    How do you cook dwarf basil?

    Green fine basil has a mild, subtle flavor, less intense than other basil varieties, making it versatile in the kitchen.

    Fine green basil is ideal for salads, sauces, soups, pasta dishes, pizzas, tomato dishes and meat dishes. It goes well with ingredients such as pine nuts, Parmesan, garlic and olive oil. Add it fresh at the end of cooking to preserve its aroma. 

    Of course, we love it in pesto. For a more original pleasure, add it to your seasonal fruit salad with a touch of whipped cream.

    Or combine it with apple for a Green Attitude fruit juice!

    Our tips for successfully growing your dwarf basil 

    Patience, it grows! Fine green basil likes to take its time.

    It grows in layers, with numerous branches giving rise to small leaves. Wait until there are at least 3 knots on the stem before harvesting for the first time (about 15 cm high).

    From 4-5 weeks or when the plant has 3 nodes on the stem, you can start harvesting. Cut a stem 1 cm above a node (no more!). Be sure to leave at least 10 cm of stem. Give priority to cutting the tallest leaves and those that shade the other Lingots. You can then enjoy your basil every week for 4 to 6 months.

    It's important to prune and harvest your herbs regularly, before the leaves reach the light.

    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.
