@beckers1974 I hope they are too! I've heard a few stories of people been sent weeds 🙈 I'm sure they will be fine though mine came with no instructions but I grew the most fabulous baskets with them xx

I got 25 peony tree seeds a few years ago for 99p. Only 4 germinated. Lost one seedling that year and another last year but 5 years on, I have two healthy young trees! At 40p I won't be too disappointed if I only get a few, so long as they are what they say they are. A woman in the Uk sold me rushes seed when I'd ordered pampas. That irked me as I had to wait an eternity to find out and it was hell to dig up! Still finding little ones growing all over the place! xx

@Keely I've seen some horror stories of people buying from China a lot have been weeds or completely nothing like they are meant to be! Thank goodness mine are ok lol 🙈

You can get seeds on eBay for as little as a few pence from China with free postage - lost restrict you to one auction per month though. Well done!
