I planted these seeds in a space between the house and a side fence, the idea being that if they could grow to a decent height (i.e. the top of the fence), they would get good sun (the ground itself only gets 4-5 hours of sun/day in the winter). It is May in Northern New South Wales and the seeds were planted in a low-cost compost, with a little organic fertiliser (chicken manure plus seaweed) added after germination. The first seedlings germinated after about 9 days and about 80% of seeds have germinated by two weeks and seem to be growing according to plan, which I take as a good result in this type of situation.
The seeds were delivered in good time and price included delivery, which is not common. The Climbing Fig was also not pretending to have seeds they didn't have, which I experienced with other businesses when looking for these seeds.
