Enthusiastic!

These came up in less than a week in seed trays, compared to the Alaska mix that took a couple weeks to poke their heads up. They are just keen as anything, 100% germinated for me.

Germinates so easy and quick. Plants look after themselves. Mine were damaged by my dogs at seedling stage but they bounced back and look great now.
