I received an email from the Canny Gardener last Tuesday, 2nd April, telling me my plants (medium plugs) had been despatched, and to expect their arrival within 3 or 4 days. The following Monday they had still not arrived so I rang Canny Gardener, and was told that actually delivery often takes a week, and to ring tomorrow if they still didn't show.
Anyway, next day, that is today, 9th April, the postie turned up with a plastic bag which contained the remains of a polystyrene box, which in turn contained the remains of my plugs.
The box, which was fairly shattered, was held together with a couple of elastic bands, courtesy of the post office, and most of the plugs were, understandably, very much the worse for wear.
I have planted them up and we shall see how many actually make it.
Needless to say, I shall not be using them again, I will go back to the usual Jersey Plants or TM, at least they package the stuff securely.
Just so you know!
