To be fair i think the blame lays with the carrier, they had obviously been upside down for quite a while and throw around, another 100 miles and they would have been bare root! Planted and alive so fingers crossed.

On 08-May-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that your plants arrived after a somewhat bump ride - It certainly sounds like they had quite a journey.

You've done the right thing in getting them in the ground as soon as possible. On that basis we will certainly underwrite the plants for the coming season; if there are any problems with them do just let us know and we'll replace or refund where necessary.
