Help with mail order plants

What were they supposed to be?

I would be demanding my money back.  Not fit for purpose.

If they don't pay up and you paid by credit card, complain to the credit card company as well. They are liable for faulty goods as well.

Looking good punkdoc. The rain has bashed down my remaining daffs and a few of the tulips.

Last year I had some neglected cacti dumped on me. I repotted them, left them outside all summer, gave them a feed with cactus food once a week, dumped them in the conservatory all winter, and now look...

Is this possible?

I think the only thing that will grow well there are ferns.

I see a mallow on the left and a hardy geranium infested with couch grass(twitch) on the right. Not sure what the 2nd from left is.

Yes, they hung around together, prettyface went missing for a bit and Grommit used to get mouthfuls of food and disappear and then come back. We think she was injured and he was feeding her, because when she reappeared after a week, she had a bit of a limp.

They dispersed at the end of the summer.  There was some work done in the wood next door, and the foxes have moved elsewhere but we still get transients through the garden.

A very nosy little fox, he let me pick him up and carry him around the house, all the while very curious about what is going on. His sister was always more wary.  usually with the foxes, we have to sit absolutely still when we watch them.

That's a fox cub  that I hand fed a few years ago.(2010) He used to come to call each night and take food out of my hand. As he got older he got more wary.

I think I have put this on before but if you havn't seen it.
