Product Review: AeroGarden Harvest Wifi

This past Christmas, I asked Santa for an AeroGarden and he answered!  I was introduced to the AeroGarden while shopping at Sur la Table and automatically thought it would be a great addition to my kitchen!   I have grow lamps and shelves set up in my basement for the winter months, but having fresh herbs at my fingertips is fantastic!

If you haven’t heard of an AeroGarden before, it is an all-in-one aqua system for your kitchen. 

The first thing I did when I opened up my AeroGarden was read the directions.  There are certain height requirements to make sure you can raise the light source properly, but it fights under most kitchen cabinets.

Next, I set up the AeroGarden with water, the pods that came with the kit, the plant food, and then I waited!  Here is a picture after 4 days.  As you can see, my seedlings are growing!!

As a busy business professional, it is nice that the AeroGarden blinks when it needs food or water, you don’t have to worry about the levels!

I had a few issues connecting the AeroGarden to the wifi in order to use my tablet as a remote, but I was able to figure it out.  I ended up not using the remote feature as often as I assumed I would.  The AeroGarden is more of a “set it and forget it” appliance.

As far as the plants that come with the herb kit, the dill is growing at a much faster rate (as expected), therefore I have been harvesting it and using it in recipes or drying for longer term storage.  I have harvested the basil once already and made a batch of pesto!

AeroGarden has kit combos including a tomato kit, herb kit, and a blank kit for your own seeds.

After almost two months of use, here is my review:

    1.    Fresh herbs at your fingertips, what is not to love about that?
  2.    Self monitoring and blinking reminders means I don't need to remember             the water and feeding schedule.
  3.    Option to grow any type of seeds using the different types of kids.

  1.    Wifi App was a bit confusing and took several tries to connect, but the               app is not necessary to use the AeroGarden.
  2.    The LED lights are bright, and I mean BRIGHT!  The AeroGarden is the               brightest light in my house - not a deal breaker, but should be noted.  

If you are on the fence about getting an AeroGarden, I highly suggest it!  I love mine and use it everyday!
