Oh great joy. When I got home from work today my box with pepper and tomato plants from Burpee had arrived. I couldn't' wait to see the Chiltepin and Hot Lemon pepper plants and the Cherokee Purple and Brandywine tomato plants. How disappointing. These plants were first of all tiny and spindly. Then they were packaged so poorly that most of the "dirt" was missing and loose in the box. I hope I can salvage one of the Brandywine tomato plants and one or two of the Cherokee Purple plants. Thanks be to El Grande the pepper plants (all 6 of them) appear to all be alive. I shudder at the thought of the wrath of El Grande over the abuse of Chile plants. On the other hand, I ordered a dozen or so plants from Cross Country Nurseries http://www.magcon.com/ccn/ and they arrived looking magnificent. These were big, big plants. They were healthy, beefy looking just waiting to be planted. In other words the complete opposite of the plants from Burpees. Of course the standard disclaimer applies for both companies just a satisfied/unsatisfied customer.
