Guaranteed

It will grow!

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 Cornflower is reaching for the sun, its leaves are already above the lamp. What do I do?

      Don't hesitate to pick your Cornflowers with their stems, this will make a nice bouquet and it will help the flowers to develop more easily.

    • Can I repot my Cornflower?

      No, your Cornflower is a perennial plant and will only live for several months.

    • Can I make Cornflower water with my flowers?

      Yes, of course, you have the right variety for this. Just avoid keeping it too long is you can't sterilize it. It would be better to just make a wee bit and use it immediately.
