What have Thompson and Morgan sent me?

Maybe - but all they had to do was confirm I had been sent the correct plants......

Mainly because T&M have said they will be sending me 36 replacements in May! They offered to do this after I sent them a photo...

The plants I received initially were in excellent condition.... They just didn't have the typical dianthus leaf shape I expected and I thought I would check....

Maybe they are dianthus deltoides! I'll let you all know.

OK. A bit more of the story (will tell the full story later.) I ordered Dianthus Arctic Fire, wasn't sure that the plants I received were what I ordered, sent a photo to T&M, heard nothing, five emails and one phone call later (cost me ??2 because I didn't realise their customer service was a premium number), they agreed to send replacements. So I assume that what I received were not Dianthus Arctic Fire.

I appreciate the offer to replace - but I have 36 of these plants and just wonder what they are. Can anyone help? They were ordered as 36 plug plants from the Spring catalogue. I think they may be lobelia or laurentia. Any other ideas? Or shall I just wait until they flower and let you know?

P.S. Will let you know when the replacements arrive.

 Problem solved at long last (husband is wonderful!) Seems it was all to do with size of image...ANYWAY: any ideas much appreciated. My vine weevil treatment doesn't seem to have had any disastrous effects - but do you think this is the problem?

Done that! Didn't solve the problem - but caused loads of others! But thanks for trying to help.

Still no luck. I keep trying , but still come unstuck when I get to the final stage. The only choice I have is to "save" when what I want to do is insert the photo. I've never had this problem before, but am very fed up because I want to show you some photos!

No, it isn't! Although I took the photo on my iPhone it's my laptop I'm trying to upload from. Will have another go tomorrow. Tempted to take another photo - on my camera this time. Thanks for your interest Victoria Sponge.

Still cannot post my photo....very frustrating. Have never had the problem before. Have posted a query on Talkback. No luck with one suggestion given so far. I get as far as "Upload" and then it asks me to save. I had expected the usual "Insert"... will keep trying. (Still got Path: p at the bottom)

I've never had a problem uploading photos to the forum before - but can't get it to work this time. Would it have anything to do with the message which seems to be constantly at the bottom now: Path img. I've never noticed it before. How do I get rid of it?
