Arrived safe and well - A herb I have found difficult to source and so beneficial to the garden. Needed to replace some lost plants, Lovely
During the pandemic whilst all the garden centres were closed, I had to order plants online from various retailers. Nearly all them were close to dead when received. These plants were amazingly healthy and packed really well. I bought Summer Savoury to combat blackfly but would also like to try it in cooking. Couldn't be happier with this order!
Thank you. We received the Summer Savory in perfect condition. The 2 plants are now living happily with this years broad beans.
Top quality fragrant plants bought to plant alongside broad beans to deter black fly.
Love this herb with beans, so great to find it on the site. Everything came well packed and looking vibrant.
