3.0 out of 5 stars chili pepper growing kit, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hot Chilli & Sweet Pepper Kit by Plant Theatre - 6 Different Varieties to Grow (Garden & Outdoors)
I purchased this product for my brother for his birthday. He is a keen cook and enjoys spicy food. After spending much time browsing and looking for just the right gift i came upon this little growing kit. The price was fairly steep so i assumed that there would be something more than just a very small box with very little inside. This item is way overpriced for what i received and i cannot see how it was priced so steeply. Bad buy for the money

Its a seed kit, how big did you think seeds were? I assume there were growing instructions included? I think the value to be in the end product knowing that you shall always have freash chillies to hand when you fancy something spicy and not having to throw a nearly full packet of chillies in the bin because they went off before you got around to using the rest.

I paid £13.99! I dont believe i mention anywhere in my review that i expected giant seeds Ferguslea. As a customer i am entitled to comment and give my opinion on the product purchased. You will see that 2 out of 3 people found my review helpful. The product itself is fine, the price you were selling it for was not. Seeds are not expensive, neither are the little pots you grow them in. Your description of the item made it sound as though you were getting a whole lot more for your money than what was actually in the box. This item was purchased over 3 months ago and you are only now getting round to looking at your customer comments.

Ok, I think we have our wires crossed here, I live in Spain and am looking to start growing some exotic herbs, peppers, chillies and tomatoes. Having grown tomatoes in the uk I know the seeds are small and my point was why waste packaging when it isn't nessesary?

I read your review because despite my best efforts I have managed to kill at least half a dozen chillie plants already and was trying to find out if the growing / harvesting instructions were useful. I do not work for this company, nor do I know anyone who works for this company.

As to the value, well I prefer to ask, what is it worth to me? rather than how much does it cost to produce. I'm sorry if you found my comments terse, I am a fan of minimalist packaging thats all.
Best regards,
Brian.

wires crossed yes! apologies Brian, it came across sounding as if you were the seller! I hope you have a lovely time growing your seeds, I know my brother had much success growing his. This product was way too expensive for what was received, With the postage on top of the original purchase price this was an outrageous price, i just wanted to warn other buyers. Best Regards, Sam

and indeed, after a full night of research (I'm off work for the hols) I agree there is much better value to be had. Not only that but some of the specialist independent suppliers are happy to correspond with you by email to ensure you get a good result from their product, and boy do I need that. Have a great new year,

Brian.
