yet another rude online retailer...

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 11:09

Hi, apologies for starting another thread regarding shoddy CS from an online retailer. I bought some "Coboea alba" seeds from "nuts 'n cones"

I sowed them together with 5 other pots of seeds, including one with "Coboea (blue variety) which ALL germinated,but not the one in question.

His response was a long lecture about his 50 yrs. experience and basicly telling me that I was an idiot in so many words.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can put his reply E-mail in Quote, on the forum so you can read it and tell me if I am over reacting.

All this over 10 seeds worth £2.00p!! So please beware.

There is a lot you can do with WG Lullabelle, try Googling WG. You'll be surprised.

Lulla, I'm pleased to hear that your plants have come up. Slugs do not generally like them, but do attack alliums. Try a copper ring if the WG is in a pot, if not a few pellets will help,although I try not to use them.WG does have a milder flavour and does not have the strong odour the next day either

Hanging baskets and pots.

John, Marine is right, I am in the SE and, like you rearing to go. It's the warmth after noon and the sunshine that gives us this faux security. But I will not put the tender plants out as yet. The nights are still cold, and despite the warm day, the temp., I noticed   does plummet very fast  at night. It was minus one a couple days ago. So hang on a little longer

Yes Welshonion, I did smile when I saw the very healthy worms, what a bonus eh! I can't really take it back as I have used some of it to pot up strong established plants which,  I felt would be OK. But I am going there tomorrow and will take the "rubbish" with me to cause a stir! I feel cross that these people try to take us for a ride.

I called it "soil", meaning the black thing that I can grow plants in. And you are right Welshonion, shouldn't throw away soil. But, surely, I can't expect plants to grow in the rubbish they sold me as "MPC" Besides, isn't it meant to be "sterilised" or, maybe worms can survive the heat. I do apologise, silly me

Talking about rubbish compost, I opened a bag of MORRISONS multipurpose yesterday and found it full of sticks,wood chips,holly leaves, a few worms and fiberous roots.....very little soil. I am speechless. 

could someone ID this please

Yes, it is one of those, and beautiful too. Birds, esp. blackbirds love the berries. Enjoy
