AeroGarden uses state-of-the-art, NASA-proven aeroponic technology to create fresh produce all-year round, indoors, in a dirt-free environment. The appliance uses smart technology to automatically adjust water and nutrient levels to ensure gardening success for even the least accomplished of gardeners.
It has sold well in the US, where a sign of its popularity was seen when an AeroGarden was featured in Will Smith’s kitchen in the movie I Am Legend.
People looking for a convenient and easy way to grow fresh produce in their own home are delighted by AeroGarden’s looks, simplicity – and effectiveness.
Aeroponic technology means the plant roots are suspended in air within a 100% humidity, highly oxygenated growing chamber and bathed in ideal levels of nutrients, water and oxygen. This allows AeroGarden plants to grow significantly faster, healthier and with a higher nutrient content than plants grown in soil. In fact, all AeroGarden plants are guaranteed 100% germination success in just 28 days.
Computerised ‘smart’ garden technology automatically adjusts nutrient delivery and water flow for specific plant types for faster, healthier growth. It also turns the grow lights on and off to remind consumers when to add water and nutrients.
The AeroGarden is easy-to-use and extremely low-maintenance. Anyone can grow a lush, beautiful garden right in their own home with no green thumb required.
There are eight different seed varieties now available including Gourmet Herbs (which comes with the AeroGarden unit), International Basil, Italian Herbs, Salad Greens, Cherry Tomatoes, Chili Peppers and Cascading Petunias.
There is also a Master Gardner Kit which allows gardeners to propagate and multiply existing plants from their garden, using AeroGarden.
