Do you think these are Dianthus Arctic Fire? (Story to follow...)
Normally on the packaging there is a label with your name and address on and the plant name on it too
I'm not sure but judging my your comment 'story to follow' and where they came from, I'm guessing possibly not??
Bumping as neighbour has been sent the same plant with his Dahlia order.
Did he order anything other than dahlias? Perhaps this is a free mystery gift.
Was it a rhetorical question?
Dianthus deltoides do look like that. They only have tiny flowers. Good for edging but not for cutting.
Was that what you were expecting?
They're certainly not dahlias.
Oh go on.... tell us the story.....
Looks about right here's a photo of a mature dianthus deltoids artic fire
They are reasonably easy to grow from seed the one in the photo was started from seed last year.
Allowing for the fuzzies I think that could be Dianthus deltoides.
You'll have to wait and see if it's Arctic Fire
Can you take a clearer picture and we should be able to better identify but they do look like dianthus deltoids
Why do you think these are not Dianthus Berkley?
Maybe it's easier for a big company to send a replacement than to get into long discussions and explanations.
I have also had few issues with T&M.
i had ordered 6 climber last year. The original did not arrive. It was supposed to be 2 different varieties of jasmine, passIon flowers and honeysuckle.
i've got the replacement now. But one of the plant had no leaves at all. This was supposed to be pink jasmin. Now it has gown a bit and it has the same leaves as one of the passionflower.
i have been very very disappointed with them And will never used them again.
I must just say, I ordered a few things from T&M this year and most of them were broken, because the postman decided to put them threw the letter box, and we were in at the time, won't buy anything more from them !!!!!
I think a few of us have had issues with T&M, I have only ever had the 'free' plants from them which on the whole have been ok. I did order some seeds though that took ages to come considering 3 orders placed in the same day, others with free delivery all arrived within a couple of days and T&M charged delivery which I expected to be first class - £2.95 for 2 small packets of seeds! It took over a week!!! I won't use them again.
