    I ordered on the Friday and received them on the Tuesday. Every one was in fantastic condition, packed so well I don't think the plants even knew they had been transported. Planted them in my big herb pots, the mints in one and the sages in the other and watered them in. Made sure they were watered for a couple of days and then we had rain. The plants look in great shape and even in 6 days have grown. Really healthy and I am so pleased. If I want any more herbs I will definitely be ordering from your company. Thank you very much.
