2 out of the 4 I purchased survived. I planted them in a strawberry tower I made and the 2 survivors have really taken off. The other 2 probably died as I think I buried the crown too much in the opening of my tower. Still really happy with the ones that made it. Crushed egg shells and blood and bone were additions to my soil mix.
