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,
You asked for email contact for queries, or problems with orders, but I am writing to tell you how delighted I was with the aquatic plants that arrived yesterday. They were in excellent condition, and I will certainly order from you again in the future.
Many thanks, the order arrived this afternoon – just writing to say how impressed I was by the quality of the aquatic plants all look healthy and were well packaged. I always order plants by mail order with some trepidation but this deliver surpassed all expectations so many thanks again
Arrived in Arran this morning in good shape – Thanks for these nicely packed specimens
Thank you Simon. Very impressive service.
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.
Plant arrived safely – many thanks for your support. Will shop with you again – great range and good service.
Just wanted to acknowledge the receipt of my order and compliment you on both the quality of the packaging and of the aquatic plants.
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
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.
All arived . And all fine many thanks. Will pass your details on to friends
Just a note to say our order was received yesterday and we were very pleased with the aquatic plants.
We will certainly order from you again and will recommend you to our friend who is also doing a natural swimming pool.
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.
Thank you for sending me the water lily. It has arrived safely.
Have a good evening.
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.
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
Just wanted to contact you to let you know how pleased I am with my first order.
Everything arrived very quickly and wrapped securely and still alive.
Thank you very much and I will definitely be shopping with you again.
Just wanted to let you know I received the above order today, and am
delighted with the size and quality of the pond plants. They all look
exceptionally healthy. Hopefully I can keep them that way!
Cheers David Patch
This is just to say the pond plants arrived in great condition and are very good.
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

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

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!

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.

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

With many thanks and good wishes Mark Mark Griffiths Just to let you know the plants arrived this morning – well packed and efficient service – thank you.
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.

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.
HI, 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
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.
Just to say very many thanks for the plants that arrived a couple of days ago. Prompt delivery and superbly packaged!
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!
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 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.
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 ! Nikki in Fife
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
Just wanted to advise safe receipt of my wáter plant this morning, thank you.
Kind regards, Estelle M. Meitiner.
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.
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.
Enquiry: 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 ive 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 –
Just to say thank you for 2 super lillies. Really pleased and will be using you again.
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,

Just a quick note to let you know that my order arrived safe & sound today.
Everything was really well packed and all plants were in great condition-I have not always had a good experience with online plant purchases so just wanted to say thank you for your good communications and excellent service. The planting guide was really helpful too.
The plants are already in or around the pond and am really pleased with them-looking forward to watching them get established -I love being in the garden so much!!
Hello, I just wanted to email to thank you for the fantastic service we have received from Lilies Water Gardens. Not only was the gentleman I spoke to very knowledgably 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!

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
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
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.
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.

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
