Fred Boutin Lavender plant order from Nursery

Jerseymec(6b)April 3, 2014

I just received my plant order from a Nursery and my lavender was completely dried up. It was very small, all curled and shriveled and the roots were very dry. I didnt expect it to be so tiny. I potted it and watered it well. Its in my house now with some sunlight until it gets nicer outside. Can anyone suggest special care tips for this plant?

Thanks very much

A replacement from the company hopefully?

I'd be very surprised if this plant is still alive. I also think you need to ask for a replacement.

Yes, ask for replacement. 'Fred' is a particularly wonderful lavender and deserves better treatment, as do you the customer.

Every nursery that I have had problems with when a live plant that I received was severely damaged or dead, gladly made it right. Problems sometime happen. Just contact them and explain your problem to them respectfully.
