6.5 litre pots

I have these and the examples I received were not great


I have them as well and my trees were excellent.

What did you do with the poor examples you were sent:
*return them?
*contacted the supplier?
*spoke to Amazon Customer Services?

6.5 litre potsI have these and the examples I received were not great

Is it really only 6.5 litres? How is the seller getting away without using that crucial decimal point? It states 65 litre on all 3 of the separate options available for those trees. Rather sneaky as that's a massive difference.
First up, the size is correct on the YouGarden site, where the same trees are £47 delivered.

Secondly, do folk really think that it would be feasible for each of these trees to come in pots that are each 40cms tall and 45cms in diameter, with the same capacity as many car's fuel tanks?

Firstly, we're not looking at any other websites. This is a deal associated with Amazon. So you determine the volume from the product information stated on their site.

Secondly, yes. Especially when the term 'commercial grade' is being used. We have some 60 litre storage boxes in the spare bedroom at the moment and they're not that large especially when you're thinking in terms of so-called commercial grade trees.

I only received them last week so haven’t done much, as I’m away at the moment.

As for what I thought wasn’t great about them - they had very little foliage on them. If I went to a nursery, I’d get a lollipop head of foliage rather than a handful of leaves

I am not starting an argument here but how do you (or anyone) know that this is a good deal (even at £28) if you don't check other sites to see what their prices are like?

With regard to 60 litres being not that large, the amount and cost of of packaging plus shipping cost due to the weight would, I suggest, prevent them being available at the the headline cost let alone the offer price.

In closing I would say that commercial grade means saleable, nothing more. If it had said professional grade, we would be into a whole new discussion.

The dictionary suggests...

commercial-grade. commercial-grade - Dictionary definition and meaning for word commercial-grade. (adj) of the kind or quality used in commerce; average or inferior.

I agree that of course you have to compare prices from different sources to determine whether a product is a deal or not, but you can only do that when you know that you're comparing like for like and that you have accurate product information in order to do so. You can't compare products when the fundamental basis for doing so is inaccurate. I could maybe understand it if they had the wrong info on that one item, but it was on all 3 items associated with the Amazon listing.

Plus, the OP who maintains they have these particular trees could've saved any confusion by putting the accurate size/volume on this deal themselves. Surely they must've realised when they were setting out the info for the deal that they were not anywhere near 65 litre tubs.

In reference to the commercial grade, you have my apologies, as I always assumed that commercial grade was meant for the industry or corporate sector as in this instance it would be for the likes of landscapers for a city council or similar.

Got out of the wrong side this morning? Quite finished having a pop at one who has good intentions? Watched the footy last night and it left a chip on your shoulder?

I copied and pasted the Amazon bullet point about pot size and when made aware of the mistake edited it.

I can only aspire to your perfection.

As I have never followed football, I wouldn't have a clue as to what you're referring to. Strange comment.

Heat for the fairly cultural argument. Quite a few politicians could learn a thing or two on how to be polite in such situations.
