    The broad leaves of sweet basil give off an herbal fragrance combining cloves and nutmeg. Chopped over raw vegetables, pasta or in pesto, it is also divine in desserts.

    Basil is rich in antioxidants and micronutrients. It also helps to combat certain gastric disorders and stress.

    How do you cook sweet basil?

    Basil can be eaten fresh, frozen or dried. The fresh leaves can be crushed in a mortar and pestle before being added to sauces or stir-fried vegetables, or used whole in salads or on pizza. 

    It is best not to cook it, as it loses flavour during cooking.

    How do I harvest sweet basil?

    Our tips for successfully growing your sweet basil

    Sweet basil grows faster above 22°C. Wait until there are 2 layers of leaves before harvesting for the first time (around 15 to 20 cm high). Cut the stem 1 cm above a node.

    It will grow back into two stems. This will give you a fuller plant. Harvest the tallest leaves first and those that shade the other Lingots. Never cut off the leaves and leave the stem, as this will weaken the plant.

    Questions ? 

    Feel free to consult our FAQ for more information! 

    Lingots® are patented 100% biodegradable and compostable refills.

    They are guaranteed GMO-free and pesticide-free.

    The Lingot® contains:

    - a natural soiless media adapted to hydroponics

    - pre-sown organic seeds

    - essential nutrients

    The substrate is made of coconut fibers (peatless). This plant-based material is a renewable resources. The honeycombed texture of Lingot® enables optimal rooting and oxygenation, which guarantees a fast and healthy growth of your plants.

    The majority of the seeds we use are certified organic, some are untreated (to know which one, look at the description of each Lingot®).

    The nutrients integrated in the substrate are made of minerals and elements essential for growth and assimilated directly by plants. They are dosed precisely so that the plant uses them entirely during its life cycle.

    Thanks to the Véritable® garden technology, plants grow 2 to 3 times faster than in a garden. Some plants can be harvested from 3 weeks.

    The speed of growth depends on the species and the temperature of your room.

    For germination and growth time, refer to the Lingot® packaging, or visit the Lingot® page on our online shop.

    Once planted, a Lingot® enables you to harvest your herbs generously for 4 to 6 months. Indeed, after each harvest your plant grows back!

    The duration of a Lingot® depends on each species and how you harvest.

    To know the life cycle of each Lingot® refer to the packaging of the Lingot®, or visit the Lingot® page on our online shop.

    After 4 to 6 months, depending on its condition, you can compost your plant, or transplant outdoors.

    In spite of the performances of our apparatuses and the care which we bring to the manufacture of Lingots®, it can arrive that certain seeds do not develop correctly because they are living products. It should be known that the natural rate of germination of seeds varies between 65 and 95%. It is thus impossible for us to guarantee you a germination at 100%. However, we voluntarily planted more seeds than it is necessary in each Lingot® in order to obtain a good proportion of plants which arrive at maturity.

    To ensure you a maximum satisfaction, we offer a guarantee "satisfied or exchanged" on all our Lingots®. To know more about it, contact our Customer Service and consult our General Terms and Conditions.
