Issue with kit

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I was very disappointed when 4 of our seed pods did not germinate. However, Aerogarden replaced them quickly and free of charge. Maybe a silver lining, as I'll have a longer harvest period. I will add more comments in the future when I start harvesting my herbs...assuming these new pods germinate.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

The AeroGarden is unquestionably a chef's major assets. Fresh herbs and spices are always readily at hand with no mess, no fuss and no trips to the farmer's market or grocery (where you are never assured of the availability of "fresh" products)! The convenience of having your garden in your kitchen along with the assurance of "freshness" is invaluable to the most experienced chef to the casual cook. I find I am inspired to be more creative and expand my cooking horizons with fresh herbs in reach. The proof is in the family and friends' compliments and accolades! I heavily endorse the AeroGarden for all reasons. In addition to the multiple herb gardens I've enjoyed over the years, occasionally I will order the beautiful flower products for a seasonal change of pace. The versatility of alternating the kitchen scenery is refreshing!

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I had issues with mold growth in my pods despite following cleaning procedures. I think spores came in on a pod and spread. I have no worries though every communication with the Aero support staff has been great and I feel comfortable that they will replace it. I had a chive not come up in my last purchase and they sent a replacement right out. How's that for service? I wish my garden center would do the same.

I just bought an Aerogarden system for my mom for Mother's Day. She lives in Las Vegas and the ability to have fresh herbs without remembering to water daily will be wonderful. Everything comes up tasty and fresh. What a great product!!

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

2 out of the 7 seed pods never grew. The good news is that Aerogarden replaces them free upon a request. At least that is what happened on a previous batch. Now, I am a bit tired of worrying for a replacement pod when the others are so ahead in growth.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

This was the second set of herbs that I've tried with my Aerogrow and I've been very happy. I love cillantro so I was worried when one plant didn't grow at all and the other grew poorly. However, the rest of the herbs were wonderful. I used all of them in my day to day cooking and I've gotten spoiled with the easy access to fresh herbs. I would happily try this one again but I'm going to give the cherry tomatoes a try. "There's just two things that money can't buy and that's true love and home grown tomatoes!" Happy cooking everyone.

I planted my herbs a week and a half ago, and they are growing fast! I keep an eye on them every day; excited for when I can start harvesting them. They look really healthy and they are extremely low maintenance. I filled it with water, added nutrients and that was it! I have it touched it in a week and a half. So far so good!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

Our utility room is the 1st room one enters from the garage. This is a great "nite lite".
I use a lot of herbs in cooking and salads. It is great being able to just snip off the amount I need as I need it. -a lot less messier that buying those big bunches at the grocery.

This selection is the only one that has had a pod that did not grow - all the others did.

Also, wish there was a dill versus that espazote.

I harvest herbs every day. I add to my salads, and cooked vegetables. All the delicate herbs add so much to my meals, and I am not a very inventive cook. But these herbs make my cooking "seem like" I am a gourmet cook. I am on my 4th seed kit, and I recommend AeroGrow to all of my friends.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

Having two cilantro seed pods is good if you do a lot of mexican and spanish dishes. Unfortunately, I was dissapointed that one of the pods only grew one plant, so it could be fuller. The oregano grows very slow compared to the rest of the plants, but I'm hoping it will be productive soon. The thyme and basil are awesome.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

Personally I love my Aerogarden! Wish there were more variety of seed kits. Have had some touble with the Cilantro but since it is my favorite I'd rather the kit include two cilantro and leave out the epazote. I have had great success with all the herb gardens purchased.

This kit was great! My only disappointment was that my Parsley was a no-show, but I didn't need it anyway. This would be the best kit, if only they could find a way to include a Tomatio plant and a Jalapeño plant instead of Epazote... Cheers!
BTW-- My Basil's still going strong after 10 months!

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

When I bought my Aerogarden Pro 100 it came with a Gourmet Herb kit that advertised cilantro, which is my favorite herb. But when I got the Aerogarden in the mail, it came with a note saying that the cilantro was being replaced with thyme.[...] I cleaned out one of the sponges and put my own cilantro seeds in there and they grew beautifully in the Aerogarden. Now I see that they are selling cilantro again. I wish I know why they claimed that the cilatro wouldn't germinate.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I love aerogrow. I thought it was kinda silly but then I got one as a gift and LOVE it. I make a lot of grilled fish with fruit salsas so I had to get the south of the border kit for all the cilantro. My only problem is my cats seem to like oregano so I had to put it up on a shelf and one day I noticed I can't see the "needs water" light from the shelf. I almost lost all my wonderful herbs.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I feel like I'm graduating from a casual cook to a gourmet chef. I just love having the fresh herbs available at all times. I use the Herb 'n Serve and fresh herbs from this kit to make the most wonderful dressings and salads. Before having the AeroGarden I tried several times to grow herbs with no luck. They would always start to grow and then they would fizzle out. Not with the AeroGarden, I love it so much I just ordered 3 more which will bring my total to 5 AeroGardens. Now I won't have the three week down time between seasons, I can just keep alternating so I'll always have fresh herbs, peppers and lettuce.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

I was very excited to grow cilantro, but I was disappointed that it did not sprout at all. I bought the kit at a local gourmet shop, so I thought maybe it was my fault for not buying directly through Aerogarden. If it ever happened again, I would request a replacement. All other herbs in the kit were fine.

My absolute favorite herb to use cilantro, so I was very pleased to find not just one but two plants. The basil, parsley, oregano, and thyme are also great additions to my kitchen. The epazote I did not use very much in my dishes, but trying to find recipes that I can use with it; This search has very much improved my recipe repertoire.

Comments about AeroGrow South of the Border Seed Kit (7-Pod):

This is my 4th seed Kit, and I will continue to buy, trying different varieties. I bought this one because it had cilantro, but found the cilantro very difficult to grow. It was growing, but it seemed like the plant couldn't hold its own weight up as soon as it got big enough to begin smelling like cilantro (just after about 2 weeks). I had to buy another kit, and sub the ever reliable basil pods in the place of both cilantro pods.

I would recomend the aero garden to anyone, but would only recomend this seed kit to advanced gardeners, with growing experience. :)
