    Shouldn't we have a section where we can rant about gardening shops and online stores - Which have gone out of their way to disappoint us? I'm sure I'm not the only one, as we've all had our fair share of getting cheated once in a while.

    So me-sa propose... :rofl:



    Something like the better business bureau. So that others who want to buy something, can become aware of some website's reputation, (if they continue to sell bad stuff).

    Of course, we can write positive reviews too. So that this proposed new section can function as a beneficial guide also.

    Yes we can already write about it in our Village Square section. But what we should have is a place where such complaints (as well as positive reviews) can be collected in one location.

    Just a thought...

    Probably, but I think that can be controlled.

    But what I feel we really need, is some way to fight back against the rampant fraud - Which is taking place nowadays, on majority of garden shops online.

    Oh let me start! Pick me!

    I saw this picture selling Giant Oriental Lilies. A child stood Under the flowers.

    I did not know I needed that, so I bought 50 bulbs, different lilies.

    Yeah, that picture was photoshopped or the lily was close with the child far away. Maybe 24 inch plants. Thanks White flower Farm.

    Like that?

    Or take this screenshot for example - Can you honestly believe this can be real???
    :headscratch:
    This goes beyond shameless!!!
    :frustrated:
    That's why I suggested a new section. Where we can share with everyone - What kind of fraud is taking place nowadays...

    Dirtmechanic, I've seen giant lilies, my mom's husband grew one at his old house. It was taller than my then-bf, who was 5'6". But shame on White Flower for sending regular bulbs!
    I might have a picture hanging around

    Uh Oh. This might turn into the apology thread if it takes a few years for them to get roots for that size!

    Personally, I think there is enough negativity in the world and GardenStew is where I come to escape it.
    I come here to chat with like minded people about gardening and other upbeat things.
    I love the fact that we don't talk religion or politics, or bash others.
    Just my 2 cents.
