    Despite the cold weather this year my Balm of Gilead received in early April 2021 is growing very well. I potted it on to a larger pot and it’s tripled in size. I’ve had three super orders from Norfolk Herbs and they’ve all been well grown healthy plants with good root systems. Packaging is superb with excellent plant protection during transit.

    I’ve owned my Balm Of Gilead for 10yrs and it has survived every one of those winters in a pot outside. It always has new growth come spring. I have several cuttings going strong at the moment and they will stay outside this winter.
