J Parkers rose delivered dead/diseased?

The following description if from the Rose magazine regarding rose bushes!

Grade 1
Hybrid Teas and Grandifloras must have three or more strong canes, two of which are at least 18 in. (45 cm) long. The canes should be well-spaced around the graft.

Floribundas meet the same standards, but the canes need only be 15 in. (38 cm) long.

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!

I see people on here defending Parkers, on another post about another company there also were people defending that lot as well!

All that says to me is that the complainant should accept the rubbish that was sent to them and get on with it, whereas if proper plants had been sent in the first place they would not have had to complain!

Looking at the photo of the rose bush, that certainly does not look like a maiden plant, there appears to be at least five dead stumps and the main stem has dead wood near the top, on a maiden bush there should be only be fresh stems with no dead wood!

Shame on JParkers  and also on the posters defending them!

Ps I have nothing to do with JParkers!

Email them and let them know, they can be quite helpful>

Their bulbs, corms etc are good, but bare-root perennials roses shrubs are total crap, we bought a lot for the gardening society a few years back, as I said before, total crap, never again!

Also post on here, it lets others know!

Thank you!

Always like (have) to agree with Ladies I took a risk and bought lots of tulips and daff bulbs from Parkers last year, they have been magnificent so far!

"BUT" their bare root plants that I received in the past were an insult, they should never have been sent out, all were completely dries out, none grew!

Also agree with Wakeshine , Pheasant Acre Plants are the pits, don't answer emails when I am trying to find out if they are actually going to send out corms, don't send what colours  I actually wanted and when they do the season is nearly over, never again from that shower!

Ps not only do I order plants for myself, but also for my own father and father in law, it share and share alike!

I have chain link and chicken wire surrounding my plot!

Last summer when everything we germinating as they came though the soil they were eaten off,peas, beans,cabbage, kohl rabi,carrots, parsnips even gladioli stems as they emerged and they dug out the seed potato tubers!

I could not understand how they were getting in as there was chicken wire at ground level, the chain link upper most as the very small rabbits can squeeze though it, I have seen them do it!

A new plot holder had moved into the next plot,he was there one evening and said quite casually, my dogs were going berserk and I saw a rabbit on your plot, next thing it jumped the fence right into the jaws of my dog, end of rabbit.

I had not told him that I was having trouble with a rabbit, so he was not making it up!

I found it hard to believe as the wire is 4 feet high, but after that I did not loose any more seedling or plants.

Also, I never have seen any evidence of rabbits trying to burrow under the wire, only out on the paths between plots!
