Horrible Order From Chalk Hill
I ordered 12 clematis the second week after the going out of business sale was announced. They were all supposed to be in stock when I placed the order. A Chalk Hills order was delievered today. Of the twelve different clematis I ordered, they sent two.
I specifically marked no substitutions. They not only sent almost all substitutions, but apparently what was left over. I got duplicates of three different, clematis. Harlow Carr, Proteus, and Patricia Ann Fretwell. They sent a very ugly one to me (My Angel). None of the special ones I ordered were sent. Instead of Broughton Star, they sent a a white Montana that I will not plant. Some of these will be shovel pruned to begin with.
In my opinion, Chalk Hills went out of business much later than they should have. WhaT HORRIBLE SERVICE! Pitiful plants. The proteus smelled rotten, looked dead and had one dead appearing single vine.
I was so excited when I ordered them, and now I wish I had never heard of them.
