    OMG..just re read your post.
    Was there a Magnolia in the pot with the willow?

    Never in 100 years is that a Magnolia of any type.
    Complain...send pics and demand a full refund.
    That is just disgusting.
    So sorry.

    It looks like a gift from the birds..a weedy willow.
    Such as Salix caprea......common name goat willow.
    Recommend you get rid of it asap.

    P.S. Do tell everyone who your Mum bought it from so we know to avoid them.

    Thanks guys, the Magnolia seems ok, I separated them as soon as I saw it, replanted the Mongolia but kept that till I knew what it was. She ordered from Gardening Express, also got some bare root roses which are obviously dead so have already complained and she will never use them again.

    I will get rid of it as soon as it stops raining  :D
