Hydro Herb Mint
Hydro Herb Mint
Actually belonging to the same family of plants as basil, mint has a very different taste all of its own with a punchy flavour profile more resilient to heat than basil's. Ever popular, especially with boiled potatoes mint finds its way into a great many recipes and is a herb that all kitchens should have a ready supply of.
Our Hydro-herb Kit helps to ensure that you will always have a supply of fresh mint for all of your culinary means. Growing hydroponically means there's no mess and as the growth fluid is clearly visible in the lower part of the bottle it's very hard to run out without you noticing. There is enough fluid in the pack for at least a years growth and you can always buy some more to keep your garden growing once you've got the hydro' bug.
Each kit contains all the parts you need to grow your chosen herb from seed, just follow the instructions and within 7 to 10 days you'll notice the seeds begin to germinate. Remember these plants need light to grow, more light equals more rapid growth ( you could also try giving them a few extra drops of nutrient solution to really give them some 'pep'. although the diffferent plants grow at different rates within 7- 8 weeks given enough light you should find they are ready for you to pick some leaves off and use them in your cooking. Continue like this and the plants should give you months of steady growth. There is enough solution to last you around two years.
Hydro-herb kits are as environmentally sound as we can make them. We source our parts carefully trying to ensure that we have as small a carbon footprint as we can. All of the parts in our kit are either recycled and recyclable or entirely biodegradable.
