Hello Jim Erdman, 

I'm sorry to hear you had a problem with two Evans Cherries you purchased 
from Fedco.  And especially that someone didn't get back to you.  Our policy 
is pretty easy.  If a plant does not meet your expectations during the first 
growing season, we will send you a full refund or a replacement, no 
questions asked.  We prefer to give refunds because then you can reorder 
whatever you want from us or anyone else.  We do not require photos or spent 
tags or anything.  We do ask that customers contact us during that first 
year.   In your case, feel free to send me a personal email message and 
we'll send you a refund this winter. 

Re: grafting tape.  Tape that is made specifically for grafting is extremely 
inexpensive.  We sell it by the single roll.  I imagine others do as well.  
We sell two types.  PVC tape is nasty for the environment but is tough and 
durable and excellent for topworking applications.  It must be removed at 
some point (generally after about one year).  Parafilm tape is not strong 
enough for topworking but is excellent for bench grafting.  It is stretchy 
and decomposes fairly rapidly in the nursery.  It generally does not need to 
be removed.
