The ten plants looked small and weak but I planted them immediately in the greenhouse and am hoping four survive with TLC. I am surprised they are so fragile when I received them in mid June, a bit later than forecast. Sad to see the others wither within a day! I don't rate the quality and can't imagine getting more than half to grow to maturity...wasted money.

One plant was broken so there were only nine viable plants.
