Wrong plants sent by mail order
Does it only happen to me?
Every year it is the same- I pay a premium price for a new variety, or a double variety, a new colour variation or a dwarfed "special improved " plant.
After growing them on and caring for them for months they come into flower and, guess what, the promised plants are just the same old varieties that have been around for years!
I have been nurturing 30 "Glorious Lilac Lace" primula plugs since October, eagerly anticipating the blooms. Today they started flowering, and without exception, they are standard gold lace polyanthus. (Grrr! - I already have about 20 large clumps of these in my garden, and certainly wouldn't have wanted any more of them).
The Customer Services rep tried to tell me that they might change colour later on!! Who is she kidding!
These came from the same company that last year sold me double cranberry cosmos that were not double and not cranberry either!
