Exactly what I wanted and in good condition

Ribes sanguineum 'King Edward VII' hedge plants

Had bought some of these plants earlier in the year they were received in good condition and all have done well. The three I received this time were very leggy very few leaves. They look like they had been neglected. Planted immediately on arrival, been feeding and watering the same as I did with the others, but at present I don't know if they are going to be alright. Disappointed in these. I am now trying to propagate some myself in case they die.

Would have been good if all plants had been of the same quality; 3 were good and one was poor.
