Poppin Pods Title FAQ Herbs and Shells.jpg

Do Poppin Pods herbs really last longer than pre-cut herbs?

As Poppin Pods are actual living plants with the roots still intact, they naturally last longer than pre-cut herbs – which are prone to premature wilting and discolouration.

In addition, our pods have been uniquely designed with WellTech technology built-in, which helps to retain water – keeping the herbs alive for longer.

How long do Poppin Pods herbs last?

The expected shelf life of our herbs varies according to the herb variety – as well as how much sun and water they receive. We recommend you place them in a sunny position and give them a splash of water every two days, to keep them happy and healthy for longer.

Don’t I get the same nutritional value from pre-cut herbs, found in the supermarkets?

As is the case with fresh produce, the flavour and nutritional value of herbs begins to diminish from the moment they are cut or picked. Consider this in the context of the distribution timings from farm to market.

Poppin Pods herbs are living plants – with the roots still intact. This means that their nutritional integrity and flavour is preserved right up until you are ready to enjoy them. Simply cut the amount you require for each dish, as and when you need it, for a super boost in essential vitamins, minerals and dynamic flavour.

Aren’t Poppin Pods the same as potted herbs?

Poppin Pods are fully-grown, ready for you to enjoy – no green thumb needed.

Better yet, unlike potted herbs, Poppin Pods are mess-free. Each pod has been uniquely designed without the drip holes that are characteristic of potted herbs, whilst gridded feet and a topsoil surface mess prevent unwanted spillage. It’s all thanks to our proprietary SpillGuard technology.

Once you’ve consumed each pod of herbs, simply place it into the recycling bin and pick up a new pod next time you are in-store – it’s easy.

How do I care for my herbs?

As with any living plant, a touch of TLC goes a long way. We recommend you water your herbs every two days and place them in a sunny position to help keep them happy and healthy for longer.

What herb varieties make up the Poppin Pods range?

Poppin Pods currently offers a range of ten herbs. These include Basil, Continental Parsley, Curly Parsley, Coriander, Mint, Dill, Sage, Tarragon, Rosemary, Thyme as well as Rocket.
