    Stevia or "Sugar Leaf" might not be the poshest representative of the plant kingdom - no bright flowers or coloured leaves, but this plant has some inner qualities that once tried are hard to forget.

  • Winter has arrived unexpectedly, as usual. In most places around the world it means that plants need much more care than normally. During winter, the most complicated issue for plants is lack of light.

    What’s interesting is that people understand the necessity of light differently. A lot of our customers from Brazil complain that they don't have enough light there while customers from Norway confirm they have more light than necessary to grow their plants. We should bear in mind that plants feel light in their own way, not the way we do. How could we know, whether our plant has light enough for sprouting and growing? 

    Here are some pictures of our customers’ plants and you can clearly see that the plants bend towards the light, desperately searching for it, stretching and suffering from the light stress:

  • Just about this time 3 years ago a company called Click & Grow was founded. The founder, Mattias Lepp, had a grand vision - to change the way how plants are grown around the world. As the story of how the idea behind Click & Grow was formed is actually quite peculiar itself, lets take a look back..

  • As someone with a track record of being able to kill a cactus, I was obviously the perfect choice to test out the Click & Crow’s new smart gardens, although I call them pots. No pun intended. So basically, if those poor plants survive me, the company could sell these pots to… well, pretty much to everyone. You could buy the pot for your daughter and let her imaginary friend take care of it.

  • To begin with, let me give you a bit of an introduction…

    My name is Vanessa and I am one of the Click & Grow brand ambassadors. I originally come from Estonia (which by the way, makes Click & Grow even more special and close to heart for me!), but I haven’t really lived there for the past 7 years. I’ve spent quite a bit of time living in Italy, Hungary & the US. Working as a consultant for a marketing consultancy means long hours and a lot of travel – typically I go on business trips on a weekly basis.

    The chili pepper, also known as chile pepper or chilli pepper, is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum. It’s estimated that Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet since at least 7500 BC. Archaeological evidence at sites located in Southwestern-Ecuador suggest that chili peppers were domesticated more than 6000 years ago. Astonishing!

  • Every Tuesday we cover the uses and qualities of our edible Click & Grow plants. This week we’ll look at Thyme. 

    Click & Grow Thyme

    Background

    Interestingly, there are a number of theories as to the origins of the name thyme. Most agree that its derived from the Greek word thumos or from the Latin fumus which both mean smoke. The association with smoke probably comes from the fact that thyme was used in sacrifices or from the plants fragrant odor, which is often tied with the word fumigate.

    What we do know is that thyme originates from the Mediterranean area and in ancient times, thyme was appreciated for its antiseptic properties. For example, Greeks used it as a fumigant while Egyptians made use of its qualities in the embalming process.
