Before we jump into anything, let's make one thing clear: Click & Grow DOES NOT use genetically modified seeds or organisms in our products. The following is a scientific view on the processes taking place in nature and plant breeding.
We have always been dependent on plants. In big picture, absolutely everything in our lives has more or less been made possible because of them. It also means that we are pretty good at draining this resource. If the population keeps growing at the same speed as now, then by 2050 we'll need 75% more food to survive. With natural resources not being able to pick up with our consumption habits, we have to find new ways to produce food cheaper and more efficiently. By now the best-found solution is to recombine the genetic codes of the plants to create stronger, hardier, better (and cheaper) offsprings. It might sound artificial, but it's actually what often happens in nature, and even the hated/loved GMO methods are inspired by this natural recombination aka traditional breeding methods. Here's how it happens.

We are a bunch that always tries to find new ways to do things, and you probably know it. After all, that is one of the main reasons there is Click & Grow. If everyone grows produce in the back yard, we're gonna go ahead and start growing it in a closet in our living room (aka Smart Farm). If everyone drinks pilsner on a hot summer day, we're gonna go ahead and cook up a Honey Basil ale. Speaking of which...
With the Strawberry Refill for Smartpot being the most anticipated and the most celebrated Smartpot Refill in the history of Click & Grow, we decided to put together a list of must-dos to help you get the most out of it.
But before we begin, let's answer this one question. Why is it so cool to grow strawberries with Click & Grow?
We all have been waiting a long time for a new product launch. But even the Click & Grow team did not fully believe that the next launch after the Smart Herb Garden is going to be this big, this revolutionary, and this futuristic... until today.
