Veritable Smart Indoor Garden Kit – 4 Seed Varieties
If you aren’t the most green fingered person, but long to
enjoy home grown produce and fresh herbs, the Veritable Smart Garden is here to
help, and it’ll do all of the hard work for you! A brilliant way to enjoy a
year-round indoor ‘window box’ garden and ideal for anyone who loves to cook –
but might not have space for a garden – it’s a fabulous way to grow the
freshest possible ingredients, without any need for gardening knowhow.
Packed with highly sophisticated technology, Veritable’s
Smart Garden Kit provides its plants with everything they need, ensuring they
have the correct amount of light, irrigation and nutrients. You could keep it
in a shady corner well away from a window, and your plants would still grow.
Best of all, it’s super compact, so even if space is at a premium, you can
still enjoy a variety of home-grown herbs, fruit and veg.
Smart LED lighting
With its smart LED grow light system, you can enjoy growing
and eating fresh produce at any time of year, regardless of the season, as this
ultra-clever indoor garden will provide the exact level of light your produce
needs. This means you can put your garden anywhere – no worrying about getting
a good window spot, you could put the Veritable Garden in a room with no
windows at all, and the clever system would still provide the optimum lighting.
Similarly, if you place it near a window and it’s a bright day, the lights will
automatically dim – very smart – and energy saving too!
Automatically controlled, the lights stay on for 16 hours a
day (from the first time you switch it on), then switch off for 8 hours to
emulate a natural daylight cycle.
Simple set up
Setting up your smart garden couldn’t be simpler – or
quicker – just plug in, fill up the water reservoir, insert up to four Lingots
and watch things grow day by day… In as little as 4 weeks, you could be
enjoying your own home-grown produce.
Includes 4 organic seed packs, or Lingots
Inside the box, you’ll find one each of thyme, sweet
basil, chives and parsley Lingots that will sprout in a week, and be ready to
harvest in just 3-4 weeks.
“But what is a Lingot?” we hear you ask. They are innovative
pre-packed pods that contain the seeds along with a natural planting medium and
all the nutrients necessary for healthy growth, and they’re the perfect size to
pop into your Veritable Garden for super-easy planting. Made from coconut
fibre, peat and natural nutrients, the patented Lingots are 100% organic and
the composition is specific to the requirements of each plant variety, with the
optimum spacing between each seed, sufficient aeration for roots, correct PH
levels and essential nutrients to ensure regular, flourishing harvests.
Ready to harvest in 4 weeks
Perfect for the impatient, you will have ready-to-eat herbs,
grown from seed, in as little as 4 weeks! Your seeds will sprout in one week
and the herbs will be ready to harvest within a month, continuously providing
you with a flavoursome bounty for several months to come.
Please note: some of the Lingots i.e. tomatoes will take a little longer to
produce results, but you’ll be able to harvest them after around 3 months, and
they’ll keep fruiting for up to 2 months.
Lingots seeded with herb varieties will produce a whopping
4-6 months of harvest, helping you to create flavour-rich dishes time and time
again – just snip off what you need and throw it straight into the pot!
Lingots can be stored for up to 1 year before use, so any
that you don’t use immediately will be ready for planting once your first crop
Self-sufficient water reservoir
It’s impossible to over or under-water your plants – all you
need to do is top up the 2 litre water tank every 3-4 weeks and the Smart
Garden will ensure your plants receive the optimum amount of water for them to
thrive. So you can go on holiday assured that you will come home to the
welcoming aroma of fresh herbs and a bounty of beautiful veg rather than a
wilting crop of devastation. The ever-helpful garden will let you know when the
water reservoir needs refilling with a friendly blink of its LED warning light.
Pristine in white and compact with smooth, rounded edges,
Veritable’s Smart Garden will compliment any home. It has four compartments in
the base to hold Lingots, with two sleek, silver LED light poles in the centre.
The height of each light can be adjusted throughout the growing process, so if
one set of plants is growing faster than the others, you can arrange the lights
at different levels to suit the plants’ needs.
Certified organic produce
Working with certified organic seed producers in France,
Veritable work hard to ensure only the best quality seeds are selected, testing
new seeds for a year before releasing them to market. This means you can enjoy
the most vibrant, fragrant and tasty produce possible. All of the seeds are
GMO, pesticide and insecticide free.
The folks at Veritable are very conscious of their
environmental impact, which is why all of their packaging is recyclable, they
use plant-based ink and sustainably sourced paper. The Lingots are all
compostable and biodegradable, so you can pop them on the compost heap, or into
your compost bin once you’ve harvested all that they can give.
More plant varieties to choose from
Replacement Lingots are available here on the website, together with a small selection of different varieties of Lingot
to choose from. In the coming weeks there will be more and more available, so please keep a look out! There will be everything from juicy
strawberries, to aromatic herbs, leafy greens and even edible flowers to create
show stopping desserts and salads.
The base unit is BPA free.
Aware of the ever-increasing problem of urbanisation, this
French based company wanted to make it possible for everyone, including city
dwellers, to grow their own fresh fruit and veg at home, regardless of space or
type of abode. Pioneers of urban farming, their innovative and modern creations
have won them an array of awards – and quite right too!
