    I just thought I'd mention this, if there's any interest.

    I ordered a Wollemia nobilis from National Geographic late last week, and was told it would ship in March/April, when the weather warmed a bit. This was not to be, however, because it just came today. The mature growth doesn't appear damaged, but all the new growth is bronze-colored, and of flabby texture. This seems about right for being exposed to temps around -7 C for a time. I'm in central Ohio.

    I don't think I'll return it, as I doubt it would appreciate taking another trip through the cold. :-)

    Contact them and say that because they sent it out early, it died of cold in the transit, and that they must replace it free of charge under their legal guarantee obligations. Keep the original; if it survives, then you have two, if it doesn't, you have one.
