AeroGarden Harvest with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit Review
The AeroGarden Harvest with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit is a great example of what later generations of a good product can look like. Not only is this indoor garden larger compared to the Sprout version, it’s also better compared to older models in terms of light, height, and production. To learn more about this neat kitchen garden, keep reading the review below, and see how you can harvest fresh herbs for whatever you’re cooking, or pick your own salad greens – even in winter.
What is the AeroGarden Harvest, Anyway?
In fact, you don’t even really have to remember when to water your plants. Everything grows in water to begin with, so all you have to do is refill the reservoir once in a while, and there are reminders for that. So, as you’re walking by your AeroGarden Harvest, just take a look at the control panel to see if the “Add Water” LCD display is illuminated. Then add water.
It isn’t totally hands-off gardening. You’ll have to set a timer for the lights, but after that, you won’t have much to do. The timer turns the lights on and off based on the schedule you set for it. You don’t even have to plant anything, really. Just take pods and place them in the holders, set them in the holes, and that’s pretty much it. After a few weeks, you’ll be ready to harvest your herbs, vegetables, or whatever else you decide to grow.
Using the AeroGarden Harvest, you can grow (almost) anything indoors, and you won’t even have to adjust the temperature of your home or the room your indoor garden resides. The LED lights take care of all of that. If anything, you may need to adjust the height of the lights so that tall plants aren’t touching the top.
You can grow fresh herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, flowers, and even strawberries, with a few extra accessories and attention. The only things that aren’t possible are larger crops, such as zucchini, melons, and the like.

Features & Benefits
Six Pod Slots
It’s also a good number of pod slots for growing a salad garden. You could plant three different types of lettuce alongside three different grape or cherry tomato varieties. Save two slots for dill and parsley and then make your own ranch dressing using fresh herbs. You’re not likely going to have to twist any arms to get your family to eat their greens when the food is this fresh and tasty.
You also won’t have to worry about having to transplant any of the seedlings because everything sprouts and grows in the same spot. Of course, if you have a garden outside, you can certainly sprout everything in your AeroGarden Harvest and then move it all to your backyard.
The 20-watt LED lighting system has red, white, and blue clusters of bulbs. Each color has a different job. The red lights ensure more blooms and more fruit, while the white bulbs mimic sunlight and help the plants grow quickly. The blue LEDs help your plants grow bigger, which means you get more product when it’s time to harvest.
It’s also beneficial to your electric bill. An AeroGarden Harvest doesn’t draw too much electricity to light those LEDs. It’s like running a small appliance in your kitchen.
You don’t even have to think about making sure your plants get the light they need. The LEDs operate on a timer. After setting the schedule once, you never have to think about it again. At least, you won’t have to think about it again until you plant something new, or if your power goes out at some point. In that case, you’ll have to reset the timer and schedule.
