I ordered some unusual mints from this company. I was a bit put off by the shipping costs initially. However, I really wanted these plants, so bit the bullet. Once the package arrived I understood shipping charges more thoroughly. The plants were big, in 4 inch pots and the box was quite heavy. Some of the leaves were yellow, but no more than can be expected from being in transit. I will not hesitate to buy from this company again. I am indeed a satisfied customer!

I placed an order with these folks about a month ago. All of the plants were very well packed, clearly labeled and arrived healthy. The description of their black stem peppermint plants on their website is what prompted me to try them. My plant had an exceptionally nice scent and their description of it was certainly accurate. All of my plants are growing vigorously in my garden. I am very pleased with my entire order and will certainly be ordering from them again.

Plants were much bigger than I expected, and arrived in perfect condition (granted, I'm just a couple of hours upstate). The packing job was great. Yeah, shipping was a little on the expensive side, but it was worth every penny for the plants to arrive completely undamaged and in perfect condition. I found the shopping experience to be very analogous to ordering from Annie's Annuals: pricey once you've figured in shipping, but worth it.

Very positive experience ordering alpine strawberries from this company through Ebay. The strawberries were very carefully packaged beautiful plants.

Super fast shipping. The plants I got were better than the ones pictured on the website! I ordered a black butterfly bush from them and it was three times the size of the one I got from Michigan Bulb Co. Will do biz again! Love the huge variety of mints!

Even this late in the season (October), when mint is usually leggy and tired, I received very vigorous, well-rooted plants with healthy foliage, and most were far fresher and "younger" looking than I could believe for fall plants. All looked well-hardened and ready to go straight into the garden, not like over-pampered greenhouse plants. What a great selection of hard-to-find mints!

Sent better plants than I ordered - I had ordered a 6 pack of Black & Blue salvia & they sent very nice 3"potted plants about 6" tall instead due to the fact that the cell packs I had ordered got fertilizer burn over the weekend & she said the didn't look to hot so they substituted w/ the 3" at no extra charge to make sure my order arrived promptly as promised. I have nothing but nice things to say about this company - promptly answered all e-mails,packaged plants well & shipped fast & nice healthly plants ready for the garden - couldn't ask for more to make me happy w/them & confident to do business w/again in the future.

I've ordered plants from Fragrant Fields twice now, and both times I received well packed, extremely healthy looking plants that did very, very well after I planted them in my garden. I have ordered plants from on-line catalogs fairly often, and the plants I've gotten from Fragrant Fields were the best, healthiest plants I've ever had delivered. I love their selection of herbs.

Fragrant Fields opened in the mid 70's selling cooking herbs to Chicago area restaurants. They stock kitchen garden annuals and perennials such as French (not Russian) tarragon as well as variegated, golden and purple sages that can prove difficult to source. They also stock the elusive Patchouli, and guarantee their plants 100%.

Ordered 1 chocolate mint, 1 Kentucky Col. mint, and 1 French tarragon on 7/5/06. Prices are very reasonable, website is nice, shipping what you expect for living plant, not outrageous, fair. Plants arrived today, well-packed, received shipping notice ahead of time. Only comment is that the chocolate mint is a bit leggy, but it is late in the season for it. So it got a haircut already. All three are in the herb garden. Looking forward to those mint juleps.
