A few months ago I purchased a small tea plant off of eBay for a small price. It appeared to not be growing, so I pulled it up and the roots looked healthy! Ah, so I repotted it, hoping it will reroot okay. Minus the shock, it should recover.
Since I thought it failed, I ordered some tea seeds from Horizon Herbs, which produces fresh seeds of all kinds every year. It appears 2010 was a good season for them, so I have high hopes for germination rates! I just cracked 5 seeds open and are soaking them overnight. I will then proceed to plant them with my other tea plant, trying to keep warm.
