Hi, Click & Growers!
About a while ago we recruited 5 of you to be our at home testers, agreeing to be the guinea pigs for new and up-and-coming plant pods we are considering launching! Our testers grow potential new plant pods around the world in different climates and locations with different light and temperature levels, helping us find the plants that can withstand any environmental conditions and be brought to all of you promising the highest yield and growth. With their help, we have tested and launched Rosemary, Dill, Black Pansy and Red Sweet Pepper.
Our five testers are now starting to test Lemon Basil- which has a fragrant lemon scent. It is used in cooking (soup, pasta, stew and steamed or grilled dishes and pesto).
Basil likes to be cut! You can start trimming your plants approximately one month after planting. Every time a branch has 3-5 pair of leaves, repeat pruning the branches back to their first set of (true)leaves.
Our testers post weekly updates with photos in our Gardeners forum so all of you can see and share any helpful tips and see what new plant we are testing! So, if you’re interested in staying up to date, check back!
