    A gorgeous plant – arrived happy, healthy and undamaged, and is exactly as described 🙂

    I ordered the 1.5 litre size, very pleased with the size of this plant, perfect for my small pot garden and large enough to pinch a few leaves to test! Wonderful fragrance, a very high quality plant. It arrived in perfect condition, delivery was faster than expected and well packed so the plant wasn’t damaged. Would highly recommend!
