I return plants for all sorts of reasons...genuine of course. Be prepared for argument but accept you have the right to return goods if not up to standard. And, get compensation if you bought a plant several momths ago and find its flower colour was imcorrectly named.
Most reputable gc's will accept's their first shrug of the shoulder you have to ignore. Always ask for the manager....often the person you are speaking to will then offer to accommodate you. Then,,,,,and only then,,,do you remove your hands from his throat....

J Parkers let down

Look, parkers, T & M, etc., have so many......SO MANY ....complaints aired here that there is obviously something wrong. These people aren't making it all up.
There will be satisfied customers but I'm not one of them.
One thing is certain......nobody will get top quality plants from them. Nothing that will show flowers for at least a year and probably longer.
Buy seeds from T& M....they are fine. Bulbs too. But steer clear of their plants. They will arrive in a matchbox and a hefty postage charge.
