    Default squashed yacon

    I ordered 5 plants from Real Seeds, and they arrived today. Unfortunately the parcel was squashed, and the little pieces looked a bit damaged but the growing tips looked OK. The post office had put them all in a plastic bag which apologised for the damage and said if I wanted to I could phone to get a claim form. I've planted them up, but it is hard to know if they will be OK yet, so do I claim or not? They cost 12.50, so if they do not grow... On the other hand, I don't want the delay of claiming then re-ordering.
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

    Hi

    I think they have sold out now anyway; possibly after the GW feature last week.

    I'd give them a go and see what happens.

    I hadn't checked, but that thought did cross my mind. It was seeing them on there that made me order them Saturday morning Can't fault the service from real seeds, they certainly got the order out quickly enough.

    I'd wait to see if they get better, then claim if they don't. If they've sold out, put in an advance order for next year and forget all about it, then you'll be really chuffed when they turn up unexpectedly!
