Mouldy horrible plant
I always buy supermarket herbs and decided to add another basil plant to my collection. I pride myself on growing great plants from these pots and have never had one as bad as this. The plant developed a horrible mildew, the stems turned brown and the leaves shrivelled and dropped off nearly as soon as I got it home. I am so disappointed! Having not treated this plant differently than any other I am convinced that there was a problem with the plant to start with. Waste of time and money,
Recommend buying in warmer months
The quality of these plants isn’t great. The leafs wilt very quickly and are unusable within days. These plants are better in the warmer months.
Bought this through click and collect . Received a half dead plant . Not very happy . I can’t get to the store today to get a refund and need it for tonight’s meal. No option to get a refund on line either as far as I can see .
Shockingly poor condition. Wizened, drooping, beyond reviving with water. The staff clearly took no notice of the condition of the plant before adding it to my click& collect. The past 2 deliveries of parsley in a pot have been almost as bad. I thought that some how the pot basil would be better. Stupid me.
Keep going back and buying this especially during the cold times but really not worth the money, never last and arrives in poor condition
Very sad specimen.
The poor basil I received was almost dead. I know it is difficult to maintain due to the delicacy of the leaves but I only managed to salvage 3 leaves from my specimen.
The plant was already half dead when I got it hom
The plant was already half dead when I got it home. Very disappointed.
Very little for your money
Once the protective plastic wrapper was removed I saw that there were very few stems in the pot and the longer ones flopped over. Some leaves shrivelled. Not up to the usual standard and poor value for money.
Really healthy plant, with a nice flavour.
Really healthy plant, it's good to have fresh herbs in such good condition in January.
Wilted & shrivelled to nothing overnight.
Arrived looking sorry for itself, wilted & shrivelled by the morning. Usually these are pretty good but this was a waste of money.
