Disappointing so far

The plants were despatched later than we expected and so were about a week's growth behind what we wanted. They were packed so that they could move about too much within the box and consequently were rather bashed about. Five plants had the main stems broken so were unusable. The rest were of mixed quality and size. We potted them all up anyway as instructed. Most have now been planted out but some are still in pots until they, and the weather, improve, to give them a better chance of thriving. I am not convinced they will all produce a crop.

Disappointed

Of the 10 plants only 7 were reasonably substantial and have started growing. The other free were weak and have essentially died. I followed the growing instructions to the letter and the weather had been reasonable in the last couple of weeks. Not what I expected from DT Brown.

Variable quality

Most plants were healthy when they arrived but 7 out of 20 of them have since died. The others are growing well.
