Selecting and Buying

Buying: Yes… Mexican Oregano can be purchased at After weeks of searching for a source to buy this elusive herb to plant in my garden, I was rewarded by finding Peter Borchard & company at Companionplants. These folks put the Pro in professional with their emphasis on good old fashioned service to the customer, a quality so often lost in ecommerce today.

My emails and phone calls were answered immediately and my questions were fully resolved with courtesy and humor before I placed my order. When my plants arrived 48 hours later, they were packed with care and were healthier and more robust than those in my local nurseries.

In addition, there is no minimum purchase and the plants are guaranteed to arrive safe and well… a point well taken after a comparison to their competitors.

So yes… it’s true. I am recommending them to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Eat well and be well,
