I bought the Aerogarden after seeing the recommendations here on Fresh Chalk. I planted lettuce, tomato, basil and mint. The basil and lettuce are growing so fast! the tomato and mint are coming along just fine. I love that the sensor tells me when to add plant food and water. I love that it has a self watering system that filters through the pods. My kids love to come downstairs each morning to see how much everything has grown.
What a fun gift idea! We have an aquaponics garden outside but it's nice to see an option for indoors!

Cindy SersigLiz Stella I joined a FB page for Aerogarden and found that I can transplant what I grow into pots outside. I've got lettuce, tomatoes, mint and basil thriving outside now!

So do they come w/ seeds or how does it work? This is really cool! I usually do seedlings but time got away from me this year!

Yes, my unit came with salad greens seeds and some herbs I also ordered tomatoes. They all generally begin to sprout in 1-2 weeks.

I travel a lot for work, which can be frustrating at times if you have houseplants, which is why I got the Aerogarden. It has saved me and my houseplants so many times. . . I also love having fresh herbs available when I'm cooking, and with this gardening set I always have what I need when I need it.
I love growing herbs with our Aerogarden! I am trying hard not to buy more to grow more herbs and tomatoes. It's nice to have access to fresh herbs year-round. It is a great addition to you other indoor gardening projects!
Agreed with the other recommendations. I actually rolled my eyes a bit (sorry mom) when I received this as a gift -- then we spent a full year with fresh thyme, chives, cilantro and more on demand and once again, my mom knew best. I also put other small plants near it to take advantage of its timed grow light!
I just clicked on the link for more info. I love the fact that it tells you when to water and add plant food. My thumb isn't very green! I've been contemplating getting one because I love fresh herbs. Thank you for sharing. I know why boys will love this as well.

In addition to herbs, we have grown flowers as well. We had some cascading petunias that were amazing!
