I purchased a packet of tomato seeds recently which contained six types of tomatoes or so it said on the packet. When I opened the packet it contained only one of the varieties named on the outer packet. On returning it to the garden centre I got my money back but I still want to get a selection of varieties. I could have got another packet but it probably contained the same types as I had already got. Has anybody else experienced this mistake?

Not with the seeds but I bought a " Crimson King " last year only to find I had actually bought a " Drummondii ". A case of mis-labeling , but very annoying nonetheless.

thank you foxylock, this is a common enough occurrence as the tendency will be to take out a few trees to compare for size and structure and assume they are all the same variety until you bring them home and then it may not be that convenient to bring them back. Thank you for your reply.

It definitely was inconvenient to try and bring it back as it was bought and planted in January and I didn't realise the mistake until I saw the varieagated leaves making an appearance in spring. However it's still a fine tree and will stay here now.
