Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

We have enjoyed the aerogarden. However, this is the third time we have ordered chives. They do not grow well, and replacing them has been worthless. I would like to see the option to order another herb when one doesn't do well. The Basil and Thyme however, are excellent. Last year at the end of winter, we planted our Basil and thyme still in the pod, into our outdoor garden. They thrived. This then left the aerogarden free to grow lettuce all summer which I prefer to grow indoors to make it pest free.

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

Don't buy this kit, make up your own selections. The Basil grows like a forest the Thyme hardly grows and the dill is so small it may not survive. It was a mistake buying the kit, I should have picked my own herbs.

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I love all my Aero Garden's.....am into week 3 with a 7 pod variety of greens garden and it's going very well, this time ordered a new 3 pod herb garden and the shears (love) and salad maker (haven't had a chance to try it yet) was very excited to be able to use the herbs to make the salad dressings, but surprised that the chives did not grow, am hoping when I call I will receive another "pod" to get to grow with the rest! Last Christmas the 7 pod gardens were the "special" gifts I gave and were a HUGE hit with everyone!

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I have liked the 3 pod grower but I was only able to get two of the three pods to grow, the third has started but died out very quicly. I have had good luck with the Basil and Thyme and have used them in crock pot cooking and they were great. This is my second time growing with the 3 pod and I can only get two pods to grow. I purchased a 6 pod and hope to get 4 pods to grow based on a 2/3 growth success.

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I love this little garden. I just wish they would tell you somewhere in the instructions when you are setting it up that tap water (well water/ water softener) will slow down the growing process to a stand still. It was not until I went online searching did I find out about using distilled water. After I dumped out my tap water and added distilled water, the plants took growing. the Basil is growing fast, the thyme is so so and the chives are 3 little shoots, I would not order chives again. All in all I will be buying another unit, one for growing tomatoes.

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I didn't give it a 5 because nothing is ever perfect, but this is close. It TOTALLY exceeded my expectations. I have a 6 pod and two 3 pods. Herbs in the 6 pod, lettuce and spinach in the 3 pods. The seeds that come with are great, but I love the fact you can start your own as well. I used my own lettuce seeds and they sprouted in 3 days! Spinach took a bit longer. I want to get the seed starter tray for next year to help get my outdoor garden started as well. I am snipping things all the time and actually find it produces more than I can keep up with! Haven't tried the tomatoes and the like yet, but I really look forward to experimenting with more seeds! I may have to get more, probably the big one so I can do items that need the trellis and height, and one for the living room, which is in the basement so gets little to no natural light. It would be so fantastic to have some beautiful flowers in the dungeon! And I love the fact that any plants NEAR the garden benefit from the spill over lighting, even in the otherwise dark useless space of a corner in my kitchen that could never maintain a plant before. I plan to buy a small one for my mom as well! :)

Haven't used this particular kit in its entirety just yet... did take one of the pods and place it into our 7-Pod unit while using the newer 3-Pod unit to grows salads and mixed-greens using the Master Gardener's kit... Growing our own from selected/purchased seeds has been our main route since originally obtaining the 7-Pod classic AeroGargen... the units themselves are great to have!!

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

Basil grew like crazy! Several plentiful harvests! Thyme did moderately well; chives fizzled out shortly after starting and never matured to harvest size. 3-pod great for small apartment; not as good for one-room studio, unless you set the timer to come on around the time you get up in the a.m. and off near bedtime. Otherwise, you have a very bright night light!

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

We love our AeroGarden, which has increased our interest in cooking at home. We love italian cooking and having fresh basil all the time is amazing. We also enjoy tomato, basil, and mozzarella which is so much nicer with fresh basil.

Growing different herbs has encouraged us to try new recipes, which is always fun. We have a ton of thyme, time to learn something new to cook with thyme. In general it has just been a fun activity and kept things interesting in the kitchen. A highly recommended hobby for anyone who enjoys cooking or gardening.

I received my first areogarden a year ago Christmas Day. Herbs came with it. My son and daughter-in-law gave it to me for a xmas gift. I still have the basil pod growing after 13 months. My mint died early on. I don't think I got the thyme with the set. I have ordered another set of 6 just in case. My husband says that I make the best roast since I started using the herbs along with garlic and onion.

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I live in the Midwest and own four large Aerogardens that I use year 'round. I bought this unit for my sister, because she loves fresh herbs too, but has limited space to grow them indoors. Added bonus: her husband finds the process intriguing, and enjoys maintaining the plants/unit and watching them grow.
It's worth noting that the basil should be trimmed regularly so the thyme gets adequate light. As for the chives, the amount here is adequate for light use, which is about how most folks use them. Personally, I use them a lot, and keep a large pot under a grow light. I wonder if it's possible to create an Aerogarden with larger grow spaces, which accommodates herbs that grow well in largish clumps, such as parsley or chives?

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I gave this to my mother for a Christmas gift. East to set up and everything included. It sprouted fairly quickly and was very pleased with the results. The basil gets large quick! At an extraordinary rate! Some say that the chives never sprouted but I guess I was lucky because mine were beautiful and had a strong flavor. The thyme was great. Vibrant green on one side, adeep purple on the other. I am a chef in NYC and I was giving this as a gift for my mother who doesn't always have access to the freshest herbs. I was actually surprised and so were my fellow chefs when the flavor was strong and clean!

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

I got the aerogarden 3 as a gift with the gourmet herb seed kit. Its been a blast growing everything! My chives never sprouted, and aerogarden got me a replacement pod, but only 4 teeny chives sprouted from that. The basil and thyme on the other hand went crazy! I had to start harvesting the basil and freezing it to use later, there was just too much! I also took clippings and rooted them in water and the clippings are thriving in pots in my windowsill! Wonderful start to using the aerogarden, online ordering a new seed kit right now!

Comments about AeroGrow Gourmet Herb Seed Kit (3-Pod):

Although I do love the varieties in the 3-packs versus the 7 packs, I still wish that you could customize the herb kits for the 3 packs. mFor all of the packs, I still find that there is one herb that I probably will not use that much and wish that I could replace it with another.
