    Received roots quickly, they were viable and had green shoots on some of them. They are in pots for now and are doing well! I highly recommend this company.

    I ordered goldenseal to help with my asthma. The roots came well packaged, fast shipping and great product tracking. I planted them indoors to get a jumpstart on germination. I am excited to watch them grow.
