Sadly the delivery system doesn't work for me - the seedlings all ended up sitting for a couple of days before I could unbox them, most went mouldy and none survived. No judgement on the quality and I understand the benefit of the system that sends when the plants are ready but it doesn't work for someone who travels regularly. If there was a way to pick delivery windows that would be great, otherwise will have to go back to garden centres.

They have barely grown at all . For this reason I have not been able to use them .
