Review by arlenea
I start basil and parsley in my aerogardens each fall. All plants flourish and when basil is so expensive, I have fresh right in my own kitchen for cooking Italian food! (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Kelly
The genovese basil in this kit makes the tastiest pesto of any varieties I have tried. The seeds germinate quickly and with regular "pinching" of the plants, I harvest leaves for weeks and weeks. As an aside, I've had my AeroGarden for almost 4 years now and it's still going strong. Love it! (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Chris
My wife likes to try a lot of different dishes with sauces and we love the taste of sweet basil. She is able to pick fresh basil anytime and since we live in the northeast, we are limited with our outdoor growing time. The Aero Garden enables us to continue to have sweet basil throughout the winter. It's so convenient and it so nice to have fresh herbs anytime! We love it!!! (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Basil Lover
I love fresh basil, so being able to use the Aerogrow Garden to extend my basil growing season into the winter is great! We make Pesto and use the fresh basil sprinkled on top of marinara, and other dishes, and we often make a pesto dipping oil that is so delicious with fresh bread. Love it! (Posted over a month ago)

Review by Marsha
I have 2 Aero 3s and 1 Aero 6. Both 3s are herb gardens and mostly growing this wonderful, fragrant, delicious stand-up herb. The one at work has my admin. assts. in awe ... they all stop by to check on "their crops." I can't tell you many vats of different types of sauces have been made among us all from "our" growing basil. Not so lucky with the green beans in the Aero 6 but it's early days. They need a little more time and different needs. Just know any questions at all you have, Aero's support staff on the phone and via e-mail respond immediately and KNOW the answers to your questions. Side note: order your bulbs and air stones in advance ... they sell out quickly and take a while to restock. (Posted over a month ago)

Review by Karen
Last year I didn't plant herbs in my AeroGarden. You don't know what you have until it's gone. I bought fresh herbs all year and it cost me a fortune. I LOVE using herbs I've grown myself and they are always purely fresh. (Posted over a month ago)

Love basil for cooking and for garnish and flavor in appetizers. Wish it grew even faster--I think I could have 20 plants and use it ALL! (Posted over a month ago)

One growth makes enough pesto to freeze up to 16 portions making this product very economical indeed. Better flavor then any grocery store variety of of fresh herbs available. (Posted over a month ago)

I've grown a variety of plants in my aerogrow, this is the 1st time with all basil and it is growing fast. I hope to harvest a lot over the winter while my outdoor garden is under snow. (Posted over a month ago)

As a cook of mostly Italian food basil is one of my most used herbs I can keep it year round (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Maggie
This is my second basil seed kit, and can't do without it. I started my previous one in late May and had more than enough basil until Thanksgiving, even though two of the pods never sprouted. After the first month or so, I had enough basil to made a batch of pesto at least every week. Anyone who uses basil year-round will love having this. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by So many recipes, not enough time
I love having fresh basil at my fingertips because I could never keep it alive outside. I keep finding new recipes to use it in and chop it up for sprinkling on many of my italian chicken dishes for some extra pizazz. It's also great with scrambled eggs and some parmesan cheese. I received one pod that didn't sprout at all, but there's still plenty for my small family of 3. I find that if I trim it earlier, more growth takes place, and the little leaves underneath the big ones get a chance to grow. Otherwise they turn brown around the edges. The thing about my Aerogarden is that I must not have cleaned out the motor area properly because it makes a loud grinding/humming noise the entire time the light is on. I noticed a little blurb in one of my other planting booklets, AFTER I had already planted the basil. I think there should be prevalent information about how to clean the motor area in every planting booklet that goes out. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Overworked Mom
So thrilled with the all-basil kit! So much more flavor than store bought. Only about 5 weeks in with multiple shoots from each pod and already harvesting. Can't wait to keep this one going for months to come! (Posted over a month ago)

Review by Amy
I've tried other seed kits, and sometimes one type of herb will overwhelm the others...or you just can't find enough uses for dill...that kind of thing. Having all one kind of herb means they're all the same height, and I can ALWAYS use basil. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Poppins
I love to add basil to just about everything, so this kit has been a godsend. I had sprouts within three days, and enough to make pesto in just about three weeks. Two of the pods didn't sprout at all--don't know why--but the others are growing like crazy. I definitely recommend this kit. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by vhfvhf
Very prolific, this kit provides enough basil for fresh dressings, mozzarella & basil & olive oil salads with plenty to make pesto. Pesto stores well in the freezer. This is an Italian food lovers dream. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Goofball
Love that Genovese Basil? Love Pesto? Love productive herbs? Well this is the kit for you! I very quickly became a fresh basil addict and this kit delivers. I have enough frozen pesto already to carry me through the year so I can try another kit. My only regret is that the International Basil kit is not available in 6-pod configuration. I would have liked the variety for recipes. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Toni the Chef
We've grown other herbs and lettuce successfully.This is the first time we didn't have a pod sprout.[...] Basil is great, but the price is high for one not to sprout. [...] (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Greenhorn gardener
I have never before been able to keep basil going all winter in Fairbanks, Alaska---until now, that is. This product has supplied us with excellent basil over a long period of time, with little care required. Compared to the amount I used to spend all winter on basil from the grocery store, much of it substandard, this is well worth the price. It also provides a bit of extra light during our dark winter months. (Posted over a month ago)

I wanted Basil and I got it! This is perfect, just what I expected. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Susan R
When the seed pack arrived, all of the pods were laying on their sides and some of the growing medium had spilled into the tray they were shipped in. These fiber crumbs must have included some of the seeds since three pods failed to germinate. I prefer the old growing medium that is like a foam anchor for the seeds. Customer Service sent three replacement pods when called, so I am waiting for these to catch up with the established basil plants. This is my first even mild disappointment with any of the Aerogrow products I have used, and would still recommend the company and its products to friends. (Posted over a month ago)
Review by rach
I waited forever for this product! I wanted a basil only kit. Other herbs are pretty reasonably priced, and I never use that much, but if you're making pesto or sauce, you might need 1 c of packed leaves, which is like 3 packages at [$] each! So far, I love it! (Posted over a month ago)
Review by Just me
I live in a very warm and humit climate and sometimes it's not easy to grow herbs. Now I can enjoy healthy and very flavorful basil anytime regardless of weather conditions. I am glad I bought this kit. (Posted over a month ago)

Review by Nancy
Fresh organic herbs? It doesn't get any better than this. All in my kitchen and right at my fingertips. I'm nearing the end of my second Gourmet Herb Kit and asking for another AeroGarden for Christmas. I want salad greens and tomatoes and flowers. Too bad Christmas only comes once a year!
