Re: Chinese ginger/now guarantees

In our area, nurseries will not guarantee Cornus florida, or any of the Rhododendron species, and with good reason: they are in great demand due to advertising and garden magazines, but conditions here make survival very unlikely.

Kitty, my experience in the greenhouse is many think there should be a
guarantee regardless of the cause of death. Example, a hanging container of
impatiens purchased early, we give them information that this is a very tender plant
will not tolerate cold & wind and has not been subjected to the outside
environment. They take it home, hang it outside immediately, we experience cool
temps & strong winds and they bring it back to the greenhouse wanting a
replacement plant because it did not last over the weekend. We frequently hear the
comment 'Lowes guarantees'.
On the other hand, we have some high end nurseries that will not
guarantee a tree or shrub unless they plant it at the cost of half of the purchase
price. This quickly drives me away as I will give the utmost care to a woody
plant not wanting to lose growth time but things do happen.
