        A:  Mine arrived very healthy.  They’re very good about replacing them if they seem wilted/severely dehydrated.

          A:  Unfortunately, my experience has been that some plants are great, some are terrible. It all depends on where they come from and how they've been cared for. On the whole, I've gotten more bad plants than good ones. If it wasn't for COVID I wouldn't order plants like this online.

              This plant was just transferred to the ground however, it is not doing well. I don’t think it’ll survive but it’s worth a try the lemon thyme

              Delicious lemon thyme, does not like being transplanted.
              I love lemon thyme, but these plants did not withstand the transplanting process very well. They have browned on most of the stalks, but are still alive. I am hoping they come back.

                  The plants were packaged very well! I was impressed because I was worried they would show up mangled. The delivery guy placed one box upside down even though the box was clearly labeled to avoid that. But they were packaged so well inside, they were just fine. They are beautiful, healthy plants!

                  I ordered this along with another herb from the the same seller and they both came next day packaged very nicely. No damage to the plants and the packaging was done really well with air holes. I'm impressed with how quickly they came and how well they look.

                    Nice, full healthy plants. Planted a week ago; thriving! (At least until I kill it! Hopefully it can withstand my not always green thumb!) But looking great where I planted outdoors. Very pleased with this purchase.

                    It came full and vibrant. I transplanted it into a raised flower bed and it's thriving.
