My experience of "customer service" .

Posted: 12/06/2013 at 17:23

hiya jatnikapyar

touch wood I dont currently have any difficulties with bad customer service...I think Ive got to know who is good and who is bad.  surprised you mention Brookside and Crocus though.  Havent used them much...just once for Brookside..but plants have been delivered on time and in excellent condition.  Maybe if I had to complain I would have had a different story to tell.

I am like a dog with a bone though...ultimately I get good recompense for bad service.  have to be stubborn and persistent and speak to the manager.  Jatnikapyar, just hang in there and say you have this forum watching developments

What's your Flower of the moment?

i think dove is right about water too.  the soundand movement of it...even if just a small fountain somewhere....adds so much to animate the garden

hard to decide but because its new, its outside my kitchen window and because I love the rich orange colour my flower of the moment is Geum Tangerine Dream.  it has long stems of the most intense orange and its supposed to flower all summer

Good Evening FORKERS
