Ok, so the replacement Fushia Royal collection turned up (T13369549) on friday, I potted straight away into a decent potting compost and watered (looked a touch dry) paid £15 including delivery
I`ve got to say I`m really disappointed :(
10 "postiplugs" about 1" high, 4 out of the 10 already have died, leaves dropped off and left with a withering ever growing brown middle.
a few days earlier Petunia Amore Queen of Hearts arrived (T13375308) 1 had shriveled in the post, potted on the rest after watering etc.
again 10 "postiplugs" about 1" high. Very sorry looking plugs.
being brutally honest, I wont be purchasing posti plugs ever again, they just arent value for money considering loss and the incredibly small size of them v`s what I can get from a GC using the Kindergarden plugs (at least 4-5 times the size) for £1 each.
I will continue to get my seed from T&M as the range is brilliant and great value but seriously let down over this.
Using the order ref above you can see I`m still buying seeds (where and when I`m going to grow I`ve no idea as already out of room lol)

Beautiful day up here
first some trellis from poundland, £1 a piece !!
Then made a new bed for the mini greenhouse
then with the help of a friend built new mini greenhouse and table (6hrs !!! And my backs in pieces lol)
Ended up putting it in a sunnier position
Very productive day

Hi Stephen and Peter
Thank you for your comments. I am very sorry that both of you have encountered disappointment with your recent deliveries. I will ensure all of your comments on passed on to our Despatch Team so they can liaise with our Couriers.
P.S Peter, I have passed your comments on to Elliot who said thank you for your kind words :DSee original post
no worries, it wasnt his fault and he assured me replacements would be sent asap so no long term damage done, still no sign of them so I guess there are just AWOL.
As-long as replacements arrive in the next few weeks then I`m happy :)

so, after waiting a few days for Fushia Royal collection and Fushia Pink Fizz (both state with courier on 09/03) I rang T&M.
Tracker number for 1 order states delivered to Hermes HUB on 09/03 and no further update.
Tracker number for the other order simply has no information against.
Spoke with Elliot who gave great customer service in checking it all out and obtaining the above information.
Both orders replaced however, both plant type wont be available for me until mid april.
Doesnt fill me with confidence, all seeds are delivered by Royal Mail and in a very timely fashion.
Hermes on the other hand, awful rep and proven here.

Nice Peter, they make perfect ground cover. Don't worry about the slugs for wargrave pink, she's left untouched. Cut back in August for a second flush of flowers.See original post
Excellent, thanks mark, they are in big 25 litre containers, hoping to get many years from them. I have found a nursery selling purple haze geraniums but they dont open until april. they have reserved 3 for me
