It will be interesting to find out  My cuttings are about 4" tall and in a module tray - - I will shake of as much compost as I can and pot them int o a 3" pot - we will see what happens

Terry - that is just not good enough in my opinion!!!
If I was in your position I would phone again,ask to speak to the manager or person in charge and insist on a new batch or my money back now -not sometime in the future -what a bloomin' cheek
Tell them if they want the plants back they can come and collect them.
Any reputable company would tell you to keep the damaged plants and send a replacement now.
The plants sent to you are not fit for purpose - it is their fault they were not packed properly - not yours.

Theft of Patio Planters and Containers

Posted: 10/04/2013 at 12:56
Maybe have fewer but larger pots which will be heavier and less attractive to steal.i have some of my fairy ornaments in our front garden containers and I always wire them to something e.g the base of the standard fuchsia. I have a basket tree with 4 baskets so I wire them to the frame of the tree.

Terry - you must complain- that is certainly not good enough
I have had 3 Canny Gardener catalogues sent to me over the past few weeks and I hate to admit it but I really am tempted to order some Streptocarpus plugs as I adore them. The offer this time is for 25o/ o off and half price delivery - plants are ??8.49 for 20 medium plants --around ??6.30 with discount and p& p will be ??2.45
Please tell me that I don't really need them -but I do,I do

I haven't received or sent any unpleasant emails. I won't be posting any more on here until it calms down and gets back to gardening.
