Plan B

Posted by Tom Hoblyn on 26 Mar 2009 at 05:02 PM

Just got a call from a nursery saying that they will pot up my stuff for next week. I (being concerned that there's only 7 weeks to go) asked whether it would be ready for Chelsea and they replied that it would be touch and go!!!!! Why the hell didn't they discuss this with me before? The order went in before Christmas So it's back to calling every nursery up to see what they have in large sizes

My goodness, that sounds like a worst case scenario--their backing out in the 11th hou!  Not good.  Any good reason given??  I hope you get lucky with the next place.  Any self-respecting business would fulfill an order without fail, given the advance time to do it.  Good luck!!

I'm afraid that some nurseries are just like that here in the UK. Not to worry though as I went to see the plants today and they're already putting on some growth
