    "Pretty much as I expected them to be and they work but perhaps not as sturdy as I had hoped. However we'll put them to the test in a month or two when the potatoes are ready!"

    "Quite tricky to put together - needs a bit of wrestling with! The tension wires were hard to fit and needed to be bent with pliers. The instructions could definitely be improved by a bigger font and diagrams, as they were hard to read, especially for an older person. Haven't grown the potatoes yet, but am hoping that it works!"
