thank you everyone.

if anyone is interested then here is my 2 emails and 2 replys from the company.

 

my email i sent them---hello, it said on your site that pot size will be 10 litre...it does not say pot size is a guide.

..the tree is very small for the price paid.....I did pay for a 10 litre not a small 7 litre..

please can you send me a larger size 10 litre that was paid for...

I paid for a 10 litre as I wanted a larger tree and instead you have sent me a 7 litre which is not much off half the size I ordered and paid for.

 .I really don,t understand what you are saying about supplier putting plant in smaller pot....

I could understand a 7 litre put in a larger pot but how do you take a larger plant and put it in a smaller pot ....and why on earth would anyone do that????

 

so please can you send me the larger tree that I paid for and please can you email me back asap..thank you..

 

 

 

this is their reply..----Thank you for your email concerning your plant. In general we use pot size as a
guide only as quite often a supplier will put a plant in a larger pot and sell
it for more, however I can assure you it would be the same size plant in real
terms.

 

i emailed them again and recieved this reply...i don,t understand what they are saying???

Thank you for your email

 

I understand your point but must correct you on one issue it did say that a supplier will put a plant in a LARGER POT, I can assure you the size of the plant above ground is the same.

 

i  have just emailed again and i am awaiting another reply from them

i told them that i can understand suppliers puting a smaller tree in a larger pot so they can sell it at a bigger price but cant understand why on earth someone would put a larger tree in a smaller pot??

 

..they seem to be a bad company  , i placed my order with them in june for a pomegranate tree.

they emailed me telling me it would be with me in 2-3 weeks times but it never arrived..i emailed them loads of times and never had replys so i phoned quite a few times and was promised it would be sorted but never was.

i was eventually told in september that they are out of stock.

i asked for refund but had no reply so i phoned up and was told to email their accounts dept for a refund

i done that but email said something about taking a month before they get round to answering it so i decided instead to buy a citrus tree instead of getting a refund..

tree was ordered and i thought i would have it in a few days but then the problems started again.

tree was meant to arrive one day but did not so i got in touch and was told they had a problem with courier and they said ,, to be honest i dont know when it will be delivered,,.

anyway tree eventually arrived but it is a 7 litre and not a 10 litre...

....they keep saying to me that suppliers put smaller trees in bigger pots.

but my tree if it is a 10 litre as they are saying has been put in a smaller pot..

its just stupid what they are saying...

thank you for the replies.

no size was given for each tree, just pot size in litres.

on their site the smallest tree/pot size they sell is 10 litre....yet i received a 7 litre.

would there be much difference between a 7 and 10 litre tree?

£80 just seams very expensive for the size of the tree i received. they are about half that price at my garden center.

i bought a 10 litre orange tree plant off a online internet site for £80.99.

£65.99 plus £15 post .

 

for some reason it took about 2 months to arrive.

i received it last week and it looked small to me for the price i paid.

i done some sums and found out the pot size is 7 litre not 10 litre.

the plant also has a tag saying clt 7 which i am guessing is saying it is 7 litre.

i emailed both the site owners saying it was 7 litre but had no reply so i emailed again not long ago and they emailed back saying this,

i get what they are saying but still don,t really understand...

should i not get a tree in a 10 litre pot if i paid for one.

surely if a plant is in a 7 litre pot then it is a 7 litre size and not a 10 litre??

thank you for any answers in advance
