Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty…tasty! I like fresh herbs for pasta, salads, and now, drinks. I had been spending $3 plus each time that I wanted to use "fresh" herbs in something that I was cooking. Of course those are "freshly" cut herbs and don't hold up well on the counter or in the refrigerator. I also tried buying potted herb plants but I generally had to keep those outdoors where the plants were subject to bugs and limited to warm seasons (Chicago tends to have REAL winters.) I've wanted an AeroGarden for a long time but being on a limited fixed income I was hesitant to spend the money. Finally, in December 2017 I went ahead and bought an Aerogarden Harvest Elite. The lamp section can only be raised 12 inches but I figured that was perfect as the AeroGarden fits on my kitchen counter just under the cabinets, I chose the herb assortment and "planted" Thai and Genovese basil, mint, curley parsley, and thyme. AeroGarden suggests that pruning your growing herbs/plants is recommended to get the best harvest. It took some 30-40 days for my AeroGarden to get "overrun" with herbs that needed to be pruned daily as the growth. Now, I have to figure out how fast and how much I can eat of all the herbs. To that end I've begun making vodka gimlets with basil and mint. Tasty…tasty! I can now understand how people would like to have more than one AeroGarden. If I were to buy another, I would get one that allows for a 24 inch elevation of the grow-light. That's because the herbs grow "like crazy." I often think about the inventor of AeroGarden and what he or she went though considering all the details that needed to be incorporated. I'm going to buy more seed pods but I may plant only 4 rather than the 6 that can be accommodated. That's to allow me more room to harvest the herbs. My personal favorites include: basil, dill, and mint but there are quite a few others I would like to try including arugula, cilantro, Italian parsley, and some peppers. Looks like I may need to buy another AeroGarden soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my indoor gardens! I have two aero gardens and ordered one as a gift for my daughter. We love love love them. I have lettuce growing like crazy and my cherry tomatoes are doing well, too. It's so nice to have some fresh veggies in the winter time. I'll use the gardens to do my starter plants in the spring for flowers and veggies to plant outdoors. I may have to get a third garden in the fall!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent as a starter garden This product is a great gateway into hydroponic gardening. Alas, more advanced users will quickly find that the ports are not large enough, pods don’t lend themselves well to transplantation, and the water tank is not deep enough for root systems. Additionally, roots tend to get tangled up with each other and they easily clog up the filter. A few recommendations to miracle grow on their next incarnation of the product - deeper tanks, larger ports, separate chambers for each plant/port. Features that would be greatly appreciated to a hydroponic gardener - built in PH monitoring, pods that can be transplanted easier, cleaning system that does not require disturbing the roots - possibly some way of flushing the reservoir while filling the reservoir without removing the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to start herbs and veggies My AG was a Christmas gift & I do absolutely love it. Once the herbs grew in I really enjoyed them for several months. I encountered a couple issues with algae growing and infecting the entire basin, but after doing a thorough rinse and wiping everything including the seed pods with peroxide it subsided.TIP- KEEP the little paper circles covering the seeds until your plant is too big, then cut the circles in half and let them hug your plant stems over the holes to prevent more algae growth due to light reaching the seed pods. Use q-tips and peroxide to dab the top of the pods to prevent algae growth. At first the plants were hearty and the basil leaves were HUGE and aromatic! I had to trim them constantly to keep them from touching the light at the highest setting. I noticed over time the leaves started to get smaller and the leaves of my Genovese basil were starting to mutate and grow kind of gnarled. I had to refill water almost daily and the pump seemed to be making more noise than usual. After lifting the top I realized the roots from my 3 plants were completely entwined and had taken up the entire basin. They were growing into the pump and up through the spouts. I'm a gardening noob so I didn't even consider this as a possibility, and I hadn't seen anything about root trimming in the directions. I can't imagine what the roots would have looked like if I had all 6 plants growing like they do in the photos. I had tried potting my mint in soil without removing the plastic pod holder and now the leaves are dwarfed. For the basils and parsley I ended up doing a major root trim, used garden shears to cut out the entire plastic pod holders, and replanted my herbs into soil pots. I was worried they wouldn't survive but after a week they're starting to bounce back! So keep in mind, if you want to keep your plants in the Aerogarden long term, you need to trim the roots regularly, its best to trim no more than 20% of the plant at any given time. Otherwise, the Aerogarden is really great to use to start plants and then repot them before their roots get too tangled in each other or too hard to remove the plastic. Can't wait to get more started!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fool proof way to start an herb garden I do not have a green thumb. I have a tendency to kill any plant by overwatering, underwatering, too much sun, not enough sun... you name it, I will probably kill it. But I love having fresh herbs and I want to have a proper herb garden where I can grab some basil thyme or from the garden while I'm cooking. This system is fool proof. It gives the herbs the proper amount of light. It tells you when to add water or plant food. After 2 weeks, all of my herbs are growing and looking healthy. I look forward to transporting them into my garden when they get too big for the aerogarden. The only negative is that the light is BRIGHT. Too bright for keeping in my kitchen so I keep it in my laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colors I have three smaller (3 pod) AeroGardens. I bought one 6 pod Harvest Elite and liked it so much I bought a second one. Now I'm not even using my 3 pod gardens. I've had incredible success with salad greens, beet greens, rosemary and dill. My salad greens and beet greens (they're really red) grow so big I usually can't keep 6 plants growing at one time. I almost never have to buy romaine or salad greens at the grocery store and am often giving away my produce. The lights so help brighten up dull Cleveland winters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to set up and quality product!! I've always wanted one of these Aerogardens and so happy I finally got this! It was extremely easy to set it up and it doesn't take long at all. There is hardly any up keep to this Aerogarden. It digitally tells you when to refill with water, the time, how many days it's been harvesting and when to add more liquid plant food! I'm amazed how easy this is to grow and how fast it's already blooming in just a few days. You can grow fresh herbs, flowers and veggies in this. It doesn't take up a lot of space and it's made durable to last. It's definitely a quality product and worth the investment. If you don't have Alton of time on your hands but want to grow these things then this is most definitely for you! You do not have to be electronic smart to work this it took me a few minutes and it was working. I highly recommend this Aerogarden so so simple and harvests fast! Can't wait for my herbs to harvest then on to fresh flowers!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Moldy herbs I bought this to replace an old Aero Garden. I’ve had great success for the most part when using my older unit, with the exception of a few pods not sprouting. I followed directions and was excited for my future new crops. I had a few that sprouted right away, but noticed one had mold on top of the surface of the soil. I replaced it right away with an extra pod. All of my pods sprouted and ALL with MOLD. it is affecting the taste of all the herbs I planted. I’m ready to call it quits. Not worth the hassle any longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up and looks great! I got this a while back and at first I was a little skeptical, but that went away very quickly. It comes with everything you need to get started(even herb seeds). The light timer is amazing, I dont have to do much with it and my family can enjoy fresh herbs anytime anyone cooks, we just pick them off right there in the kitchen. The look is classy and it is a very great addition to our culinary lives, perfect fit for anyone that enjoys cooking with fresh herbs! I would recommend this product over and over!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great intro garden. I've had 5 AeroGardens, and bought one for my daughter, too. I only have two now. The Harvest Elite is adequate, but seems lightweight compared to my most recent purchase, the Ultra. I like the long-life, low-power-consumption LED system. The lights are easy to raise and lower in the Elite, and the access plate is large enough so water and nutrient adding is easy. The top cover doesn't seen to hold the plastic pod inserts very tightly. They sometimes slip and tilt, which never happens with the Ultra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Birthday present ever! My boyfriend bought me this for my birthday and I absolutely love it! Tonight we had our second salad even though I've been using the lettuce in sandwiches and stuff too. My basil is growing nicely in fact I'm hoping within another week or so I'll have enough for pesto it smells so good I can't wait! This AeroGarden is wonderful I planted in the past where I've had potting soil and miss and need the fun and this is so easy and clean! Plus it's fun! I cook a lot and my boyfriend so how much I loved the Harvest Elite that he bought me a bounty Elite which is on its way and I can't wait because they're I'm growing some taller stuff and tomatoes! Anyway I can't say good enough things about it I love my AeroGarden thank you AeroGarden for making gardening so effortless and enjoyable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this I am so impressed it is so easy to setup and use just a few touches to set the clock and select what I am growing. The system keeps up with everything, it waters your plants automatically and turns the brow lights on and off after they have had exactly enough light. Did I mention you can select what time you prefer the lights to start. Its great I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fresh lettuce! This was a Christmas present and I am enjoying it! Currently in day 27 of salad greens. Have made 6 salads so far with plenty of greens for tonight. They also tasty, although “softer” than grocery store purchased. So easy - the unit tells you to water, feed, programs the lights. Next will be herbs. I’ll probably have 2 or 3 of these before long...!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new Elite features! I bought two this month and my garden is growing so fast. One started on the 5th along with the sprouted for tomatoes and one just two days ago. The elite reminds you when to refill water and food and the display even has a countdown of how many days left. It is a better system running the water pump every 25 minutes for 5 minutes and so quiet. The new features are plentiful. I was an owner of the tower garden and loved it but it’s too big for one person and heavy to handle with a twenty gallon tank. So I’m hoping to get as much use out of these and it looks like I will!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love aerogardens This aerogarden really works. I know the pictures on the packaging seem to good to be true, but really, with some dedication and a little knowhow (watch a few youtube videos) you can be well on your way to grow the best fresh herbs for cooking! Or whatever it is you are interested in growing. It is very important to learn how to prune and harvest your plants. Really do pay attention to the instructions and tips, you will get a high yield. I've been freezing pesto for months!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So much smaller This is my third Aerogarden that I have purchased. I both love and hate that this one is so much smaller than my old model. I love that it takes up less room and that the plants seem to fill it better but I hate the small opening to adding water and the hood does not go up anywhere near far enough. I wish I had bought a larger model like I was accustom to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I'm in love with my Harvest Elite with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit. Not only is it compact but I love how easy it is to set up and " forget" . All you do is follow the easy steps and you are set until you need to add more water but that's not until a week or so later which is amazing for those of us with no green thumb. I can't wait to plant other things like strawberries no need to wait until summer no more . Would make a perfect gift for anyone .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely easy I once killed an aloe plant. Yep, I killed a succulent that hardly needs any attention. I kinda kill all plants.... I was still super excited to receive a Harvest Elite with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit. 1. EASY to set up. 2. EASY to plant. 3. SUPER EASY TO GROW! And my herbs are still alive. I love the fresh herb assortment available on my kitchen counter. I give this product all the stars. I received free product for my review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh herbs and veggies Love our AeroGarden Harvest Elite... After multiple battles with outdoor critters, we were ultimately defeated and figured we'd try an indoor garden... For those like myself, who may not have natural light, but are looking to grow their own herbs and veggies... This is definitely the solution..Took a little longer than expected to start growing but so far its doing good...This set also comes with 6 herbs to get you started..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AeroGarden Harvest Elite-recommend Attracted to AeroGarden Harvest Elite after receiving their catalog. Set it up a week ago and after four days, tomato seeds started to sprout which is shorter than what is labeled on seed pods. Device is attractive and fairly easy to set up. This model has automatic timer feature which works perfect and is definitely a plus. Overall, I am very satisfied. Can’t wait to see tomato plants grow up and produce cherry tomatoes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright! A little too bright. Good: things grow! It works! Much wow! Really looking forward to having herbs within snipping distance in the kitchen. Less than good: The grow light is so bright that we had to stash the whole contraption in a corner. And cover it with a couple of towels when we're trying to watch movies. We opted for an herb pack, which means that the pods need 17 hours of light, so the time without light is quite short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So neat This is one of the neatest things! I now am able to have fresh herbs all year round right from my kitchen. I’ve tried in the past before to grow herbs over the winter time in my home but was never successful. I guess I just don’t have the green thumb that I thought I had. However, with AeroGarden I am now successful at growing all year round. It’s almost fool proof. They grow so nice and taste great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this to grow herbs and gave it to my husband for Christmas. Couldn't be happier. I love the screen that tells when to add nutrients, when seeds were planted, etc. We even lost power and the time had to be reset but the days seemed to be fine. Of course we only lost power for a few hours so I don't know what would happen if it was for a day or two in terms of the day counts. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This AeroGarden - Harvest Elite with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit is amazing. I can grow herbs and vegetables inside with no mess. Everything is included in this set-the LED grow lights which automatically turn on and off,6 soil-free seed pods and will remind me to add water and plant food since I would forget. I would recommend for anyone who wants inside gardening convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I am NOT a green thumb person. I have NEVER been able to keep basil alive. I know, people have told me that they grow it like weeds. Doesn't work for me. This solved it! The pre-seeded kits are a little expensive, but they sell just the inserts that you can put your own seeds in. I have a heirloom seed pack and will be growing those after the first batch is done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Garden! I bought this about two months ago. It has only been about 2 weeks since I started the seeds and my lettuce is growing like crazy! Shipping was also pretty rapid. The only downside is that the light is really bright, so you might want to put it somewhere like the basement, or cover it up a bit as I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Unfortunately, 4 of the spice pods did not take root it has been more than 21 days. I pulled them out and saw that there was no root growing. I have been using one of your older models for about 4years. It worked very well. I have recently bought 2 new smaller units, so needless to say I have had years of experience using your products.
