Many thanks Regards Paul (SEPT16)
Jasmine Purchase - September 2016
That is terrific ... Great service and I will buy again from you guys. MG Sept16
Just like to say we travelled all the way from Leicester yesterday just to look around Paramount and purchase some mature plants - Peter was really helpful and even though you were very busy he always managed to find the time to answer our questions and offer advice - we were there for several hours and thought it was great - thank you - we will definitely be coming back.

Just to say thanks for the splendid Pittosporum tobiras you sent on Thursday - very impressed with the plants, their condition and value.
Hi, Just wanted to say thank you for the cloud tree, arrived in mint condition and is a great specimen
Just to say "the yellow bird" flew in this morning and is now planted at Singleton church. It looks a wonderful specimen and I to say thank you. Best wishes Vivienne
Hi I bought some pittosporum tenufolium and quercus ilex from you September last year. Just wanted to say they must have been very good specimins because, combined with the conducive growing conditions of St Ives, Cornwall, they have all doubled, (at least) in size. I planted them about 1.5 metres apart and not there are no gaps between them plus they make the perfect screening I was hoping for. Thank You. John (purchased SEPT15)
Just a quick email to say thank you for the plants. They were wonderful and huge and we loved them - they were even better than I expected them to be, so thank you very much. Warm regards, Alex (Aug16)
Just to advise my plants have arrived and on first look they are stunning! Thank you so much. One happy girlie!
Best regards DR
Peter and Tim, Thank you for all your help this past week in getting the trees to me today. They are fantastic specimens, especially for the price! Your delivery person was really helpful eventhough he was stuck in traffic for ages, and he took the courtesy to call 20minutes away.
Very pleased and would love to use you again in the future. Warm regards Eileen

Thank you for your help & please thank Rory too. I've bought other plants from you in the past for the front of my house & they are beautiful quality that is why I'm a returning customer. Cordyline Australis
Hi Tim just a quick email to say thank you so much, the trees are stunning and I'm super happy with them! Thanks again, YF (SW19 - delivered January 2016) Photinia Red Robin Trees
Great website - that plus delivery were the deal clinchers. Had Googled variegated trees (local nurseries out of stock...think they've sold them all to the many expensive new builds in the area...you must get a lot of demand from that market segment as decent screening must make those expensive but small plots stand out). So your wide range was flagged by Google. Delivery a no brainer since not many people can collect trees. Promo code made the deal close in a timely manner.
Ordered 3 of their very large 40 litre Rhododendrons that arrived today. They are beautiful, very healthy bushy specimens covered in flowers. I am really happy with my purchase.
Delighted to say we have just received our Viburnum Tinus Eve Price. Very impressed, only 4 days from order. Excellent delivery service Many thanks. MR Warwickshire
Ligustrum Topiary Delivery - August 2015
Just to say a big thank you for your superb service. You have been a joy to deal with and your plants have lived up to expectations. I have attached a photograph for you to see for yourself. The plants arrived this morning and I have been busy in the garden since then potting them up. Once it stops raining, I intend to plant a privet hedge in between the pots. Rain - the joy of living in Scotland LOL
Everything about this transaction has gone smoothly, right from the off the communications has been outstanding.
I would recommend you to anyone who asks and do feel free to post my comments on your website. Can I also say that I was absolutely delighted with the plants and the service, you could teach other companies a thing or to about service.
Again, many many thanks Kind regards Gillian
Buxus and Ligustrum Topiary - July 2015 Afternoon, I never usually bother (busy mum, self employed etc) - but if you have somewhere for recommendations please let me know and I'll write a glowing reference. Was super impressed with the whole process from ordering, payments, delivery, speed, transparency, cost and the lovely plants in great condition. It was a wonderful experience as a customer!! BTW ordered from another company same day as you additionally plants and having "completely" different experience. Wish I'd ordered everything via your company now. All the best KS

I have worked with Lucas at Paramount Plants on many high end Residential New Build projects, where the garden planting needs to be very impressive, and yet not cost a fortune. Lucas and the team have consistently provided excellent quality plants (and planted them too!) which have resulted in the wow factor needed to sell these multi-million pound houses. Paramount also offer a fantastic advisory service to maintain the plants and trees, as they have such in depth knowledge of all they supply. I have recommended Paramount Plants on to many clients and have also used their services in my small London garden to great effect. 19th April 2012

Mr & Mrs L. Private Garden in Hampstead designed & landscaped by Paramount Plants & Gardens
Lucas and his team at paramount plants have been really amazing. They have helped me to create a new garden from start to finish. They took the time to meet with me, discuss what I wanted, and then to design the garden. They advised me on the layout and on the sorts of plants that best suited the soil. They then planted everything for me and were incredibly flexible if I changed my mind about what sort of plants I wanted. Nothing has been too much for them and they have also advised on fencing and irrigation. I thoroughly recommend them for anyone who is planting up a new garden!! October 23rd, 2011
Giulietta Galli - Clamour and Campaign
"I am very happy to recommend Lucas and his work. The Livia Garden at Windmill Hill, Enfield was idealized and planted by Lucas and his team and given that it was to be a public memorial garden, in the aftermath of our daughter's untimely death, it was important to find not only the expertise, but the empathy, to transform a tragic and derelict site into a small but vibrant nature reserve. Entrusting oneself to those who say they can deliver is almost always an act of faith but when they do, it is satisfying, comforting and always value for money." June 8th, 2011

“21st Century Village has been working with Lucas and the team at Paramount Plants for more than 8 years. I am delighted to recommend Lucas who heads this dynamic family business, which we have found to be customer focused, service orientated and highly professional.” January 25, 2011
Hired Paramount for Landscape Gardening
“I hired Lucas and his team on two occasions - the first was to advise and plant out my back garden, the second was to do the same with my front garden.
A while after the back garden had been completed and having seen the results my wife and I decided to let Lucas work his magic on the front garden.
I have no hesitation on recommending Lucas and indeed I have done so on a number of occasions.” January 17, 2011

Ivor Taylor - Finance Director and co Owner, Grand Central Studios
In December 2009 Lucas was asked to design, build, plant out and install a very large oak planter forming a 2 metre high by 8 meters long privacy hedge screen. Installation was required as a completed planter, craned onto site, on a specific date. The location was outside and in a major thoroughfare in the busy center of Soho, London. From order to installation was under three weeks, on time and under budget. No fuss, no drama, just results with a great attitude, excellent service and a big smile. We have used Lucas on other projects since and wholeheartedly recommend him and his company.

Sourcing and supplying plants
I have used Lucas at Paramount Plants on several occasions to supply good quality plants for clients of mine, as well as planting of mature hedging. He has always gone out of his way to source plants which I have been unable to source elsewhere and the plants have always arrived on time. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who requires good quality mature plants at reasonable prices. January 31, 2011
