great value October 3, 2016
Reviewer: Daniel Briere from north scituate, RI United States  
Hard to find this plant in cultivation, not rare but still difficult. Arrived in excellent condition, potted it up with more organic compost and soil and the mound is mounding!! Very satisfied!

Only one September 20, 2016
Reviewer: Debi Alexander from Palo Cedro, CA United States  
I almost feel bad leaving this review because I have purchased 15 or so medicinal herbs and most all of them are growing and thriving, except the arnica. I don't know why because I can grow just about everything. I planted it right away and it stayed green for a couple months, but never grew and all of a sudden it turned yellow and died. Although I don't have experience growing arnica it states its easy to grow. I'm disappointed because out of most my herbs this is the one I could have really used. Going to give it another try and keep my fingers crossed! Nothing against Grower's Exchange...all my other herbs are doing great.
