Hi, just to warn people thinking of buying some of these that they need to be very cafeful as alot of the stock on sale have already dried out.I picked up 8 trees on the first day they went on sale but at least 50% of those on sale had already died.I contacted one store and they said they would have to do a product recall,but none was done.Still on sale and still dead!!
