My 12 year old granddaughter recently adopted a bunny, every time we go visit I am able to bring her freshly harvested herbs to feed her 'Dixie' bunny. The rabbit loves them and Grandma's scored a few extra points with the grandkids!

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I've grown several "crops" with no problems; this time I ordered directly from AeroGarden (online) and it seems like the products I was sent were out dated.

Thank you for your product review regarding our AeroGarden’s seed kits. Our 100% germination guarantee means that all pods in our Seed Kits are guaranteed to germinate. If one of your Seed Pods did not sprout within the time listed on the Seed Pod label, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-476-9669 and one of our agents will be glad to order you a replacement pod.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

Aerogarden is a fantastic product but I must say that The Herb Chef Pack stands on its own merits. It produces some of the best tasting herbs a cook can ever hope for. I was impressed with the product when I first received it and I was happy to be the 1st person in my circle to use the product with great success. My friends and family love the taste of the food with the fresh herbs in the mix taking my cooking to a whole new level of taste and presentation. My Aerogarden is displayed in my dinning room for all to see and talk about. I tell my friends and family to seek their own Aerogarden because they are always taking from my supply. The Herb Chef Pack is a product that I don't want to do without ever again. There is nothing better then healthy eating and Aerogarden can surely get you there. Enjoy Good Cooking.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

This is my second time trying to grow. the first I had the starter kit and non of them worked - but this time with this kit I am so impressed!!!! I've been growing for 6 weeks and already harvesting some of the herbs. I'm using 3 of the basil's this time and all 3 are huge and fast growing. The parsely is still having trouble and barely started growing. All others are doing very well. My kitchen smells wonderful and the plants are so fragrant and the herbs taste wonderful - much better than dried herbs or the fresh from the grocery store. I have a very small kitchen and I just popped this on top of my small microwave and it doesnt take up to much room. Peerfect for small kitchens.

Great Variety, Basil Rules

Bottom Line:

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

Great variety in this kit, but the basil, especially the lemon basil grows super fast and overpowers the other seeds. But I have a years supply of basil in my freezer! But this kit is a good value for someone who has more than one Aeorgarden.

Germination Problem
By Mary JVerified Purchaser from Northern Minnesota on 1/5/2009
Describe Yourself:
Avid Cook

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I really enjoy seeing things grow and received the aero garden as a gift a while back. I use it in the winter mainly so we can cook with fresh herbs. Most recently I purchased the Chef Pack but of the seven pods I started, two didn't germinate (oregano & sage). The basil, dill, parsley, mint and thyme are doing well and I am harvesting small amounts. I feel this is fairly expensive produce which I am willing to pay for a good result. For now I am a bit disappointed.

AeroGrow Response: We guarantee germination on all of our seed kits. Please contact us at customerservice@aerogrow.com and we’ll be glad to send you a new seed pod(s).

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

This is my second round of growing my own herbs. I had always seen ingredients for fresh herbs, but living in a very small town, I rarely ever had the chance to use them. Buying them in our small grocery store was never an option. Thank you for making my recipes take on a whole new nuance!

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I love basil and the plants last a LONG time and taste great. In addition to use with eggs in the am and veggies in the pm, this herb pack is useful for beverages when you have guests. Add crushed mint or basil to lime water with fresh ginger slices and this is so good. Alcoholic beverages to use are vodka or rum.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I must confess that I was very skeptical whether or not the Aerogrow with the Herb kit would work; herbs grown in water?! (I received it as a Christmas gift.) Well, I have been pleasantly surprised; the herbs have been growing now for six months. I have used them in the many tomato products that we have canned including tomato sauce and spaghetti sauce. An added bonus continues to be the beauty of the Aerogrow system as it continues to grow the herbs as it sits on a table in my dining/den. It also continues to be a conversation piece with all visitors. ...I am suggesting that my daughter-in-law and son give me another one this Christmas.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

This product is great because it has so many options. We have been able to mix and match it with some of out other kits and have something that can replace immediately if a pod doesn't sprout. The only problem is that one or two of the replacements didn't sprout either, but as always customer service is awesome at replacing any part or whole that goes wrong.

AeroGrow Response: We guarantee germination on all of our seed kits/pods. Just give us a call and we'll be happy to send you replacements.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I love the variety and the flexibility of the Herb Chef Pack. There are so many different herbs and so many things you can do, it is wonderful. The only downfall I can see is that the basils grow so fast while some things, like the sage, are slow to sprout. So, it's hard not to worry about the slow growers when the other plants are taking off!

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

In Michigan, we have very long, very cold winters during which we cannot grow the fresh herbs I love so much. The AeroGarden made it summer in my kitchen even when the snow was piling up outside. The herbs grow full and quickly and added fabulous fresh flavor to my food all winter long!

I learned very quickly the importance of following growing directions. We have well water which I used, at first. When the herbs grew, but only slowly, I switched to distilled water and they took off! I harvested for 7 months (I planted before Christmas las year) until my summer herb garden was ready to harvest. Although I still had herbs left in my AeroGarden, I replanted it with the Cascading Petunias and now my kitchen is filled with glorious flowers.

My only comment is that none of the herb seed kits contain the combination of herbs that I use most often: parsley (I'd prefer flat leaf parsley to the curley parsley included in the pack), sage, rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano, chives, and possibly dill. Now my true confession. I know the directions recommend NOT mixing herbs from different seed kits together in the same AeroGarden because the nutrients may differ, but because these are the herbs I use most often, I mixed herbs from two different seed kits to come up with combination I wanted. They all grew together beautifully! Unfortunately, it meant paying for two different herb seed kits to get the combination I desire. Maybe you could consider allowing us to order custom seed kits?

AeroGrow Response: In this case we would recommend the Master Gardner Kits. They allow you to plant and experiment with your own seeds.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I love having the option of selecting the herbs that I want to grow out of this variety pack. It's a great price for two seasons of herbs, with lots of versatility and choices. The herbs do grow quickly, and you have to stay on top of it with frequent harvests, but it is worth it. I dry the excess on a pan in the oven on low heat, then package them for later use. Nothing is more impressive than having guests help you harvest herbs for their salads. Our family and friends are fascinated by the gardens, and being able to touch the herbs themselves. And the taste is exceptional. There's simply no comparison between this or a store bought herb. My son is a fine dining chef and adores the herb gardens (a future Christmas gift). Give one to mom's on Mother's Day, or a birthday. They make great gifts.

Comments about AeroGrow Herb Chef Pack (7-Pod x2):

I am 6 weeks into my second Aerogarden herb season. It is so enjoyable to me to be able to snip fresh herbs to add to my recipes. I just recently received the Herb n Serve and Aerogarden recipe books. I find myself experimenting with herb butters and salad dressings. This encourages me to eat more fresh salads.
On the con side- my first season the cilantro never even sprouted. This season, the savory is growing poorly. The genovese basil only had one seed to sprout, although it still is a heavy producer.
