    French tarragon excellent service.

    I became interested in this herb only to find it doesn’t grow from seed. A search led me to mud cottage. I left my email to be contacted when they became available as they were being cultivated. I was a few months later pleasantly surprised to get an email to say they were ready for sale. I ordered and received regular emails with links to videos of how to care for the tube stock on arrival and how the plants would arrive packed. On arrival the plants were in good condition the soil in the tube was still moist to touch despite the journey from QLD to SA taking a few days. Excellent service .

    Great service, love my plant

    I haven’t bought plants online before and I was surprised how well my French Tarragon survived the journey. A week or two after arriving in the mail the plant is thriving. Very grateful for the various instructional videos available. Thanks for the prompt and attentive service.
