The 6 plants look full of promise. A little compost had spilled out because the plants could move about in the box. What about a cardboard nest device to hold the plants still? Less sturdy stems might have got broken.

Good prices and communication, however the PLSC hedging we bought had a bug... the leaves have been eaten... I am concerned to plant these as they may die or the bug spread... the leaves have holes in them!

On 18-Aug-2014 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, it really is appreciated. I'm concerned to hear that the Purple Leaf Sand Cherry has some kind of bug. We regularly spray our plants to ensure this is not the case (as is standard practise within the industry). I've just been to inspect the plants that we currently have on the nursery and, although some sporadic circular holing which is typical of Prunus at this time of year, there is not so much to suggest insect activity so I would be very grateful if you could send through some pictures detailing the damage to the leaves and any of the bugs themselves.

This will enable us to best advise you of the next action, be it the trimming of leaves or the replacement of plants, I want to make sure this is sorted out for you as soon as possible. Please send your photographs to 'enquiries@best4hedging.co.uk'.
