I live in St. Albans, WV and our local K-Mart store is selling pint size containers with 'cultivated stock' of Gro Fast Perennials - grown and packed at Pondersa Nursery, Hamilton, MI. My internet search for this company lead me to your website, for they have no site of their own.
I purchased a perennial Lupine plant which was not in very good shape, however I was set on bringing it home, putting it in the nursery part of my house with other seedlings and plant starts to get it in shape for spring planting. The plant has shown no signs of regrowth. My quandry is (1) will this Lupine plant root system grow again this season for a spring planting, if not this spring, will it ever regrow and is it worth keeping? (2) if the plant dies, is there any type of money back guarantee from Ponderosa Nursery? If so, how do I obtain it?
I think Ponderosa should know that some of the retailers they are selling to are not adequately handling their product and therefore, no one is profiting. I'm sure that the unsold inventory will be trashed and what a waste of time and natural resources. Maybe retailers such as K-Mart could donate "last legged" plants to groups in the community for a Green Friendly world.
I apologize for having to use your space to air my frustration.
