Plants just dumped in stores not looked after-Anyone notice this

What really annoys me is my Local Tesco have outside plants for sale but insist on having them in the middle of the store where its hot and don't bother to water them. Today there were "Gardeners world" hanging baskets dumped on a rack. The price was£15 but the condition they were in was not worth £15 and the soil was bone dry. they could have had them outside in the entrance canopy where they have all the compost bags. This would have been at a cooler temperature which would imitate the actual temperature that these hanging baskets would be acclimatised to
I'm guessing this was display orders from Head Office but as there is nowhere outside they could put it , this was their solution.
People were peering through the gloom trying to see the plants 🙄.
This week the marquee has gone.
These supermarkets and diy shops aren’t plant nurseries. I’ve never been to my local independent garden centre and found anything in a dodgy state, it’s always near perfect.
More expensive, probably. I don’t know what we would do if we lost them though.
Not so this year, as someone has mentioned Tesco as well, I wonder what’s going on.
