"Hard to find Herb Plant"

Comment: Over the past several yrs have changed the primary thrust of my gardening from flowers to herbs. Especially love to grow unusual, hard to find herbs. Only once, a few years ago, have I found Lime Basil locally. Gave up hunting & ordered a few plants GrowJoy. They came beautifully packed and in perfect condition, happily taking root. When planting, I dig a hole, fill it with water, a dab of fertilizer, set plant & back fill. Have never lost a single one by this method.

Comment: That was my first thought when I smelled this plant. The kids all love to brush their hands through it and then run around sniffing their fingers. I can't wait to try it with some fish!

Comment: Yum! This herb is really pretty with small long delicate leaves and tastes wonderful as another green in salads. I planted it in a pot on my patio and will bring it inside to over-winter in Colorado.

Comment: This is the second year I have purchased herb plants from GrowJoy and it will not be my last. The packaging is meticulous (individual partitions for each plant). The plants were considerably healthier and larger than those I previously purchased online from a large Home Improvement Store. The plants are thriving in containers on my balcony.
