"African Blue Basil"

Comment: I ordered this plant after my sprinkler line froze. this past winter. My cuttings all died before we knew they were not being watered. These are great pollinator plants that were apparently in short supply this year so I was only able to get one. I would like to get more if it is possible. The one I received was big enough that I could get 3 extra starts from it but still need more.

Comment: I love African blue basil and like to grow it every year, but it’s hard to find in the nurseries so I was glad to find it here. The plants I received were big, healthy specimens packed with great skill and care. I’ll be ordering more this year.

"Fascinating and stunning!"

Comment: I love the neat and safe packaging. My two basil plants arrived in excellent health and condition. I transplanted then right away at night without disturbing their roots and being gentle as they had a long trip. It's been less than two months and their growth has left me stunned. Beautiful vigorous growth and a fantastic aroma with these tiny little pink/purple/white flowers that my bees can't get enough of.

Comment: My African Basil plants arrived in perfect condition. I was a little worried by the Houston heat, but there was no problem. My plants were in an excellent, creative packaging. They were in perfect upright health. Very Happy!
