Tasty Basil

Wonderful healthy plant. Using within three weeks!

From James | August 22, 2023

The Only Basil

This is the only basil I will ever buy. Besides thriving wherever it goes, even with neglect, it NEVER bolts. Lasts through the 90’s in July well into September. It’s beautiful, grows compact and upright, and you get loads of basil all season long. Have never seen another basil like it and will only ever buy this!

Nice olants

I was little sceptical ordering here but I have to say the plants came in the Best packaging I have ever seen. Each plant was well contained and made it here undamaged. I will definitely buy from here again.

Greek Columnar Basil

Very happy with condition and shipping of our plants. Packing containers are the best of any online nursery I have experienced. This type of basil cannot be grown by seed, cutting only, and can be difficult to find. 4th Happy year of ordering.

From Thomas | May 25, 2022

Very happy!

This basil arrived healthy & packed well just like all the other plants I received. I planted it & it's doing great. I'm very happy with GroyJoy!

Wonderful Basil

Plants were healthy and grew well and rather quickly. The scent flavor was excellent. Plants grew to be almost three feet tall and bushier than expected.

UPDATED 12/2/22:
I already have a review below but that was just after the first summer with this wonderful basil. The plant is over a year and half old and still growing with no blooms in sight. The flavor is fresh with a bit of spice to it. We use it with pork, fish, chicken, beans and soups.

Healthy Basil plant

I received a healthy starter basil plant and look forward to it growing into a tall plant the rest of this summer and in the winter under lights in my basement.

Great Plants

The plants were beautiful and well packaged for shipping. Customer service department was wonderful.

From anonymous | April 27, 2019

Wonderful service!

I purchased 2 Greek Columnar Basil plants after reading dozens of raving reviews---they were understatements to say the least! My plants arrived SO happily nestled in their little beds. I have saved the packaging because it is so unique! Every time I have had occasion to contact them, I always get immediate replies. I will definitely be going back often for their beautiful plants! I've been a serious gardener for about 50 years, and nor in my 85th year it is my therapy!

Wonderful service!

great plants!

Columnar Basil

I was impressed with the plants and the packaging. The plants had good roots, color and size. The packing had been done with care and would have survived had no one been here to receive them.

Basil-Greek Columnar Herb

Fantastic packing!  My 8 plants came in perfect condition.I'm only sorry I didn't order more for gifts, as you are now out of my favorite Basil.

Columnar Basil

This was our first time - EVER - receiving live plants by mail. We were amazed at their condition when they arrived - probably in better shape than if we had purchased locally. Thank you !

From Meg | April 16, 2016

Greek Columnar Basil

I could not find these locally so tried on-line. Plants were shipped in wonderful plastic containers, plenty moist, and inside a packing box with plenty of packing material. Arrived quickly and in perfect condition. All have transplanted superbly. Would not hesitate to order plants again.

From Kathy | May 23, 2015

Great Basil Greek Columnar

Very nice plant, well packaged, fast service, would recommend seller.

From Karen | June 16, 2014

Awesome Basil

Ive grown Greek Columnar for the last couple of years and its become my favorite. Always grows well in strong full sun (NJ) and maintains scent and flavor. Great for making pesto at the end of the season with the leftovers.

From Grant | May 22, 2014
