I liked that the planter was clear and you could easily see the plant growing and mark it. I also liked that it came with multiple peas in case you needed to restart. I would suggest that you include in the booklet how long it will take for the pea to open (ex: approximately a week) that way you know that your plant still has hope of sprouting.
It is very good and the seeds are very healthy. Enjoyed putting it together
My 6 and 4 yo had so much fun watering their snap peas daily and observing it over the two or three weeks. We even got it to bloom and produce one pea pod!
