I never tried to talk to NC Farms. There was not much point, being the last shipment of the year. I wanted the smashed cuttings more than I wanted my money back.

And yeah, I thought that, too, about taking my own cuttings. The problem was that I got whiteflies and aphids very badly. I had so many bugs that I am now worried about having picked up a disease, which would then be spread by cuttings. Another thing my family members have told me - mums are notorious for coming back next year a different color, usually yellow. I don't have enough experience to verify that, and I don't know if modern varieties still have that problem, but it is a concern.
