            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!
