    Totally blind sided last week by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, fined for not leaving the spieces tags on our installs. Didnt even know it was a thing. Of course they will "update" there newsletter for better communication, whata money grab.

    Zone 5? I thought Serta was more of a full sun - warm climate mattress. I'm in zone 7, pushing the limits for my Tempurpedic, but even I knew not to remove the label.

    Bwhahaa WHAT???

    Who did you do the install for?
    Was this a specific contract FOR DoA?
    Because leaving tags on plants certainly isn’t a thing
    There may be certain contracts that stipulate it for one reason or another, but if someone at the dept of ag can’t id plants without a tag, or read the plan that states what’s in that location, they need a new job!

    If contest that unless it’s on the contract

    You found a list puppy that’s confused and needs to be led back to their master for a scolding.

    Plant tags are for nursery purposes
    They can’t be removed IN THE NURSERY, this is consumer protection, so you don’t get charged for a jap maple and leave with a mugo pine

    Did you ask for chapter and line?

    There's no way that's a law.
