Beautiful plants!

I’m very happy with these basil plants. As always, shipping was quick and the plants were securely packaged. The basil was large, healthy and had great root systems. I planted them in their new pots and they are doing great! The smell is incredible too. Highly recommend!!

Basil Mammoth Herbs

Your Herbs are perfect and you ship them in excellent containers. I have bought Herbs annually for many years, but yours is the best.

healthy plants, as always

GrowJoy's Basil always does well this is the 3rd year I've bought them. I used to sow seeds, but ended up with a gazillion Basils all over the place, some of which did well and others that did not. When I buy from GrowJoy, I'm guaranteed a strong healthy plant.

Wonderful herb plant!

I happily received a very healthy and beautifully packaged Mammoth Basil plant! I know it will be very productive and look forward to future purchases!! Thank you.

From Merry | May 07, 2014

Mammoth Basil smell!

If you love the smell of traditional Basil you will love this plant. Just brush up against it and waves of Basil odor come pouring out. I can't wait for the leaves to get big enough for us to do pizza wraps (a little cheese, a splash of marinara and some pepperoni...all wrapped up in a Mammoth Basil leaf) YUM!!!

From Dallas | April 26, 2014

Garden mom on Mammoth Basil

Healthy plant that smells so good. Tastes good too.

French Tarragon and Basil-Mammoth

I had to search a great many places to find French Tarragon. So when I ordered the plants I did not know whether it would be French or Russian Tarragon. I have received my plants in excellent shape and planted them immediately. Great service, great products, couldn't be happier.
