    It can have invigorating, soothing effects and fights certain gastric disorders, as well as stress. And it's also a source of vitamins, antioxidants, micronutrients and minerals.

    How do you cook lemon basil?

    Lemon basil is perfect for flavoring mayonnaises, sorbets, fish and poultry dishes. Add it fresh at the end of cooking to preserve its aroma.

    Add to stir-fried beef, chicken or vegetable woks, accompanied by cashews, peanuts and nuöc mám sauce. An easy and delicious harmony for an exotic Asian flavor in no time.

    Revisit the famous Laotian chicken stew Or Lam by introducing it instead of lemongrass. Divine! Also ideal in shrimp and fish dishes, whether melted or grilled.

    Lemon basil leaves can also be used to infuse water or tea, adding a subtle lemony flavor to your drinks.

    Our tips for successfully growing your lemon basil

    Lemon basil grows faster than other basil varieties. It grows in layers of two leaves. Wait until the plant has three layers before harvesting (approx. 15-20 cm high).

    From 4-5 weeks, or when the plant has 3 pairs of leaves, you can start harvesting. Cut off the main stem 1 cm above a node (no more!). It will grow back into two stems, giving you a fuller plant. Be sure to leave at least 2 pairs of leaves on the stem. It's important to prune and harvest your herbs regularly, before the leaves reach the light. You can then enjoy your basil every week for 4 to 6 months.

    Lemon basil flowers quickly. Cut the flowers as soon as they appear to preserve flavour and encourage leaf production.

    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.
