Power Outage Reset

July 1st, 2011

Aerogarden UK has received numerous questions concerning a reset of the garden if a power outage occurs. Sometimes, when that happens the Aerogarden needs to be reset, because the lights on the control panel do not light up. This might happen to a brand new indoor garden, or to your 2 year old garden. The power outage can affect any electrical appliance for that matter. You should not worry about this. Here is what you have to do if your panel does not light up after a power outage, or you are worried that something else might have gone wrong when that occurred.

Choose a selection of plants, except the following – advanced features, strawberries or live plants. When you have selected a plant mode press the button and hold it for a few seconds. When the lights star circling around you can release the button. The grow lights will also turn off and on when you do that. When you release the button, immediately press and then quickly release the “Reset” button. It is very important not to hold that button. This should reset the system. If the reset is done correctly, your plant selection will turn back to “Tomatoes/Peppers” and you will see the “Add Nutrient” light flash.

If you experience any difficulties in the reset or you have any other questions about your garden, contact Aerogarden UK and we will give you further instructions.

Instructions for Using Liquid Nutrients

August 3rd, 2010

Aerogarden Liquid Nutrients Sachets for Seed KitsEarlier this year the nutrients for all aerogarden seed kits was changed to liquid nutrients in sachets.
They replaced the old tablet nutrients that often got damaged.  Liquid nutrients last longer and are easier to store – and do not have the problem of dissolving in heat.
But they come in different sizes, and some people have come to us a little confused when adding them in and don’t know which sachets to use.
The nutriens come in 8ml and 5.5ml sachets.
Herb and salad seed kits include just the 8ml sachets, and you should use one sachet per feeding (every two weeks).
For chillies, tomatoes and flowering seed kits, both 5.5ml and 8ml sachets are included. Use all one 8ml sachet per feeding at start up, every two weeks until all the 8ml sachets are finished.
After all the 8ml packets are used it’s time to move on to 5,5 ml packets,
as the plants grow bigger and they need that little bit of extra food. Use two 5.5ml packets at each feeding for the rest of the seed kits life.
We recommend pouring the nutrients to a glass of water first, stir them and then pour the whole glass in.

Just don’t forget to shake well, before opening the sachet.
