Growing a garden just got high-tech. Say goodbye to that pathetic parsley and battered basil. With the hydroponic AeroGarden—on sale at Amazon for half-off today only, you can grow your own produce without soil! Or mess! Or much effort at all! The black version of this glorious gadget is usually $400 (the white is $294), but today you can snag both colors for just $200. Think of all the money you’ll save in the long run.
It’s so easy to garden, even black thumbs will reap the benefits. Simply drop in the all-natural, non-GMO, pre-seeded pods, add water, and you’ll see sprouts in days and a full-grown harvest in weeks. The kit includes pods for Genovese basil, Thai basil, curly parsley, Italian parsley, thyme, chives and mint, plus Miracle-Gro liquid plant food.
These containers will hold nine plants up to 24 inches tall. Bring on those greens! (Not seeing sprouts? There’s a 100 percent germination guarantee.)
Best part? You don’t have to remember to water! The machine will automatically turn the LED “grow lights” on and off and remind you when to add water and food.
Want to check on your green friends while you’re away? Use the AeroGarden app to view status or turns the lights on and off. Sweet.
As you can imagine, reviewers are loving every minute of this machine. “We have really enjoyed growing our herbs with the AeroGarden,” says a happy customer. “Set up took “basil”-cally 5 minutes, and our herbs were sprouting in no “thyme.” We have never had a garden of our own, so it has been a big “dill” watching our herbs grow. The size is great for our medium-size kitchen. It fits like it was “mint” to be! In all seriousness the AeroGarden has been a treat to have. It’s amazing how easy it was to set up, maintain with the digital reminders, and watch the herbs grow quickly!”
