    I'm guessing this isn't a good thing to have on a new plant?

    @Lottie222 Are they charging you for sending more plants out, or are they freebies?

    Freebies yeah. Was weird as I fb them and since they were so slow I rang. Woman on phone said she would send a replacement, fb people came back and said they'd checked and it was frost - I said new ones were coming and she said that's fine but please don't throw away these as they'll be fine... Not sure what to think so I've donated them to a friend LOL

      This is what frost damaged blackberry leaves look like, a dark barring rather than blotchy:
