Although I saw the photo of the mis-shapen plants, seeing them in person was a shock. I hadn't thought about how much they would be transported and handled if I was awarded Artisan, and I should have made a contingency for that.
They say every dark cloud has a silver lining, and I have found several silver linings in my cloud. The best is being the recipient of a very kind act by Teri Aaron. Another is the opportunity to back up my own words about the longevity of my plants. And yet another is the chance to re-examine my new designs before selling any plants to ensure they are up to my standards.
Here are a few BEFORE and AFTER pics.
