Reference Sweet Pea variety " help for heroes"


By hijuju


What a mistake to make.
I bought these sweet peas from DT Browns and THEY have only made a mistake on the height theyve put on their website.
I ordered a variety of seeds last week and they came this morning and when i looked at sweet peas packaging they said train the plants on canes and or netting. But like i said the website said 6 inches.
I have just rang them up adntold them what i saw, and when the lady went onto the website she looked at the page and said that it was a mistake it should read 70 inches.
What a booboo.So now ive to plant them elsewhere in the garden instead of where i was going to plant them
How on earth can you make a mistake of making a plant 64 inches too short????
They will be changing the wording in the catalogue.

Did they 'reward' you in any way for correcting them? They should have done for saving them from lots of unhappy customers!
