On 18-Oct-2016 the supplier responded:
Service rating :Thank you very much for your feedback. Only through constructive feedback can we make decisions about how best to improve the products and services which we offer.

I’m sorry that you were not entirely happy about the condition of your Cotoneaster plants on arrival. Our despatch team will always select healthy stock when preparing an order. However, they may have failed to notice that the plants, though healthy specimens, were quite pot bound. I am very sorry if this is the case.

In order to investigate further, and to ensure that this does not happen again, could you please send some photos of the plants and the roots to the email address below. We will come back to you as quickly as possible.

I ordered 21 plants all were nice & bushy except one, it was a single straight stem & looks as if it was put in to make up the 21st, still I'm sure it will grow and fill out, time will tell.Obviously as I only planted them yesterday I can't comment on how robust they are yet but all had plenty of healthy roots.
