These fab herb kits will brighten up your windowsill and give you organic herbs all year round. The soil-free hydroponic kits are made from re-purposed wine bottles, every element is entirely recycled, recyclable or bio-degradable.

 

This single kit is the Tarragon herb kit in which we use a variety of tarragon commonly known as ‘Mexican’ or less commonly ‘Spanish’ tarragon. The flavour profile of this type of tarragon is very nearly as strong as ‘French’ tarragon, so we would suggest you use just a little more than you would normally use in your cooking to obtain the same desired taste.

 

Mexican tarragon can reach heights of 40cm or so and will happily grow all year round indoors, with its characteristic yellow/golden flowers. When eaten it has an anise like flavour which lends a gorgeous aromatic tone to dishes especially soups and sauces. Interestingly it is also said to have insect repellent properties with the dried plant being burnt as a form of incense for exactly this purpose. 

 

The kit will last two years before it needs to be replaced.

 

You can buy these as single kits or select the Trio Pack option and choose your top three herbs.

 

BRAND:

Hydro-Herbs is a British brand offering a beautiful collection of hand crafted, upcycled herb kits that can be grown indoors without soil.

 

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.
