Quantity of reviews is just as important as their quality, as plants4presents.co.uk will attest. None of the brands in our table scored an average score of 5, with only One notching 4.9 stars. As one of our 4.9 scorers, they languish in 5th place due to their meagre sum of 11,978 reviews.

On the other end of the spectrum, waitrosegarden.com are even lower, ranking in 49th and only gaining 133 reviews. This lowly position is due to their average review score of 1.6, the lowest on our list. Providing quality service that your customers are keen to shout about is incredibly important.
