Arrived despite ripped wrapper - the large loose fold on the wrapping of my copy seems designed to get caught in mail handling machinery. Before the rip it looks like there was a 4cm overlap

Yes, a large loose fold. Very easy to open though!

Did anyone else get the cultivation sheet inserts? Or maybe it was a subtle hint about my growing skills?

Mine arrived here today. Sure is fast (assuming it will be delivered today in Great Brittain too)...!

Still waiting for the MSG Bulletin, though.

Looks great! And is the new wrapper biodegradable? I hope so 👍
