Enthusiastic!31 May 2019These 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.

fool proof plantBy: customer review from 16/01/2015 on 21 March 2016Germinates 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.
