What grows best in AeroGarden?

Lavender, petunia, and snapdragons are all available in seed pod kits. If you want to grow another species of flower grab a Grow Anything kit and plant away. The only flowers that won't work in the Aerogarden are those that grow especially tall like sunflowers, or those that grow in large bushes, like roses.

How do you replant AeroGarden pods?

Fill the pot about 3/4 full of potting soil, and dig a deep hole right in the middle. Carefully and slowly pull out a pod from the Aerogarden unit, starting with the smallest plant. The roots at this point will be very long and possibly intertwined with others.

Does AeroGarden save money?

The AeroGarden Harvest is a fun herb garden that anyone can appreciate — it's easy to use and being able to say you grew the herbs that you're eating is cool.

Can you grow fruit in an AeroGarden?

Unfortunately, not all plants are suitable for growing in the AeroGarden! Many small berries and fruits grow on large trees or shrubs that would not fit in an AeroGarden, and of course root crops, such as potatoes, onions and carrots, also will not fit in an AeroGarden.

Does AeroGarden pump run all the time?

Your pump has a normal "off" cycle, meaning that it is not programmed to be "on" all the time for most plant selections. On many AeroGarden 7 models, the pump runs continuously only when the plant selection is set to Salad/Lettuce. If you hear the pump activate, then your pump is working and was just in an "off" cycle.

Can you repot AeroGarden plants?

Yes, you can transplant your AeroGarden plants outside! But before transplanting, seedlings need to be hardened off. Remove the Bowl with seedlings from the Base and place it outside in a shady location for a few hours each day, gradually increasing to 24 hours outside. This should take about a week.

Can you transfer AeroGarden plants to soil?

As the plants grow larger, they can be removed from the AeroGarden and transplanted into containers. Leaving the plastic growing basket intact around the roots increases success with transplanting and won't affect plant growth. Attempting to remove the basket may damage the root system and kill the plant.
