A Rant

I bought quiet a few packets of seeds from my local garden center last year and last night when I came to sow a packet I found to my horror no seeds in the packet at all.image I've not kept the receipt from the garden center so I have contacted the seed company they came from. 

Hopefully they can/will send a replacement but fingers crossed.

    I bought a  pack of oriental poppy seeds which to my surprise had not one single seed in the foil packet.

    My daughter said that with a packet of petunias, when I took it out of the bin, they were in there, like the finest dust.

    Take it back to the garden center next time you stop by, they may replace it for you.  It's worth asking, even without receipts, etc.. they want to keep your business.

    Cheers Blue Onion. Yesterday I got my GW mag delivered and also in the post was an envelope from the seed company. I opened it up and got a replacement packet of the seeds plus another.
