Lasciate perdere! Bakker e...la mia insoddisfazione. Bakker che delusione! Leggi le opinioni su Ciao.it
As the saying goes... “Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Say it ain't so. I usually don't go around blabbing about my gardening love affairs, but this recent fling with Bakker-it.com was, sadly, a very short-lived romance. Well I'm over it now. Consider this an updated opinion of my experience with the catalog/mail order company. Three strikes and you're out!
In the early fall of 2009, I ordered a variety of bulbs which included the more costly Himalayan blue poppies and allium forelocks. We planted them all but neither himalayan or allium came up this spring. Of the rest that did develop (blue alliums and assorted freebies), overall flower quality was very weak.
In April of this year, an order for Salvia Hotlips microphylla rootstock arrived in a nicely packaged container but after flowering, it turns out not to be Hotlips but Hardy Plumbago! (above photo) Do the math. 2 bulbs plus 1 rootstock equals customer dissatisfaction. See ya' later Bakker-it.com, it was sweet while it lasted.
For some good news...the tomato plants grew a LOT in the past 2 weeks.
