I’ve not killed a plant yet but there is always a first time! Paul

Hi Simon

My first order arrived today and the plants are superb. I will get them all planted in the pond tomorrow.

So far, no ducks. I am also planting the pond border with plants that ducks don’t like so fingers crossed I will soon have re-established my wildlife pond.

Thank you for your help and advice

With kind regards

Philippa Taitt

Hi Simon, Thank you very much for the plants (and supplies) which I received in excellent condition on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the delivery company wasn’t able to make it before 12 (they gave me a slot between 12 and 1pm and arrived 12:40) though their tracking system is excellent, I was late for work which wasn’t good … Otherwise, no problem at all.

I planted the water lily, Elodea and Iris immediately on receipt, and the marginals the next day, all in baskets, the ferns went in on Thursday. All the plants are looking fine and the water lily leaves are rising steadily, now very close to the water surface. Mimulus Orange Glow has opened its first flower. The pond – cleaned and restored after a period when it was shaded by trees, now removed, and had become degraded into nothing more than a sea of duckweed over mud and fallen leaves – has now been visited repeatedly by a Southern Hawker dragonfly, laying eggs near to the pool, which I count as the ultimate badge of approval. Pond skaters have also returned, after removal of the duckweed, and the water is extremely clear.

One of these days, hope to visit your gardens – have great memories of touring the Latour-Marliac nursery in France (a little museum/memorial to his achievements) – though have gone for a more modern hybrid, partly inspired by visiting Chatsworth, which has a great way of mixing of ancient and modern …

Regards and best wishes to you, your business and team.

Julian Meldrum

Hi Simon, Thank you for replying to my answer machine message. Sorry I didn’t get to the phone in time, I was sorting out the pond!

Thank you so much for the planting basket, it was very kind of you.

I just wanted to say a very big Thank You for my order which arrived today. It was such an easy transaction and you were very helpful in helping me sort out exactly what I needed. The lily is very healthy and even has flower buds on it so I’m hoping we may get a few flowers before it settles down for the winter.

Thank you once again for such excellent customer service. I will recommend you to anyone looking to buy plants and accessories for their pond and we will contact you again next season for some more plants.

Kind regards Heather.

Happy with my order and how you do business……….many thanks s

My plants arrived safely and nicely packed today. thanks so much. Sally

Thank you so much for my order that arrived today. They were for my husband as a Father’s Day present from our daughter and he is very pleased with them. The plants look good and have really perked up now they are in the pond. They were packaged well and came very quickly. Keep up the good work.

Sally Hyden

Hi Simon. Thank you very much for the plants which arrived today, in good condition as very carefully packed. Most of them are now planted and a few will be in a tray of water in the shed until Friday.

Regards Simon

Brilliant customer service!!! Many thanks Sue

Hi Simon, Just letting you know I’ve received the ‘water soldiers’ you sent to me earlier this week, thank you, and also for the planting instructions enclosed.

Kind Regards,

Sue Sullivan

Hello, Received my order to-day, very pleased, many thanks. Susan

Hi Simon, Thanks very much for getting back to me so quickly, and thank you for the further information on the plants, that’s great. You’re customer service has been very good, and on the strength of that I would definitely shop with you again.

Kind regards,

Sue Sullivan

Dear Simon, My plants etc arrived safely yesterday and are now all potted and in the pond (some by moonlight)! I am very impressed with the quality and size of the plants and your really helpful and very quick service!

Very many thanks, Susan Simm

Just wanted to thank you for the swift and safe delivery of the pond plants for my new wildlife pond. Cannot believe how quickly they have started to grow. I already have creatures making their home in my pond. Your plants are great value and the information supplied is excellent.

Thank you


Dear Simon, I am just writing to thank you for the wonderful flowers I took delivery of on Wednesday. You will be glad to know that they survived their journey and arrived in excellent condition. They have now been added to my pond and bog garden. I shall be ordering from your website again in the near future, and will recommend your site to friends and family. Once again many thanks.

Kind Regards Alan Coakley

Hi, Simon, Thanks for the goods you sent me. Here’s a commendation I hope you’ll find helpful. I cannot recommend your company too highly. The plants were more developed than those I have received from other internet companies; there were clear mature sizes and planting instructions, and the packaging was excellent. I won’t be shopping elsewhere in future! Warm regards, Paul Jones

Thank you. Just arrived in very good condition Wendy Abbott
