GardenSite delivers products all over the world and we've teamed up with our couriers Parcelforce to offer a Granite Lady and Child Crystal Ball Water Feature as the splendid prize in a Mother's Day competition.
GardenSite has been sending garden products across the world using Parcelforce Worldwide for the past seven years. Quick and efficient delivery is an essential part of our customer service and we've found Parcelforce offers a service that perfectly suits our needs.

As an online retailer, GardenSite have many customers overseas and, with Parcelforce's global quotation system, we can quickly tell a customer how much a delivery will cost whether this is to Berlin, Boston or Brisbane.
Parcelforce collect from us and do the rest, with the parcels tracked so that customers know exactly when they will receive their purchases. Their service is very reliable and we know that every parcel we send out is in safe hands.”
The Granite Lady and Child Crystal Ball Water Feature is a lovely contemporary self-contained piece, made from top quality resin which perfectly resembles blue granite. Illuminated by LEDs, it has a low voltage pump and running water attractively spins the crystal ball so that it sparkles with light.
