    I would like to plant a small herb garden. Id like some hardy plants that survive well without too much attention and care! Not sure if these are suitable but was thinking mint, rosemary, parsley. Id like a few more too but not sure what else might be good. Do you have some plants thatd suit and would you deliver to just outside dingle town? Thanks!
