Barely One inch high plants at most.
Maybe my plants were an exception because the green basil I received from Bonnie was decent although still small. The purple are so so small! I would not chance the purchase again.

      All of the plants died right away. I probably will not order this product again. I did find the ruffled purple basil at another Home Depot and those plants are doing well.

        I bought 6 plants total and they all died after repotting, even after following the instructions. Just to compare, I also bought thyme and regular basil plants and they are doing great.
