The plants eventually arrived safely after spending an extra 2 days at the local PO, there had been an issue with the Au Post tracker. I was surprised that the plants had fared so well as it was an extremely hot period of weather. I have shifted them into bigger pots and all are showing good new growth. I thought I would keep them in the pots until they grow more and become a little more hardier before planting them out after the winter period this year. I have grown them from seeds last year (100% germination) only to lose them after an early unusually cold few days of weather before I realized what was occurring. These are looking good.
