Another member of the Lamiaceae family along with both mint and basil, thyme has long been connected with medicinal as well as culinary practices around the world, sometimes being burnt as an incense.
While thyme may be bought dry it is always more flavourfull when freshly picked, which is where we can help with our thyme Hydro-herb kit.
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 years growth and you can always buy some more to keep your garden growing once you've got the hydro' bug.
Arugula, also called roquette, salad rocket, garden rocket, or rugula, is an annual herb of the mustard family (Brassicaceae), grown for its pungent edible leaves.
Native to the Mediterranean, arugula is a common salad vegetable in many parts of southern Europe and has grown in popularity around the world for its peppery, nutty taste and its nutritional content. The young leaves are often eaten raw and are a great source of calcium, iron, and vitamins A, C, and K. So much like basil are great to aid in immunity and healing.
It's also the fastest germinating of all our herbs usually getting started in 12 to 24 hours. So if you are thinking of using the kit for educational as well as culinary reasons, Rocket is great at keeping young ones interested from the very start.
Coriander or cilantro as some people know it, is a very popular herb. Coriander is a versatile herb with its seeds being used as a spice and the plant itself being used as a herb.
Sticking with its use as a herb, coriander is described as having a mellow even subtle taste profile, slightly tart tasting with lemony/lime edge. Really quite different in taste to the seeds. Much like basil heating the leaves diminishes their flavour rapidly, so it is best added just before serving the meal coriander loses it’s flavour rapidly with time after being picked or stored in any way, making having a Hydro-herb kit in your kitchen ready to go all year round a very attractive option.
