Basil is doing great, every other herb is very meager.
Karen Knabe
They have saved me tons in money as we eat lots of salad combos and I love cooking with fresh herbs and spices.

Verified Purchase
I purchased 2 of the 7-pod Classics mid December '08. Cancer patient restricted to the house because of no immune system, so grocery shopping in a public place was out of the question. I started herbs and chef salad bar greens and began harvesting the salad greens within 10 days: they are both still going strong. I enjoy Mesclun Mix, Salad Greens, Romaine, Baby Greens and Arugula (and have 7 remaining pods for replacement when these have lived their life). The second one began providing herbs to use within 16 days: Parsley, Italian Basil, Purple Basil, Thyme, Mint, Dill and Chives. The only disappointment was Chives (they failed miserably). The Purple Basil didn't last longer than 3 months before it 'died', but the others are still going strong 5 months later.

I had been following the prices on these units and just couldn't afford them until they went on sale. I could not be happier with my purchase of 2 units, the quality of the product, ease of use, and resulting herbs/produce. I have made a 'drying' screen for the herbs that grow faster than I can use them and once dried, I simply place in an old 'spice jar' from long-ago used up store-bought spices/herbs.

Units advise when to add water and nutrients (included with each seed pod set) via small flashing lights, although I check every few days to keep water levels high. I add luke-warm water vs cold right from tap in an attempt to not shock the plants when adding more water. The taste of the produce is fresh, clean, no sand or grit, not a critter in sight. I find myself picking mint, parsley and lettuce from the units as I walk by to munch on while doing chores. They have saved me tons in money as we eat lots of salad combos and I love cooking with fresh herbs and spices.

I have the classic black (as well as the Pro 200) and have been completely satisfied with the product. Any problems were dealt with swiftly and courteously by the extremely helpful sales and customer service staff. We use this product in winter to produce fresh greens and herbs (separate units). The unit is quiet and pretty error free. Even if you have a brown thumb it will be hard to not grow your own vegetables with this product. The computer tells you when to add water and nutrient tables. The light bar is a snap to raise as the plants grow. After six to nine months of usage the natural lights should be replaced. An easy task and the lights are readily available from Areogrow and Amazon. The seed kits may seem pricey but we figure that we save easily 3-10 times the price of the kits.

We have yet to have any insect or other infestation with this unit after two years of use. Read the manual, follow the manual and if you are stuck the website has an excellent FAQ. Customer service is also quite available if all else fails.

These make excellent gifts for your gardening friends, parents and in-laws. Not bad for Mother's day either! :-)

Bought this same AeroGarden as a gift for my son for the holidays. One of the two bulbs burned out in a week and then the water pump died, causing the plants to dry up and die. AeroGarden customer service was impossible to deal with, reporting a two hour wait for service, due to high volume of callers. The concept seemed great, but it did not work out at all for us. Fortunately Amazon was great about accepting a return and giving a full refund.

I received the black unit as a Christmas gift and have been enjoying fresh herbs ever since. The thyme and oregano didn't make it so (with tweasers) I stuck replacement seeds that I bought for 20-cents at WalMart in the existing pods and now have three pods of chives and three varieties of basil -- those with the thriving mint and parsley, I am all set with my herb staples. I use the herbs in everything I cook (except cereal!)and am constantly munching on the mint as I pluck it to put in my hot and iced tea. The bonus is the wonderful fragrance that remains in the kitchen from the aromatic herbs...especially the basil. This unit is a joy to all of my senses: I love the way it looks, the way it smells, and definitely the way it tastes (not the unit, the herbs!). It is wonderfully satisfying to harvest such freshness every day...no matter what the weather conditions are outside.

I have 2 Aerogarden 7 pod Classic systems (the Classic 7 pod, 2 season herb w/ dressing mixer & a 7 pod Classic). I'm on my 2nd round of herbs & 1st round of tomatoes. My beans croaked. My results have been mixed on both units, and I learned the following from talking to Customer Service:

1) use distilled water
2) make sure the nutrient tablets aren't mushy
3) store nutrient tablets in the freezer
4) Aerogarden should be switched over to liquid nutrients by November 2009 (12/16/09: Customer Service now say early next year for the liquid nutrients).

I've had mixed results in growing my herbs & beans. Basil grows like gangbusters, as does the mint & chives, but the rest have been slow to grow or don't grow well at all. I've called Customer Service multiple times, and each time the representative has been wonderful and helpful. They are also quick to replace non-growing seed pods, just as their warranty states. However, even with switching out the grow bulbs after 6 months, I'm still frustrated with my results and hope that the liquid nutrients will be the turning point for my future gardens.

Since Customer Service is convinced that Aerogarden users will see much better results with liquid nutrients, I will update with results once the liquid nutrients are shipped with the seed pods. As of today's date, Aerogarden is still shipping with the messy nutrient tablets.
