Opinions on Blueberry Liner
I received a poorly packaged order from a nursery yesterday, and I'd appreciate opinions on the overall health and condition of the blueberry liner pictured below. As you can see, the roots are largely exposed because a significant portion of the potting soil fell off during shipping (the root ball wasn't wrapped or protected in any way). It looks like it started the journey in less than prime health, and then it spent two days with exposed roots in a cardboard box in temps in the upper 80s, all the while being battered by gallon pots that were also loose in the box. Given the complete lack of packaging, I'm surprised it's still in one piece. How would you respond if this were your plant? Would you demand a replacement, or would you shrug your shoulders, plant it, and expect it be fine?
