Growing hydroponically means there's no mess and as the growth fluid is clearly visible in the lower part of the bottle it's very hard to run out without you noticing. There is enough fluid in the pack for at least a year's growth!

About Tarragon

Before we go any further there are a couple of points that we would like to clarify regarding this offering. As you may know ‘French’ tarragon may only be cultivated using cuttings from the mother plant, this is in the main due to the way that their roots are formed. There is a commonly known second type of tarragon (these are found in most gardening shops) ‘Russian’ tarragon, unfortunately ‘Russian’ tarragon tastes of very little more than grass. To be clear my good people ‘THIS IS NOT RUSSIAN TARRAGON!’, we use a variety of tarragon commonly known as ‘Mexican’ or less commonly ‘Spanish’ tarragon. The flavour profile of this type of tarragon is very nearly as strong as ‘French’ tarragon, so we would suggest you use just a little more than you would normally use in your cooking to obtain the same desired taste.

Mexican tarragon can reach heights of 40cm or so and will happily grow all year round indoors, with its characteristic yellow/golden flowers. When eaten it has an anise like flavour which lends a gorgeous aromatic tone to dishes especially soups and sauces. Interestingly it is also said to have insect repellent properties with the dried plant being burnt as a form of incense for exactly this purpose.

Comes with instructions! :)

 DESIGNED WITH THE ENVIRONMENT IN MIND

We have done our absolute best to ensure that the Hydro-herb kits we sell are as environmentally sound as we can make them. We source our parts carefully trying to ensure that we have as small a carbon footprint as we can. All of the parts in our kit are either recycled and recyclable or entirely biodegradable. The wine bottles that form the largest part of our kit are obviously reused rather than recycled locally minimizing any carbon production from melting the glass down or transport. We use capillary matting that is recycled and the plastic bottles in our kit are also made from recycled plastic that may itself be recycled. The Jiffy Pellets that we use are made of coir (ground coconut husk) rather than peat so that we are not contributing to the reduction of peat bogs. The cork lid/placemat comes from renewable sources in Europe as do the natural rubber band. The terracotta pebbles used in the kit along with the cork and natural rubber band are all biodegradable.
