Love our new Dittany of Crete plant!

Shipping to our home in Florida was fast and the Oregano-Dittany of Crete Herb Plant arrived in great condition. We transplanted it into a new pot and it is doing great! Thank you for the quick service! Hope to do business with you again.

Oregano-Dittany of Crete

Ordered it a year ago. It arrived healthy and grew nicely during the summer producing beautiful flowers. Unfortunately it did not survive a very harsh winter we had in the NorthEast. Perhaps I should have planted it in a pot and took it inside for the winter...
