    Was elated when I managed to find Kencur online at Mudbrick Herb Cottage after such a long time looking for it. Placed the order immediately & received it by post a few days later without any hassle or problem at all. Followed the planting instructions & the Kencur is now growing well in the pot. Will definitely order herbs from Mudbrick Herb Cottage without hesitation.

    Kencur plant

    Ordered this plant on 18th January and plant was deliveredwithin a week via Australia post. Packaging was great and plant was in a good state. Sandra gave very good advice on what condition the plant would arrive in and how to take care of it. I followed her instructions and advice and am thrilled that it is growing well. I look forward to buying other herbs from Mudbrick Herb Cottage and recommend others to support this small business. Thank you Sandra.
