I ordered some orienral poppies 4 for £12 -odd plus postage . They arrived not as small plants as Id had a few week ago from Jersey .
These were 1 to 2 inch dried up black roots , and 1 piece of white root 3 inch long . No planting instructions so I set them in pots of free draining soil . The same as Id done with the small jersey's actual plants .( Which were almost double in size since they arrived ).
I checked after a few weeks . I ended up phoning for a replacement as I couldnt even find the dried up roots .
I will follow this up when ? I recieve the replacement .
To give credit where its due , my shrubs which I had from them about 8 yrs ago are realy beautiful and in flower right now -
