Hi all. just thought I would share.

I took the offer from T&M for free plants well paid for them and in three weeks they turned up at my home opened the large open sided envelope to find my plants inside and to my surprise the plants were nice and dark green and very healthy. very very small but really good roots on all the plants. I took some pic for you to see.
