We received this AeroGarden as a Christmas gift last year and didn’t really think about putting it up until spring. So in March when we were getting the garden itch we got it out and set it up on the kitchen window sill. It was only about a week before the sprouts started. At first, the Dill took off ahead of the pack and the Curly Parsley was the last to sprout. As you can see in the video everything is doing amazing and we are in desperate need of finding the time to cut and dry these herbs for later use.
The AeroGarden is Easy to Use
This thing is so easy to operate. The instructions for set up were super clear and easy to follow. Once it’s sitting in the window (or anywhere thanks to the integrated grow light) it even reminds you when to add water and plant food. It even came with Genovese Basil, Thai Basil, Curly Parsley, Dill, Thyme and Mint plus enough Plant Food for a full season. It is definitely a welcome addition to our homestead and could be used anywhere.
We are considering replacing all but one of the Basil varieties and the Thyme with Lettuce and Spinach to create a year-round salad bar. More on that to come. I have seen other videos where people grow cherry tomatoes and peppers as well.
Thanks for your interest in our homestead!
