Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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! :-)
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.

The plants grow fast and taste good. There is a good variety on the website for the seeds. Only concern is that it takes at least 50 watts or more and it runs almost all day long.Published on June 4, 2009 by morlocx
