Recipes for anise hyssop

Chef's specials

The vegetal and aniseed aroma of Anise Hyssop goes very well with white fish: just sprinkle some on your dish. Another option is to boil the leaves of your plant in a mixture with sugar and water - your Anise Hyssop will make a very nice syrop in summer. 


It will grow!


Your indoor garden supplies all ingredients for a beautiful harvest: water, light and nutrients. In the case of a pod that doesn't sprout (which can happen as we work with natural materials), we will send you a new pod free of charge. Take a look at our FAQ.


Our seeds are organic

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

The seeds come from special selected seed companies in France. The aromatic seeds are organic and grow in peat and coconut fiber. Our pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

Système hydroponique

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Thanks to our patented Float® design, you only have one thing to do: add water once every two or three weeks when the floater sinks. The plant takes all mineral salts it needs out of the water (these are released into the water over the weeks). Discover the Prêt à Pousser technology.
