Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need any experience in growing vegetables?

    Absolutely not! The best thing about Coltiverra is that you have the constant support of a team of professional horticulturalists who are always ready to give advice on what to do. The more time you spend growing your own food with us the more you'll learn. Also don't worry if you forget to water your garden one-day, we won't let your plants die!

  • Are there maximum or minimum time limits?

    You may keep your plot of land for as long as you want. However, due to the lifecycle of plants, there is a minimum 3 month subscription period.

  • Does that mean I have to wait 3 months before I can get any produce?

    When you start your garden we plant mature plants. This means you'll be able to receive fresh produce almost straightaway without have to wait the normal 100/120 day plant lifecycle. However you can always request to have seeds planted when you start your garden if you prefer starting from scratch.

  • How do I know that the plants I see on the web-cam are the ones I get delivered at home?

    Our users are welcome to come visit us anytime and harvest their own garden themselves. To arrange a time write to It's also a good opportunity to discover a beautiful corner of Southern Italy, right on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

  • Can I use Coltiverra on my smartphone?

    Absolutely! Our web-app is fully responsive and has been optimized for handheld and tablet devices. In early 2016 we'll also be launching a native app for iOS and Android with special features, which will allow users to receive push notifications and updates on their garden's status.

  • What happens when my plants are ready to be harvested?

    Once your produce is mature you can choose to either have it delivered to your home or to resell it back to Coltiverra in exchange for credits. In the future we will also be offering the possibility to process your produce. For example you could choose to have your tomatoes sliced, dried and packaged before being sent.

  • Are there other costs besides the monthly rent and plant fee?

    As long as you do not ask for extra services (i.e. substituting/moving plants or processing produce) there are no extra costs. All extra services and their precise cost in credits are listed beforehand and require your explicit consent.

  • What can't I do with my garden?

    Food and arable land are precious resources, and for this reason we at Coltiverra do not let plants die.
