The pesto's yet to come
You know what they say about little leaves... HUGE flavour!
The original name "Basil" comes from "basilicum" in Latin, which means "royal". Rumour has it that this plant was born to adorn the Queen's pizzas... Anyways, the rowdy Spicy Bush Basil beats cousin Basil in terms of fragrance #FamilyRivalry. Dare to tame this fiery bush and it's slightly spicy flavour, and your cooking will be of noble status.
"Enjoy trimming your Spicy Bush Basil is all kinds of shapes and sizes (heart or cloud-shaped, let your imagination run wild!)." — Our mate the gardener
Spicy Bush Basil is used raw, as a final touch of flavour added onto vegetables, meats, fish... You get it, any dish that would go well with a touch of sunshine (and a touch of love...). It can also be used in a sauce with lemon juice or olive oil and yep, you guessed it, it's time for Pesto & Chill!
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 all come from French seed sellers. More than half of our seeds are organic. The substrate in which they grow is made from coconut peat and coir. The Pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

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.
Spicy Bush Basil might take a longer time than it's neighbours to germinate (up to two weeks longer). Next to an early bloomer, you might be under the impression that something's gone wrong! If after two weeks you've still got nothing, send us a quick pic via the "Assistance" page on our app.
No worries, it's pretty common. Spicy bush basil takes some time to germinate, and the rich environment of the substrate is helping the development of algae or mold. Once your plant starts to sprout and grow, its strands will cut off the access to light of the algae, and they will disappear. If the situation seems out of control, do not hesitate to send us a photo in the "Assistance" section of the application.
