    Well grown, well packaged plants

    In these very difficult times, it is a delight to find a herb supplier who still has a few plants, they arrived extremely well packed and in really good condition, I will certainly buy again from you, when all this is over and your stocks return to normal. I am setting up a small herb garden, but want unusual among the basics.
