Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

Plant arrived healthy and in good condition. It was well packed and protected. However I was surprised to find it pot bound. Thankfully, having prised the roots apart and potted it on it is growing away well.
I love this one. Arrived well packed and looked healthy. One week on and it is really going well. Will be planting this one in my herb bed as I don’t have this type of flower in there at the moment. Can’t wait to see it in bloom attracting bees and my favourites, butterflies. Thank you Hooksgreen.
Lovely little herb - this is a good size and very robust specimen, really pretty amongst other plants
