Red Shiso. A red, beautiful herb that most of you might not have heard of, with a flavor resembling mint, grapes, blackcurrant and anise and an exotic look. It's for Japanese what basil is for us. They use in it sushi, wasabi, for pickling, in tea...but our favorite of all is Red Shiso juice. Sweet, refreshing, and beautifully red.
With our refill selection growing continuously, such questions as "Is Catnip really just for cats?", "What do I do with Red Shiso?", "What are the health benefits of Cockscomb?" and "What should I grow next?" can come up more and more often. We've got all the answers right here.
For some people, Click & Grow is the easiest way to grow fresh herbs, tomatoes, chilies and strawberries to add to their dishes, teas, or simply snack on. For others, it is the opportunity to bring nature into their homes without the need to know the first thing about gardening.

Even though you can keep your Smart Herb Garden literally anywhere, finding just the right place for it can sometimes come as a challenge.
