Hello everyone.

I looking for help/advice regarding the deapth to plant Rose's.!

I have always been told to keep the budding union of roses above ground.

Three times recently I have seen on TV where they have said to plant the union below soil level.!

Is this correct.?

Regards and thanks to all.

"Disapointed" was in my first letter to Thompson and Morgan, I actually started by saying: "I'm Sorry to Report"...

I have tried to copy and paste my original letter to them onto here but am unable.

As for "Patience"

I believe that waiting for 4 months before getting the plugs I had ordered which were then of no use to me is more than Patient...!!!

To start with:-


As having been in the retail trade most of my life, I know how it can feel being accused of something that you are NOT in control of.

I have ordered many products from different companies, there have been good and bad things happen, but usually after a letter or telephone call, the problems is solved.

Not with Thompson and Morgan, the lady who I spoke with was Downright Rude from the word go.

Also I did not slam the telephone down on her, I told her as she was being so rude I was going to end my call.

As for not writing or sending emails. What are these services to be used for...???

I have always believed that ANY company can make a mistake, we are "all" human.

I Believe the way it is Rectified is the way to judge that same Company.

I have now Stopped using Thompson and Morgan due to their totall lack of responce to a problem with an order that I placed with them.

I had orderd a tray of "Plugs" which when they arrived were almost all dead.!

I wrote to Thompson and Morgan with "No Responce"

I telephoned them and was told the plants would be replaced, nothing arrived.

I telephoned again, got a "Very Rude" lady, eventually I put the phone down.

I then sent an e.mail, every day for 56 days with not one reply.....


But I did receive a "Replacement Pack" 2 months later with no letter or any kind of communication.

Obviously this was far too late for my planed layout.

A large number of my Allotment Buddies feel the same about Thompson and Morgan due to their own idividual problems.
