I have a few of these from years ago of a different kind so I had to add these to my collection in 2010. I got these from the local Home Depot and so far I have little shoots coming up the first week of June. I have mine in cages I make from vinyl coated garden fencing to help the plants when the flowers arrive.. excited to see the flowers
