With its lemony flavour, Lemon Basil was made to love pineapple. Just take some slices of pineapple, bake them shortly with some butter, serve with vanilla ice cream and become addicted, just like us.

Guaranteed

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.

Natural

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.

Questions /Answers

    • My Basil is growing like a weed and is overshadowing its neighbour plants!

      Among gardeners, Basil is known for its rapid growth. This might put its neighbours in a bit of shadow, so don't hesitate to cut your plant regularly in order to avoid your other plants from growing. Another tip is to just only fill the pot half, this way your Basil will be lower.

    • My Basil is dying!

      Did you cut your plant correctly? Basil hates it when you only pick some leaves, leaving it bare naked. Brr. Please take a look at the video in the growth diary. Otherwise, it's normal that your Basil will die at some point, it's an annual plant.

    • There are some strange black spots on my Basil, should I be worried?

      Take a good look at the black spots. Do they move? Then it's probably little insects, you can wash them off with a bit of black soap. They don't move? Then it's very likely that you have burnt the leaves of your Basil, the light might be too close to your plant.
