Chef's specials

Salad Burnet tastes great mixed with Greek yoghurt for a tzatziki. Crushed with a mortar and pestle and some lemon peel, it will also taste well when added to fresh water.

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Questions /Answers

    • The leaves of my Salad Burnet have no smell whatsoever, do I need to be worried?

      Yes, that's normal. The leaves of your Salad Burnet don't have a strong smell. Try to delicately rub them between your fingers, this will release the smell.

    • What can I do with Salad Burnet?

      Use your Salad Burnet fresh! You can't really keep it fresh long and cooked is not the best option, either. The best would be in a salad or other cold dish.

    • I'd like to repot my Salad Burnet, can I?

      Yes, you can repot it, but make sure she won't suffer from culture shock: repot your plant but leave it under the same conditions (enough water, good lighting and a nice temperature).
