Last year I tried to grow herbs indoors in a little pot, propped up by my kitchen windowsill. Unfortunately, I completely failed and they all died. Maybe my window wasn’t sunny enough, or I didn’t water them enough. I love growing kitchen herbs outside during summer, but clearly I don’t have the same green thumb for indoor gardening. But that all changed with my AeroGarden Harvest.

How Does the AeroGarden Harvest Work?

I must say, the AeroGarden was ridiculously easy to set up. I just popped in the seed pods, added water and liquid plant food (which is included in the box), plugged it in, and turned it on. The LED grow lights are on a timer, and they shut off automatically each day.

My AeroGarden came with the gourmet herbs seed pod kit: Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme and Thai basil. The seeds started sprouting in less than a week.

When the water level gets low or I need to add more plant food, a small alert light flashes as a reminder. So it really is foolproof. This is great because I’m super busy as a working mom. I did forget at first to move the grow light up higher as my plants plants grew taller, but once I figured that out, they had plenty of room to stretch out.

My coworker Justin also raved. “I absolutely love my AeroGarden! I do not have a green thumb but I am able to have fresh herbs at my fingertips,” he says. “It’s planting, plug-in style.”

Overall, I was very happy with the AeroGarden Harvest. I would also like to experiment with other seed pods, like the Italian herb kit, or the salad garden kit.
