Ok, so the replacement Fushia Royal collection turned up (T13369549) on friday, I potted straight away into a decent potting compost and watered (looked a touch dry) paid £15 including delivery
I`ve got to say I`m really disappointed :(
10 "postiplugs" about 1" high, 4 out of the 10 already have died, leaves dropped off and left with a withering ever growing brown middle.
a few days earlier Petunia Amore Queen of Hearts arrived (T13375308) 1 had shriveled in the post, potted on the rest after watering etc.
again 10 "postiplugs" about 1" high. Very sorry looking plugs.
being brutally honest, I wont be purchasing posti plugs ever again, they just arent value for money considering loss and the incredibly small size of them v`s what I can get from a GC using the Kindergarden plugs (at least 4-5 times the size) for £1 each.
I will continue to get my seed from T&M as the range is brilliant and great value but seriously let down over this.
Using the order ref above you can see I`m still buying seeds (where and when I`m going to grow I`ve no idea as already out of room lol)

Beautiful day up here
first some trellis from poundland, £1 a piece !!
Then made a new bed for the mini greenhouse
then with the help of a friend built new mini greenhouse and table (6hrs !!! And my backs in pieces lol)
Ended up putting it in a sunnier position
Very productive day
