My apology went to the Vesey's Seed Co. on P.E.I. an Atlantic province in our lovely country.
The problem was I ordered Samaritan Jo clematis and the first very small plant failed ... so in my controlled panic (because I have to admit lusting quit heavily after this clematis) I e-mailed the company about the failure and they were kind enough to send me another plant (which again was so delicate and tiny)
I watched and watched and came to the conclusion this plant had failed as well ... again with the e-mail and promise of a credit .. so I thought the problem was resolved and I would just have to get over the fact this plant was not for me.
Garden fate had a different plan for me ... This week a very unassuming clematis I had tangled up with my Zephirine rose started to bloom ... the flower was not what I expected .. it tugged on my memory and of course the embarrassing realization was "Holy C**P !!! this is Samaritan Jo ... and I have to eat CROW!
That is what I just did this morning in an email to Vesey ... explaining the matter and apologizing.
Has anyone else ever had to do this ?? BIG sigh !
Here are my pictures of "Proof of Life"
Thank you and thank Vesey ... my red faced issue is resolved I hope ?
Now for a few other garden treats ?
