Aerogarden Receives Glowing Review!

March 23rd, 2010

The Aerogarden has received a fantastic rating in America’s number one ‘Gardening How-To’ magazine.  The magazine conducted a survey of close to 10o of their readers, where they tried out a whole host of gardening tools and accessories throughout March and April.

The magazine is one of America’s most read gardening magazines and currently has a following of over 600,000 readers.  This is obviously something that has delighted us at Aerogarden, even though it may not benefit us in the UK, it’s nice to see the Aerogarden getting the credit it deserves.   The magazine get’s the ratings for the products by taking a random sample of it’s readers, making sure there is no chance of bias towards certain products.

It’s particularly encouraging that Aerogarden is getting respected in the gardening world, as it lets a lot of people who may not have the time or space to grow their own fruit and veg in gardens still enjoy the process of cultivating their own plants!  It really is good to see the Aerogarden being rated by many who would consider themselves gardening purists.  The Aerogarden scored a fantastic 9.2 average rating, and scored over 9 in the Design, Quality, and ease of use categories, really showing how great it is for people to make a start in the gardening world with.

Gardening How To magazine is part of the National Home Gardening Club.

If you have your own review of the Aerogarden to share we’d love to hear from you, especially if you’re someone who is fairly new to growing your own plants.  It’s always nice to hear how someone first got on with our product.

Cilantro (coriander) in the Aerogarden Gourmet Herb kit

March 18th, 2010

We have had some customers come to us over the past 6 months or so who have purchased a Gourmet Herb seed kit and been disappointed (or pleasantly surprised) to find that the kit didn’t come with a cilantro (coriander) seed pod as they might have expected.

This subject has been due a blog post for a while so we apologise for the tardiness of posting it, but just to clarify, the seed pod in the Gourmet herb kit which used to be cilantro has now been replaced by thyme. The cilantro had a slightly lower rate of germination than the other seeds in the kit, and has been changed to Thyme in order to make it possible for us to continue to honour our germination guarantee on all Aerogarden seed kits.

So our apologies to those whom this change has disappointed. If you do still have your heart set on growing coriander in the Aerogarden, then we recommend that you purchase some coriander seeds from your local garden centre, and plant them in the Aerogarden using the master gardener seed kit, which allows you to grow your own seeds of any practically any variety.
