    Default T&M - overselling and underdelivering at the moment, it would seem

    Last week I ordered some plug plants and a miniature raspberry bush using the free postage link on here. The plugs have come and the raspberry is 'to follow'. Fingers crossed!

    ^That strikes me as pretty quick.

    I have had a few problems with delivery in the past but always ends well. I think at this time of year the bulk of seed and plant merchants suffer supply and demand issues.

    I have had far worse experiences from another well known company.

    I think its the luck of the draw with some of these companies. I've had "issues" with several.
    There was summat on the radio this morning about Amazon publishing fake 5* reviews (as if!!).
    Seems you can't trust anyone these days.

    I rang T&M last week as I ordered seeds the week before and they hadn't arrived, seeds usually not suffering delays like plant orders can.
    They said they were having problems and 'hoped' my seeds could be delivered this week

    Not the first time I've had problems, so I'll take my custom elsewhere in future....

    I now try to avoid them and their sister company. Being large companies quality and service seem to suffer somewhat but they could be worse
