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: I have grown several different types of Basil and this is a new one for me. A nice large plant arrived looking healthy. I will keep it indoors for the winter and/or take cuttings so I have it next year as well.

Comment: This is the second time I have ordered this herb from Grow Joy and each time I have gotten a strong healthy well packaged plant. It was far superior to one I bought from another source and less expensive as well. I have been equally pleased with other plants I have purchased from Grow Joy. . For selection, quality, price and service, I cannot recommend Griw Joy highly enough.

"Excellent service"
