I personally think this would open up a can of worms in addition to more work on a already busy volunteer. 

In addition, legally the PBS does not sell plants so can't refund a sale since no sale occurred.   All money involved are donations.  To offer otherwise would blur the lines of nonprofit.   I could be wrong, but either way not very practical for a nonprofit volunteer group.

I understand that there is no "guarantee" or anything of the kind. In light of the increase in "price" on bulbs, I think it might be logical to suggest that if a higher-priced bulb arrives in poor condition (unsaveable) or dead, then a return policy might be in order?
