I did not realise J Parkers and T&M had a poor reputation!
Earlier this year, I ordered from JP for the first time, and thankfully did not have any problems (plants were for a customer). I ordered two bare root plants that arrived earlier than the predicted date.
My only negative would be, although the plants looked healthy, there were the odd poorly pruned stems which had dieback - I was easily able to prune the dead stems back, so why it wasn't done properly in the first place, I don't know..... anyways, thankfully the plants are now thriving!
I wouldn't order from D.T. Brown in a hurry. Couple of years ago, I ordered Nasturtium 'Jewel Cherry Rose' from there and once the seeds I sown came into flower, the majority were the usual orange and red colours, with the odd pink instead of being all pink!
