In The Kit
Every kit contains all you need to your chosen herb. We use a recycled wine bottle to construct the body of the system, all edges are ground by hand so there’s no need to worry about sharp corners left over from cutting the bottle. Watering the kits could not be simpler just keep an eye on the water line (clearly visible) and top up when needed, every couple of weeks. Each kit contains enough organic hydroponic fluid for you to be able to grow your herbs for approximately two years. The kits also come with spare parts so that if your horticultural skills require a little honing there’s a second chance waiting.

The fern like leaves offer an aromatic flavouring that goes very well with fish dishes, one such simple use is as an addition to tartar sauce further bringing out the taste of the fish. Using dill as an addition to soups and pickles is another very popular activity in Eastern European areas as is its use in borscht. As with most herbs its flavour wains rapidly after picking although freezing does help keep its flavour better than other storage methods.
