Aerogarden

Herb kit Aerogarden

One of the things that kept me happy during the summer, is this Aerogarden system.  It combines a hydroponic water and nutrient system with lighting, and grows the most aromatic herbs, fresh lettuce, and juicy cherry tomatoes. Hydroponics is a system of growing plants with their roots suspended in water, absorbing the moisture and nutrients, without the need of soil as a growing medium.

The system is extremely easy to use, you just add water and the provided nutrient packs every two weeks. The plants will keep providing for months and will live a long life if the correct care measures are followed.  I think its a great product, that not only gardeners can enjoy. I’ve made many basil pesto dishes from the Aerogarden’s basil alone.
Some seed pods in the kit may not sprout, in my case it was the chives and parsley, but as you can see I’ve grown more basil in the failed pods, so you can almost anything to your taste.

Herb kit:

includes: Genovese Basil, Purple Opal Basil, Dill, Chives, Parsely, Thyme, and Mint.
These herbs livened up my sandwiches and dishes all through the summer.

Salad Greens:

This grows some very nice varieties of lettuce, which can really grow out of control, and provide you with a continuous harvest.

I have also made use of the Aerogarden system by using it as a seed starter setup, I simply place trays of seed pots under the lights for warmth lighting, before moving them outside.

Overall, I’ve had a very pleasant experience with the Aerogarden system, and would recommend everyone to start with the very productive Herb Kit.

  1. wow, those would make a great salad! lol sorry but most of the time all i think bout is my hungry stomach

  2. Of course they would! bil3ax gardening should be all about food!
    I’m growing what my family and I like to eat, its all about eating what you grow at the end! :D

  3. You don’t use any fertilizer in the Aerogarden?

  4. I don’t really have a green thumb but I’m tempted to get this!

  5. So I finally go to their store and found it closed! According to the in front of it, it has been closed for two months now! Do you have another contact number?

    • Oh! Try contacting them through their twitter or Facebook, I’m unsure about their current situation..
      Sorry to hear you went all the way to find it closed..

      • I contacted them through twitter, so we’ll see.

      • Just got mine today and assembled it! Got any tips?

      • Which kit are you planting?
        Be careful not to get mold on the seed pods, it stops germination. There are some natural anti mold solutions that are safe to use like hydrogen peroxide. Found in true value.

      • How would I know that it’s molding? 4 of the 8 pots have sprouted. Chives, parsley and dill hasn’t yet. The chives one has a funky smell!

      • Hello Budoor, sorry for the late reply,
        You can plant your own seeds in whatever didn’t sprout. Parsley and chives didn’t sprout in mine either. Fuzzy white stuff on the surface of the seed pods is the mold/fungus.

  6. Just desire to say your article is as astonishing.
