Default Agri-Starts - recent experience

I searched the posts and didn't find any with recent experience with Agri-starts. I am planning to order several flats from them and I would like any input on first hand experience with them. Do they do what they say they will do? How vigorous are their plants. Are their plants labeled correctly? Does it grow up to be what it is supposed to be?

Ante, you know better than that. There are no taxes as long as you don't declare what you transport as a living tissue.

Yeah, they do and like to kick us in the arse. Also in Netherlands, but they are pretty non responsive in electronical form...

That would be a great idea and a great service for the European members. But again, lots of studying, lots of patience, lots of money.
And we are back where started...

I was wrong. I wrote them and there is a one flat minimum. Yet that's still 72 bananas to much for me.
