Another cheap Van Meuwen deal.
4 strawberry plants, were £9.99, were £3.99 now 1p plus £3.95 postage with order code VMNS27Z.
Bargain, here's the blurb

One of the sweetest strawberries we’ve tasted! The thin skins mean they're too delicate for supermarkets to use so the only way to get them is to grow your own. This ever-bearing variety produces up to 1.2kg of glossy, red fruits per plant and with flushes of crops from June to October is a great way to extend the strawberry season. Strawberry 'Sweet Sensation' is perfect for growing in patio containers, window boxes and hanging baskets. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12"). Supplied as bareroots.

they're not a very good company … they're not a very good company unfortunatelyhttp://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews250186.html

Have to say that, over the many years that I've dealt with them, they've been as good as gold. The only thing that has "gone wrong" with my orders is that they have been delayed due to the idiosyncracies of our weather. Everything has always arrived, I've always had the relevant emails from them and when they've had to substitute (rarely), the substitutions have been value for the money that I spent on the original order and are accompanied by a £5 voucher.

The one thing that REALLY annoys me and it applies to ALL of the major mail-order plant sellers is offers like this...

...spend a penny and get X, Y or Z for just the cost of the delivery. Yeah right, order something else at the same time and, unless your order qualifies for free delivery you will pay a second delivery charge. Even when you do qualify for free delivery, you still have to pay that spend a penny delivery charge of £3.95 or £4.95 or whatever.

It's about time that this method of marketing was banned as there is no way that you can get the plants on offer for 1p or free. Companies should be forced to state that, using these strawberry plants as an example, their deal costs £3.96.

Wonder what the OFT's reaction would be to one of the major electrical chains or stores listing a special offer on a fridge freezer as - get this fridge freezer for just £1, just pay the delivery charge of £298.99?

Just for everyone's information, Van Meuwen and Vernon's Geraniums are both owned by T&M.

First time I have used them this year and definitely the last!

The worst Customer Service and plants imaginable - save your postage and buy dead plants from B&Q they will be better than the stuff these people send (if they arrive)

Voted cold because its a rip off not a deal
