...and the nursery owners are usually so ebullient about their plants.  Something exciting talking to them as well as sharing experiences

agree about Bakker.  When I first got imterested in plants I was persuaded, inspired and duped by the Bakker catalogues. Their use of over the top names and descriptions  meant I could not resist these special beauties.

I did get money back the last time I ordered from them. 

the newspaper ads are often  no better.  


leather jackets

Well, thst's not good enough Sally. 

Are you happy for them to take turf back?  If so, that's what you should do.  

Leatherjackets should not be in that turf if the suppliers are genuine and reputable.

ask to speak with the manager/owner and ask him to inspect the turf himself.  If you paid by credit card you can contact the bank on the basis of not fit for purpose.  

Do you have a receipt?  Pay by cash?  

Be firm and state that the turf supplied is not as described.  Tell the turf supplier you intend to contact Trading Standards if they do not reimburse you.

That should be fine for overwintering Bonsai Marc.  Seedlings will still need reasonable light but garage window should provide that if of reasonable size
