Even with an easy-to-use product like ours, it’s good to begin with a non-fussy plant. Basil makes your first Smart Garden experience easy. It grows super fast and isn't bothered by a variable environment (too warm, too humid, no sunlight). Once you get experience under your belt growing basil, you’ll be ready to take on any seed imaginable!
That said, if you feel you have the gardening game down pat, you could add some spicy chilis to your order and grow those instead. Your basil refills will last for 2 years (or you can give them to a friend!).
