If you purchased a Sundial Farm Living plant in a plastic sleeve you should store all varieties, except basil, in your refrigerator (the ideal temperature is between 38°F and 45°F). The refrigerator is too cold for basil, which is best stored at temperatures between 50°F and 55°F. When storing basil choose an environment that is warm with access to partial sunlight. The kitchen can be an ideal place. The Living Plant you purchased comes with water in the sleeve, however, you will want to check the water ever day or so to replenish as necessary. 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of water should be sufficient. Remember less is more. No need to over hydrate your plant. Snip off what you need and continue to store properly.
Our products are intended for immediate culinary use and we suggest that you use them to create an instant herb garden in your kitchen. However, you can certainly try to replant our greens, but we don’t guarantee that they’ll transplant successfully. Sundial Farm varieties are grown hydroponically in a climate-controlled environment and many of our greens simply cannot survive the transition to a home garden. If you do attempt to replant them, here are some tips that may help in the transition:
Sundial Farm Living Leafy Greens are packaged with the roots intact so you get the freshest greens possible. Since they are still alive they last much longer than traditional cut greens. When you use Sundial Farm Living Leafy Greens you are utilizing these plants in their freshest state which enables you to experience their rich flavor as intended.
Some varieties are heartier than others but, on average, our plants should last between 6 and 10 days from the time they are harvested at our greenhouse facility. Following proper storage guidelines is essential to extending the life on all plants.
It’s not dirt! We grow our plants in a soilless media called peat moss, which is a natural growing medium that is harmless to your health. Simply remove the plant from the root ball when you are ready to use them.
