When life gives you lemons...
This cousin of the classic Green Basil goes well with fruits, fish, in a salad...
What a surprise, Lemon Basil! We warn you, once you've tried it in your indoor garden, you will want to try it with everything that you can get your hands on (but first things first, at least make sure to try it with pineapple).
"To harvest it, cut the main stem after the 2nd node. The flowers of your Basil can make your plant taste bitter. Prune them once they appear." — Our mate the gardener
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.
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.

includes all the ingredients needed to ensure the best growth possible for your plants: water, light, and nutrients. If your pod happens to be a little mischievous (which can happen, as with every other living product), we'll send you another pod! You can check out our FAQ for more information.

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.
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.
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.
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.
