Wonderfully aromatic plant!
We have had this growing for about a week after transplanting it and so far so good. Harvesting has already started and the taste is amazingly fresh. We used a light organic potting mix we got from Home Depot and the plant has not exhibited any signs of transplant shock at all. It receives daily watering and a check that the pot is draining well. It does seem to repel the mosquitos which is a big plus when we are working on the plants sitting on the planting table we built. So far, we are more than happy with this plant and again, the taste is amazing and will compliment the Bonnie Plants brand cherry tomato plant we also have growing from Home Depot.

Beautiful Plant.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When this first arrived the plant was dead. I decided to move the plant to another pot with water and kept my eye on it. I noticed after about a week or two it started to bloom into a beautiful Basil Plant. I actually try some of it with my pasta noodles and I was blown away how great it tasted!

    Growing well
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The basil plant came in good condition and after a few days I replanted it in a larger container. It took hold quickly and has been doing pretty well. It did wilt a little during a hot spell but was able to recover easily after a few days of close monitoring. It’s been growing nicely and many new leaves are budding. I love having fresh basil handy and it’s nice to go pick your own leaves.

      High Quality
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This sweet basil plant is very good quality. It handles wind and hot weather very well. I use the basil from my plants multiple times a week because who doesn't love fresh basil?!? I am very happy with this basil plant and the flavor of the basil. It grows quickly so I never run out of basil!

          Beautiful Plants
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The basil plants I received arrived in perfect condition due to the packaging. The plants arrived in a sturdy box, and each plant was contained in its own plastic container, which kept the plants from being damaged during shipping. When the plants arrived I was really thrilled at just how healthy they were, no damage to leaves, and the soil was still very moist. The smell of the basil is just incredible, so fresh! I let the plants get a little conditioned to their outdoor surroundings, then transplanted them into my garden that gets partial shade. In just three weeks the plants have almost tripled in size! I have already had friends and family asking me when I got the basil from. I am looking forward to making a big batch of Pesto soon!

            Fresh and tasty
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fresh herbs make meals much better than dried herbs that have been in a container for months (years), and basil in particular makes a huge difference in making a flavor filled dish. I have two 4-inch plants combined with catnip so the whole "family " can appreciate freshness.

              Love basil!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m so excited for this week basil plant! I love basil and put it in most of my meals. I can’t wait til it grows nice and big. It came neatly packaged. I haven’t put it in my garden yet but plan to when it gets a little bigger. I nibbled on a piece and it’s really good!

                Arrives fresh
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very happy with my sweet basils. They arrived in great condition and ready to plant in my soil. I placed one for inside and one in my raised garden. Thriving, growing well and tastes great for my salad and pizzas!

                  Fragrant and Full!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this plant and it arrived fresh and well packed. Right out of the box, it was encased in its individual protective plastic packaging. Upon removal from its protective cocoon, the specimen was fresh and the soil was still moist. After a day from its arrival (via FedEx), I transplanted it to a larger pot with Miricalgro potting soil along with som Dr Earths organic fertilizer mix and watered it thoroughly. The plant did remarkably well from the stress from the replant and is doing quite well. Already pruned and used this delightful Baisl in Italian dishes.

                    No quality control
                    Bought tomatoes and sweet peppers from Bonnie Plants and they were excellent. Lately though they seemed to have loosened their standards and been making mistakes. Maybe due to the volume but still.

                      They arrived in great condition but died only a few days after planting outside. It might be my soil as it's pretty acidic. But it was disappointing :(

                          When I received it in the mail it was WAY too over-watered (and basil is a water-sensitive plant), was a really small (practically seedling) of 3-4 inches tall, and was already half dead with the few leaves looking slightly withered. Hoping I could save it, I planted it as soon as possible, got it the right amount of sun, and started keeping the soil moisture levels reasonable-- all to no avail. The next day it was looking okay, but the repairs I had made were almost instantly undone. It became a 1.5 inch tall brown and withered stalk with no leaves in less than four days. If possible, I want a refund or a replacement, and somebody needs to fix this problem at Home Depot! This product also came with insects.

                          They came in nice and healthy, although their lavendar box mates didn't quite make it alright. Kind of dry and sad, not sure if they've survived or not, find out in the spring I reckon

                                              Plants arrived quickly. Then quickly died even though directions were followed. I buy Bonnie Plants a lot without issue and can only assume it was something with them at this point in the year or because of shipping.
