I got these on sale for about $5 each so I ordered 4 of them and let me tell you, they are awesome! My 4 year old daughter helped me pour the water on them and poke holes in each "pod" with her fingers. All that was left to do after that was add seeds and lightly pinch the tops together to cover the seeds with the peat. I had Xenia and Wallflower seedlings sprouting up out of them within 4 days. Great purchase and worth every penny of the usual $16 price because it will save you so much money in long run compared to buying plants that are already grown.
