"What a surprise!!!"
It's a shame you knocked this company so hard in such a snobbish way, you probably did not help them as a new company in any way whatsoever. It's hard enough in the current financial climate for any company to get going without the sort of comments I have seen on this 'support' forum.
I ordered from Canny Gardener twice, one small order to test them out and all ok. Then a very large £200 order and everything arrived on time and in perfect condition. The plants all survived and are growing well. Their customer service was excellent by the way.
There are not enough companies like this in the UK putting your cash back into the UK, Jersey and other offshore places all contribute so much back don't they??Further up the thread I noticed comments about the spelling, well FYI Richard Branson was dyslexic and can't spell. Need I say more.
Why do you suppose we "knocked" the company so much? Just for the devilment of it?
We try here to help people choose wisely, to deal with companies who provide good service amd to warn about bad service. If you think we were wrong in that that's perfectly ok.
I was phoned today by a computer scammer. she wanted my details after claiming I had a computer fault. Is it wrong of me to tell others of this scam? Would ??ou complain that people like me are putting these scammers out of business????
On the early part of this thread I did get the impression that several were knocking canny gardener because it did not have a long trading history. Perhaps the company would still be solvent if more people had said to maybe give it a go back in the beginning.
On these forums it is too easy to knock someone with a few choice words & before you know it's gone viral. Fair enough the latter people commenting unsavourly when the company had found itself on hard times and were getting the delivery issues etc. But the earlier comments didn't help at all. As to scammers, I don't think Canny Gardener had any intention of being scammers. I don't know any of the people there but they dealt with me perfectly well.
I hope my spelling & punctuation are good enough lol.
I think a lot of people felt they were not treated well by the canny gardener, that's all.
Its good that people have an opinion and speak up, as you did and for that you have my respect
No, your spelling etc is just fine
Like your name tho.
I had no problems with the Canny Gardener. They had altered the plant packaging to a more substantial kind. Sorry to see that they are in administratioin
I found Canny Gardener to be an excellent company with good quality plants, well packaged and with reliable (and convenient) delivery, rather than when it suited the supplier. Great shame they are in trouble.
Funny how their supporters often only post for the first time to say so, isn't it?......
I was just thinking that Fairy
Must be coincidence, surely
must be nut
I guess there must be some happy customers of the Canny Gardener. Truth is though that most people had trouble with them and that's why this company failed.
