Letter 2 – Michael from Bloxwich


Another letter from the Suttons postbag:

Dear Sir.

I am writing to you to let you know the reason as to why I have not placed any orders for plants with you.

As you are aware last year we had record rainfall levels in what should have been drought conditions. this led to my garden being flooded from the middle of Nov 2012 to April 2013. The damage caused by the flooding has meant I have to replace garden fencing panels, 3 sheds, 1 greenhouse, lawn and path out of my pocket.  So buying plants for this year is not an option. But could you please keep me on your mailing list as I will be buying from you in the future.

Your faithfully,

Michael Fitton.
