I have just received an order from Parkers, Sam and the plants are all fine. They were a little dry on arrival and needed a good soak but they look merry as crickets now. I think you have just been unlucky. Before you write them off, though, give your perennials a chance because they just may be dormant. I wouldn't give them fertiliser, or strong sunlight, though, I'd pop them into a general purpose compost and put them somewhere cool and bright. I really hope they perk up. Shopping online is always doubtful but the usual rule applies - the more you pay, the better chance of getting a good product and Parkers are about as cheap as you will find. My neighbour got some smashing perennials from Lidl!
