On 16-Nov-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced a high amount of failures. With bare-rooted plants you would expect a small level of failures, but not as much as that which you describe.

If you can contact us using the details below we will certainly arrange to send our some replacement plants at a convenient time for you. Similarly if there is anything else at all with which we can help please do not hesitate to get in touch.
