Lonicera nitida hedge plants


I paid extra for te 400 to 600mm plants. None of them are 600mm tall and some aren’t even 400mm tall.
Some of the plants arrived damaged because the were packed two rows high with the upper plants on top of the lower row
They could have more carefully stacked to avoid this damage

The plants were bone dry and looked dead. A great number of the leaves had come off them and were loose in the box. I have put them in a bucket of water to see if I can revive them.
