Rushing things...

Jane is right.  The bulb companies aren't paying attention well enough to
shipping dates.  I had a bit of a tussle with Brent and Becky's Bulbs about
shipping as they wanted to ship late October or November and I had to bend
their heads (not so politely) by saying I was a professional nurseryman and
to ship them in early September as, by golly, I know what I'm doing...
Which reminds me - I need to call and remind them, just in case.

When I ask my customers to tell me when they want their bulbs and plants, I
respect their knowledge of where they live and comply.  Consequently, I
can't think of a single claim formally made for dead plants.  I always hope
they will tell me, however.  The worst that has happened is that they claim
to have received the wrong color or they did not receive a specific bulb,
although in that instance, I distinctly remember packing it.  Which goes to
show - you should examine your shipping material quite carefully...

I think it is necessary to be forceful about shipping dates, as rarely do
people at these companies have any knowledge about our local conditions.
