    Consistently excellent plants

    Posted by Jenny Ames on 3rd May 2023

    All the six plants I recently purchased arrived in excellent condition. They are now planted in their new homes in my herb garden or containers. They join other fantastic plants from Hook Green Herbs. A standout plant bought Autumn 2022 is my scented geranium 'Prince of Orange'. Thank you for growing these wonderful plants.
