I purchased 4 different types of shrubs about 2 weeks ago - Winter Hardy Boxwood, Forsythia, Purple Smoke Bush, and Spicy Sweet Shrub. Yesterday I got a package (a green bag) outside of my house. I opened the bag, and I found some single thin branches in it, and they just look like dead wood single branches but with roots. I was wondering who was playing a joke with me and put dead wood branches outside of my house. I then look carefully at them, they have loop white stickers w/names of the shrubs. I then thought "NO WAY"! These are not the shrubs that I ordered, right? In Burgess' catalog, for example, for the Spicy Sweet Shrub, it says "1-2 ft shrubs sent", but what we got is 1-2 ft "STICK" sent. For the Hardy Boxwood, in the catalog, it says "3 year plants shipped", not "6 inches tall herb like plant shipped"!
Directgardening.com or eBurgess.com is a SCAM! Don't ever order from them! I have never been this unsatisfied before!
** Just a reminder, if you want to get a refund, you have to ship all the "sticks" back to them at YOUR OWN EXPENSE!
