I'm not being the least bit unfair to those posters who disagree, the facts are "that" rose should never have been sent out in the first place!
There are always people who defend the indefensible and contradict some one or some thing!
As I said our gardening society bought at a discount quite a lot of plants and shrubs some years ago, most of the stuff was total crap!
I did not learn the lesson, two years ago I bought just under £100 worth of perennials mainly echinaceas to share with my father and father in law!
They were so called bare root plants and that is all they were roots,which arrived in poly bags, the plants were completely dried out, mouldy and dead, would Parkers accept it, no, even when I sent photographic proof!
They said plant them and if in a month they have not grow, let them know.
I, my father and father in law actually can tell when a plant is living or not!
It is bad enough getting sent rubbish for oneself without having to explain to others about them!
Anyway I eventually with a lot of correspondence got around £70 refunded, but in three parts they don't like parting with money, I gave up after that!
And I don't blame anyone but myself, as I had see the gardening society's order, so I should have taken heed!
