Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

My family loves the Aerogarden, and I think this basil kit might be the best. My husband and I love to cook, and my father is also a pro in the kitchen. With all the basil this kit has produced, we have kept him stocked as well as drying and using as much as we can on our own. Having different varieties of basil has helped me to seek out new recipes and many kinds of dishes I never would have thought to use basil in before! Our whole apartment smells awesome when I do a little harvesting as well. We did have a couple plants already die off while the others are still going strong. I think one of our cats had something to do with that though!

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

The texture and color of the plants make them attractive, although mine don't look like the picture yet - they've only been growing a few weeks. They do, however taste great already - I harvested the first leaves yesterday. And taste is the most important factor, so I'm very pleased with the Basil.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

This is a great kit. We grow basil for all our cooking since it adds flavor to everything. This is a great combination of basil. We started trimming 4 weeks in and the basil keeps coming:) When you need to trim for height, just chop up the basil and put it in ice cube trays with a bit of water, freeze and store the cubes in a baggie in the freezer, the basil works great in any dish and is pre-measured in 1 tbsp amounts for easy adding.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

It's hard to get more productive than basil and seven different varieties not only makes for a spectacular pesto, but allows flavor variations for all your cooking style. Basil truly is the King of Herbs and this kit shows you why. The last of these kits I ordered would not die. It grew and produced for more than double the listed life expectancy. If I had to give one piece of constrictive criticism; Aerogrow ought to add more nutrients. It grows waaay longer than 4 months.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

This is my 2nd one and within 3 days they all sprouted. The last batch had a 7 month harvest period. Simply wonderful and easy to grow.The only problem is that the plants suck up the water faster than the 2 week reminder thinks. I have to add water every 5-6 days. I use the 2 week reminder as an indicator to add the nutrients only.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I used to get the variety pack of herbs, and I found that I just wasn't using many of them. I always use the basil, so I decided to go with this all-basil kit. So far, I'm really pleased. The plants are growing so quickly and they look gorgeous. All the plants sprouted quickly except for one (it took a little longer, but it came out eventually) and the basil leaves are huge and great looking. Love this kit!

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

my basil is mostly flourishing now, but it took a bit of tweaking, since a couple of the varieties were producing some yellow leaves that then turned brown. I found that by replacing the tap water with bottled drinking water, I've been mostly able to overcome my early problems. Next, I'm going to replace my old light bulbs and see if this boosts the plants' growth.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

This set is great. I love tasting all the varieties of basil. It seemed like it grew to maturity very quickly and some of it grows about a half-inch a day, so you really have to keep pinching it back. Having to change out the water every four weeks is a pain, but worth it. On my last herb garden, when the basil reached the end of it's growing cycle inside I planted it outside in the ground and it flourished. I got another several months out of it. I highly recommend this set.

My last batch lasted more than 6 months, and I use it all the time - add to salads almost on a daily basis, plus have some to pop in the freezer to use in cooked dishes and soups. Saves $$ by not buying fresh in the store, and I can never seem to grow in the Seattle climate. So I LOVE the basil packets!

This Basil collection is the greatest! About 1 year ago, I planted and started harvesting basil - used it myself and supplied 2 other families with all they could use. After 8 months, the Thai and Globe basils were still going strong, but I wanted to grow something else, so I transplanted them. I keep their pots next to the AeroGarden and am STILL harvesting basil. Wonderful product.

Next spring I plan to get the seed starter kit to get a headstart on our iffy last frost date.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I had no idea that 6 months later I would still be harvesting basil. I am getting a bit tired of basil and my freezer is full of it. So I decided to become adventuroius and really prune down low. I did that 2 weeks ago, and now I am still pinching off large leaves for the freezer. I have tried to grow basil in my kitchen and outside for many years with no success. This seed kit has been totally amazing. I can (yes can, with the addtion of lemon juice to increase acidity) Marinara sauce at least once a month because we eat it so often. Store bought dried basil never gave me the intense flavor I was looking for. From my seven basil plants I now have at least 24 frozen leaf shapes from the Aerogrow freezing trays and about a dozen bags of frozen fresh basil leafs to last me for a year.
These plants are almost impossible to kill. Just make sure your nutrients are dry. I planted a second batch of other herbs in a new garden, I use but with very wet nutreinets, they did not grow at all, until Aerogrow relaced them with dry nutrients. They are now starting to thrive. If you love basil, this is the kit for you.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

The aerogrow garden has helped this brown thumb become green. It is easy to use and yields such a great amount that I still have clippings that taste great from months ago. As a college student, fresh produce is expensive; however, the AeroGarden allows me to indulge myself without busting my funds. I look forward to trying each kit, and getting a second garden for flowers as well as the kitchen!

So much basil, so little time to eat them all! That's because they grow so fast! My favorite is lemon. Chopped and sprinkled on fish is so good! Having these basils to eat fresh every day has spoiled me. Never again will I buy store bottles of basil.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

The most impressive thing about this seed kit is that seven months later, I am STILL harvesting amazing quantities of basil! In our kit, the lemon, Marseille, and Genovese have thrived the most, while the purple and globe have had the most trouble.

This is our third AeroGarden seed kit and we are incredibly happy with it--the only reason we will be retiring it before the plants are done is because I would like to get a "seed starter tray" in there for spring gardening!

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

What a great kit! I love the variety of basil. I had no idea that basils could be so unigue and yet still taste like basil! The Thai basil is absolutely fantastic. I have made a couple different Thai dishes for several years and have always used regular fresh basil. I had no idea what I was missing out on. Unfortunately now I am a little spoiled and will always want the Thai basil for those dishes. The other basils have all been fun to experiment with as well. My only complaint about the kit was that they recommend a rinse and refill every other time you add the nutrients. I am the mother of 3 kids and a Family Practice doctor. Although it is a rather simple step, it is more time consuming then I like and rather messy as the plants get larger. I have found however that just using one nutrient tab every two weeks instead of the two tabs, seems to keep the level of nutrient adequate and I can skip the rinse and refill step used to keep the nutrient level lower. I have still had excellent growth. In fact I have had more growth than I can use. Furthermore, I have had quite a bit of extended grow time without having to purchase extra nutrient tabs. As long as you keep the plants trimmed it seems they will just keep going! I really am very happy with this kit. It has been one of my favorites.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I gave this aerogrow and the basil to my sister, who has black thumbs -- she has killed every plant she's ever owned. Not only is the little aerogrow attractive, the basil is thriving! She can't wait for it to get big enough to use!

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

There is nothing that smells as good as freshly cut basil. It is a perfect kitchen potpouri not only for the air, but my hands smell heavenly for hours. Our sense of smell affects our sense of taste. Almost everything we cook gets a taste boost from adding basil. The best thing is that there are many health benefits from eating basil. How delightful to be able to harvest this herb as often as we want. We mix the varieties frequently, which provides interesting new flavors. For a city farmer, the ability to grow something right in my kitchen is one of the best of modern cooking innovations.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

Saw this advertised and wanted it, immediately! Have done the herbs and the basils and have more stacked up and ready to go that I can't wait to try. Tomatoes, not so much, but had to try them too. They tasted great, just too messy for me. We gave one to my mother-in-law last week and can't wait to hear what she says too when she starts getting her first cuttings.

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

The International Basil kit has by far been the best Aerogarden seed kit that ive used. The same simple setup as other kits, the Basil kit quickly became my favorite as I started the seemingly ENDLESS harvest.

6 of the 7 pods sprouted strong, healty plants with endless leaves to pluck and eat, only one seemed a little small and runtish, but I believe it was starved for light by the incredible growth around it. Even as a smaller plant, it was delicious.

It proved a constant pleasure for cooking, simply harvesting exactly what I needed, in many combinations as I prepared the food. Pruning and harvesting intelligently means an incredibly long lasting harvest potentially. I had more basil than I knew what to do with. Freezing it for later stocks, and making pesto till I couldn't eat any more. I am extremely pleased with it.

I just bought a replacement, i simply can't live without incredible basil, garden fresh, from aerogarden-to-pot simplicity.

Buying basil, is just not an acceptible substitute. The garden started in mid-winter, gave long into the summer.

Yum, these are all so good. The Lemon Basil is so fragrant and perfect for fish dishes. The French Basil has a slightly annisette like taste. The Thai Basil is somewhat peppery. The other basils are most like Italian basil but varying in strengths and textures and sizes. You will not be disappointed, it's a cooks dream collection!

Comments about AeroGrow International Basil Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I have grown several Aerogardens full of basil, some from the International Basil seed kit and some from my Master Gardener kit, and every time I come up a winner! As long as you keep pinching off the blooms, you can have basil nearly indefinitely. The plants are hardy high producers full of aromatic oil. I've made homemade pesto, pizza, soups, salads, vinegars, and dressings with my basil, and whatever I make with the basil is always a hit. If you try no other kit, try this one. You won't be sorry.

Nothing better than harvesting fresh herbs in your own kitchen - without the expense of buying them at the store! We use the basil in salads, on tomatoes, on chicken and fish - plus make basil oil for use on everything! I will never be without my aero garden again!

Terrific product, great variety and quick growing. As a matter of fact, it's hard to keep up with since there's so much growth. Learn how to make pesto and freeze it into cubes for later use so you don't waste the leaves. The aroma in the kitchen is amazing and the family loves it.
