last week my local gc ordered some plants for me. He is a newly recruited plant manager there with all the associated keeness and determination. "I can get those for you" ....he said...."10 days or so and I have a couple of suppliers too in case"
called on him today. No joy with his orders. "Currently unavailable" he said. "This is why I buy online" I replied
so I have ordered online....again. Expect plants early next week. If I ordered a couple of days ago they would have been delivered by tomorrow (they avoid possible weekend delays)
my local gc is one of a national chain, has a "click and collect" service that sounds superb but actually is poor. I often remind the manager I try to buy locally but online through the (good guys) is a far better option for me.
Gripe over .....even have a little rain to refresh the garden and....and...my plants are coming
