very satisfied with tarragon plant
Reviewed By: tom plavko (charleroi, PA)
Gurney, you are my favorite mail order seed and nursery company. My Tarragon came with healthy bright green foliage and healthy root system. You delivered it at the perfect time to soak and plant outside in my herb garden. Thank you very much.

Very dissapointed
Reviewed By: Lilly Nicholson (Dimmitt, Texas)
I ordered two tarragon plants, one came in good packing, the other has a bare root ball without much soil. The plants were tall, yellow, leggy and sickly looking. I expected more from Gurney. I am going to try to nurse them back to health but don't have much hope in them growing to be good plants. A expensive lesson learned.

Another Great Order from Gurney's
Reviewed By: Jan (Columbus, Mississippi)
It is so comforting to know when you order from Gurney's you get what you had hoped for. Taragon plant although a little longer in getting to me was in great shape. Took it out of the box and followed instructions. It is doing GREAT!

Cant Wait
Reviewed By: Jason Canen (Logan, Utah)
Well my tarragon came today and it looked great. I planted it right into the ground. Can't wait for it to get bigger so I can start to use it. The smell of it is amazing. Thanks again Gurneys.

Finelly here. In transit too long but hope will come out of it soon. Weather has cooled so they are under lights for now. Can't wait to get them growing.
