    Weeds not growing, is Pre Alpin ok?

    Sammy please send me a private message. Im also in Hong Kong. I know this post is little old but I only now found it whilst doing a "google". I would like to order preAlpin its the best food there is so if there are enough of us wanting it it would be worth while getting a load shipped.
