A bit more about the kits:
Glass wine bottles, from locally sourced outlets, are recycled helping to reduce material and energy waste, with the capillary matting and plastic bottles additionally being made from recycled materials.
The kits' ‘Jiffy pellets’ use coir (ground coconut husk) rather than peat, and the cork lid comes from renewable sources in Europe. Both these and the terracotta pebbles are all biodegradable.
Echoing the desire to give you peace of mind in what you are eating hydro-herb’s hydroponic solution is produced in the UK and is a certified organic hydroponic fluid. As well as this certification the solution has never been tested on animals making it suitable for vegans.
All hydro-herb kit components are reusable, and are supplied with enough seeds for two growths (just in case your herbs pass way perhaps due to being loved a little less than is ideal or just the vagaries of fate). Spare parts are supplied with each kit and the solution is envisaged to last around two years.
All hydro-herb kits are made by hand, from cutting and grinding the bottles, to the cutting strips of recycled capillary matting, the filling of solution bottles and the seed bags.
