Accessorize Your Garden

December 7th, 2011

If you are a proud owner of a Herb Garden by the end of this year is the perfect time to check if your garden needs an upgrade or any accessories.

Anyone who already has an Aerogarden knows by now that this little thing pretty much does everything by itself. Many times you forget to even check how everything in the garden is working, because all you see is perfectly growing plants, you can smell the fresh aroma of the herbs and enjoy beautiful flowers. But every garden needs to be cleaned and sanitized regularly. It is now the end of this year and the perfect time to check how your garden is doing – clean it up, and see if its components work well. You have to check how your water pump is functioning, because it can become less effective with time and you might need to replace it. A little advice from us, if you want to keep your pump in good condition longer make sure to clean it after each planting. Another thing you might want to take a look at is the grow lamps. These must be replaced every six months in order to maintain best efficiency. Start the new year fresh and take the time to clean, sanitize, rearrange and accessorize your garden.

The best Herb Garden is the one that is maintained regularly so do this now and order all your accessories today.

How to Get a Bigger Harvest

August 15th, 2011

When you are growing with Aerogarden there are a few things you should know so that you get a bigger harvest. We have already talked about how to clean up your garden, so you get enough light and air for all the plants. This is very important, because all plants need enough growing light, especially ones grown indoors. The other thing is pollinating. We can share a little trick with you when it comes to pollinating. First of all you have to research whether the plants you grow are self pollinating or not. Here is an easy trick – get an electric toothbrush and turn it on. You can gently touch each open flower with it. The buzzing and the motion from the toothbrush resembles that of a bee, the pollen is being dispersed and pollination occurs. We say open flowers, because that is when plants are ready to be pollinated, when their flowers open up. You have to make sure you do that every day when there are open flowers. If you fail to pollinate a flower, it will just come off. If that happens clean up the fallen flowers off the bottom of the garden. Tomatoes and pepper plants flower between 4 and 6 weeks. If you are growing those beware of that time line. If you do not have an electric toothbrush you can simply shake each plant a little.

Soon you will enjoy a rich a delicious harvest with your Aerogarden!
