doodle by andre: can i get a refund?


WERE THEY LEFT IN THE GARAGE by the delivery man before being discovered a day too late (toast!), or did somebody order plants that somebody else in the household didn’t know about (uh-oh, should have hidden that charge-card bill)? Or ________ (fill in the blank)?  What do you think is on Andre the doodler’s mind that prompted this latest utterance? I mean, I know we all kill plants…but hmmmm, not usually this fast.

    that is hilarious, i was just saying to a friend…i have all these plants to put in the ground, but for some reason i still want to go to the nursery and buy more! i think my husband shares andres feelings exactly!

    1. Margaret says:

      Welcome, Anne. Gee, that *never* happens to me. (Oh, right.) Nice to see you here and do visit again soon. We won’t tell your husband. :)

    I’m guilty of buying every not-quite-dead-end-of-season-on-sale plant there is. Then I panic and have to heal them in for the winter until I figure out where to put them. Just can’t help myself.

  3. Brenda says:

    I had a neighbor who mail-ordered privet plants for a hedge. Most died. I asked why she didn’t water them, she said “I can’t drag the hose all the way out there!” However, she did request a refund from the company which I thought was ridiculous. They were supposed to live without water and that’s the company’s fault?

    I have had the USPS hold a package at the post office for me… even though they did not tell me it was there. The box was marked “live plants” – what were they thinking?!? Also, buying mail order plants late in the planting window is a big mistake. Ask me how I know. At least I got a full refund.

      Welcome, Abby. I agree: Mail-order stuff should come early and not late. I have goofed on that score from time to time, too. Not pretty. Hope to see you soon again.

    Dang, I’m so guilty of buying plants and not getting them in the ground quick enough. Someday I hope to break that habit but right now I have three bargain bin finds from Lowe’s that are still waiting for homes. At least I’ve kept them watered–that counts, right?

  6. Bobster says:

    Andre, can’t relate…have absolutely no idea what you’re referring to.

    The non-gardening…er, I mean better half may have another opinion, but not asking ;-)
