Comments about UncommonGoods Tree To Be Kit:

After trying to grow the seeds two different times, we followed the directions exactly as they stated and we got nothing to grow. We were very disappointed as we wanted to grow a tulip tree at our house to go with our relationship.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Tree To Be Kit:

      I gave this as a gift to my sister and my best friends. They both tried to grow it exactly according to the package description. Neither set of seeds grew. It has been over 6 months now. I am really disappointed, because I was really excited about this gift. It was going to be a great symbol of the beginning of their new homes. I have enjoyed every other product I've bought from this website, and this one was a complete fail. I do not suggest you buy this.

            I purchased this for a house warming gift. The party hasn't happened yet, so am not sure of the reaction of the recipient. Too bad they want a review on this product so fast after receiving the item.

            It was delivered very fast and was packaged very nicely.
