Grow a fresh organic Basil plant on your kitchen windowsill with this beautiful, hydroponic herb kit made from a recycled green wine bottle.

Hydroponic herbs are grown without soil, so all the nutrients that the plant receives (other than oxygen and carbon dioxide) is in the concentrated growth solution included with the kit. The solution is certified organic and has been specifically designed to be compatible with relatively hard water. However, if you live in an extremely hard water area, for best results it might be a good idea to use filtered water or rainwater as an alternative.

By following the step by step instructions and placing the kit on a bright windowsill, fresh herbs can be enjoyed all year round without the need for messy soil and constant tending.

The kit contains:-

Herb seeds (in plastic sachet for maximum freshness)
2 x capillary matting wicks
2 x dehydrated jiffy blocks
Enough certified organic hydroponic solution for around 2 years of growth
Enough clay pebbles for more than one grow
Re-purposed green wine bottle saved from landfill which has been professionally cleaned and cut
Cork coaster to protect surfaces
Instruction booklet

Produced in the UK from materials that are either recycled, can be recycled, or are biodegradable.

Kit measures approximately 20cm high x 7cm diameter.

The recycled green glass wine bottle used in this kit has been professionally cleaned and cut by hand and upcycled into a stylish herb plant container.


SUSTAINABLE

Hydro-Herbs source all parts of this kit carefully to ensure that they have as small a carbon footprint as they can. The majority of the parts in the kit are either recycled and recyclable, or entirely biodegradable.

The capillary matting is recycled and the solution dropper bottles are also made from recycled plastic that can again be recycled. The jiffy blocks are made of coir (ground coconut husk) rather than peat, so there is no contribution to the reduction of peat bogs. The cork lid/placemat comes from renewable sources in Europe as does the natural rubber band. The clay pebbles, the cork lid and natural rubber band are all biodegradable.
