It's that time of year again - the birthday month. Click & Grow is turning 6 years old this year!
From the initial 1 Smart Flowerbed Starter Kit with 7 refills, we've grown to 3 Smart Herb Gardens, 5 Smart Flowerbeds, 24 different plant refills and 2 major product prototypes - the Smart Farm and the Robot Garden. And we're not stopping here!
Fall/winter season has never been famous for its fresh produce, even though these are the times we need vitamins the most. For supporting our immune system, for thinning out the “winter coats” gifted by the so-generously-consumed comfort foods and for adding a little sensation of spring & summer to our long and cold nights. Here are the TOP 6 edibles that will make this year's fall/winter season truly stand out! Get them in your local supermarket or even easier- grow them on your own windowsill with zero effort in the Smart Herb Garden!
Parsley is one of the world's most popular herbs. It has been cultivated for 2,000 years, and was used medicinally long before that. Highly nutritious, it is a great addition to our Smart Herb Garden refill selection.
Parsley has many health benefits and has been used as a cure for many ailments. It contains more vitamin C than any other standard culinary vegetable, approximately three times as much as oranges and about the same as blackcurrants, making it the ultimate vitamin bomb.
We have already touched the topic of plant communication briefly before. While it might seem that each tree and flower is enjoying peace and solitude throughout its lifetime, it’s not entirely true. They're actually letting other plants and living creatures as far as miles away know of what's happening around by releasing specific chemicals, by transmitting electric signals, by releasing specific vibrations, by using their roots etc. The plants have actually gone as far as developing a “plant internet” that lets them communicate with each other. But the most noticeable tool of communication of plants is their movement. And we actually tend to use it for our own entertainment! Think of mimosa and you'll understand what we're talking about.
A lot of people don't consider plants to be the most exciting thing in the world, as they don't move, talk or interact with you. But hey, there is one that does those things. If you followed us on Instagram in early spring, you might already know that we're talking about nothing other than the Mimosa Pudica.
