In the begining

I have decided that I wanted to grow my own coffee at home. I did a bit of research and found that coffee can indeed be grown in Melbourne but required either a green house or to be grown inside.
I decided I wanted 8 plants so I hit eBay and started looking. I found one nursery in QLD that sold young saplings and I found another that sold seeds. 
I purchased 3 saplings and 2 bags of seeds(10) as I had read that germination rates could be as low as 10%. 
One week later and I received everything in the mail. 
Instead of 3 saplings I received four. I received more seeds as well. There were over 20 per bag. 
I decided to plant them all. 
Here. Are the seedlings as of the end of September 2013.
