Last year I tried to grow herbs indoors in a little pot, propped up by my kitchen window. 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 herbs and vegetables outside during summer, but clearly I don’t have the same green thumb for indoor gardening. So, I was eager to find a different option, because buying fresh herbs at the grocery store gets expensive. That’s why I jumped at the chance to try an 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 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 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 salsa garden kit.
