The Aerogarden includes an herb seed kit with six pods, including basil, parsley, dill, thyme, basil, and mint and a bottle of natural plant nutrients that will last a full season of growth. Plus, it's super easy to use as it will remind you when to add water and plant food. It automatically turns the lights on and off, so even if you don't have a green thumb, you can grow herbs at home.
Promising review: "The AeroGarden has exceeded my expectations! It really is as easy as I hoped and has been growing so well. I received it as a Christmas gift and set it up right around New Year’s. The little sprouts have grown like crazy in the last week or so. It was pretty much idiot-proof to set up, and I have only had to add plant food once and water twice in the last month. It’s amazing! The light is very bright but it doesn’t bother me because it brightens that corner of my kitchen when it’s on. I am not a big gardener, and even though I can keep an indoor basil plant alive for a few months at a time, I prefer to not have to wonder when or how much to water. I’m planning some recipes to start using the basil, Thai basil, and dill this week because I can tell they need to start being pruned. I seriously am so happy I got this and might even get another one to grow cherry tomatoes and peppers." —WallacEm
