Chris Bowers fruit trees (Norfolk)

Has anyone on here successfully bought trees off the above company?

 

I ordered and paid for a few apple trees back in the middle of November, I think delivery was quoted as "late november onward".

Middle of december, not heard anything so I asked and they said it will be "going to despatch in the new year,"

 

 

Then today they send a slip out in the post saying "we are estimating delivery for mid-late February...."  :blink:  "....we have ample stocks and your order is reserved with your name on it.."

The note in the post came in a hand written envelope!

 

The order was only for 4 trees, you wouldn't think it would take them this long to pull them out the ground and put them in a box :vollkommenauf:

 

 

Does anyone local to the area know the nursery, are they even still trading :dontknow:

As a Norfolk resident I take great offence at these comments. 

 

I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I've suffered abuse on the subject. 

 

That's 6 time's goddammit.

Whales were land mammals then returned to the sea. Possibly Norfolk choosing same path and will be hunted by little yellow blokez with explosive sticks in the future. K
