Molly the Witch in trouble

They weren't looking like that the other day were they?  We didn't look closely but I'd have thought we'd have noticed that.

Yours are further ahead than mine is - the leaves aren't opening yet.

Richard Hodson has already explained that he does not have a vested interest in Taylors - quite the opposite in fact - they are business competitors of his.

Hi lovegardens

Maybe tell us more about the site and what you're trying to do - perhaps we may come up with a simpler solution

I feed once when the first truss of fruit have set, again when the next truss has set, and so on. 

I use Maxicrop organic tomato feed.

Jinxy   I think you've misunderstood this thread - I can't think of any other reason for your comment.

Roy has not been 'blasted'.  We have been surprised as none of us has experienced poor service from Taylors, and we have suggested that he takes it up with them to give them the chance to put things right and to ensure that he gets the plants he has paid for.

If lots of us had bad experiences of Taylors (as many have had with T&M and others) Royd might just put it down to experience. 

However, if lots of us have had good service from Taylors (and therefore recommend them on here) and Royd has had poor service, then it's obviously worth his while to let Taylors know that his plants arrived in poor condition.  If they dojn't remedy the problem promptly I will be very surprised indeed.


You say

.... Royd is a newbie - like me - and I will certainly never ask advice on here again after my first encounter.

I'm confused -  you've made over 50 posts and as far as I can see I think everyone's been helpful when answering your queries.  Certainly Royd doesn't appear upset by any comments or suggestions on here.

The vine weevils are certainly out and about - I found one climbing up the wall in our sitting room yesterday afternoon
