buy Pink Carnation for sale in CT

The other day I picked up Pink Carnation for a customer and went to drop it in their gardens. After putting down about 2 yards they decided they didnt like it and told me they would not pay unless I took it out and got them something else. I am stuck with 4 yards of this stuff. If there is anyone in the CT area that needs it PM me.

What the heck is pink carnation? The plants?

If they oredered it, it's theirs and they owe you for it, plus whatever else they decide to buy.
If they welch on the deal, get 2 yards of process and dump it at the end of their driveway "no charge".

Sounds like 'pink carnation' is some sort of freaky colored mulch.

Pink Carnation is stone, goes for $125+ per yard. Its primarily white with gray and pink hues in some of the stones.

I made the whole garden for them and put belgium blocks around it or else I would just say screw it. I already have to much invested in it to worry about not getting paid because of the stone. Might as well finish it and still make a profit then to forget it now for a loss.

You need to find some elderly italians they love the stuff. A tad bit gawdy to say the least.
