Greenhouse sensations

I have been trying to buy an Xmas present from Greenhouse sensations. I am a huge fan and believe there are lots of fans of theirs out there. There website seems down and unresponsive. In addition, a number of their distributors (like Harrod Horticulture) now have notes such as "discontinued" or "out of stock" against their products.
Have they gone out of business?

    I saw your post yesterday and tried to find something to indicate if they're still trading.
    I couldn't find anything to suggest they are still trading.
    I suppose it's possible they are having some sort of major reorganisation, but that may be grasping at straws.
    Companies House reports the company is still Active, but that may not be fully up to date.
    I did find some historic info though-

    Its working for me. Its not a cached page in my browser as I can browse all the links tried it in 3 browsers and see the site every time. I am using a VPN and am currently browsing from a server hosted in London.

    Strange - I can't get to their website on my Windows PC, but my Android mobile brings up their website straight away....

    Update - on their site on my mobile it says - 
    Unfortunately we cannot process any order at the moment. We will be back online as soon as we can. Apologies for any inconvenience

    I also tried it through another browser and got to the site - but if you click on any product, it just says, "unable to process an order at this time" (which it has been saying for nearly 3 weeks now). Very sad if they've gone out of business - great products!

    Using online tools it states the website is down. But dropping to a CMD prompt on my computer I can ping https://www.greenhousesensation.co.uk/ and get a reply. I suspect there's a DNS issue somewhere on a DNS server and the address is not resolving correctly.

    Running a tracert test shows timeouts so there's probably a DNS server offline or down somewhere along the route.
