    I got some from lidl end of last year, they where about 30cm tall, I'll find out in the summer if they are any good but they looked healthy, and for that price I'm going to give the aldi ones a go too

    They should just be showing signs of new bud growth so long as they have been looked after. They may well be fine- just very young . Also check their soil is damp! If they are dry and no new buds appearing , I would give them a miss. Wish you luck with them!
