Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

These little inserts made my vegetable garden so sinple to get started. It requires minimal effort to pop in the little grow plugs, add the seeds, and watch them grow. It was a breeze. When the vegetables were large enough to transplant, I just popped them out and planted them in my outdoor growing pots. My garden is flurishing. Also, there was minimal mess to clean up. Its never been easier. I will use these from now on.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

These grow sponges are ideal for making sure that your seed gets rooted and on its way. I've used them successfully both in my aerogarden, of course, and soil; just to experiment. The only downside is the price. I appreciate that they include extra nutes, but 100 sponges rather then 75 would be that much more bang for your buck. Either way, it's a great buy!

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I was so disappointed that the Refill Packs were out of stock this spring/summer and I couldn't use them for this year's crop. Last year I planted vegetable seeds in the usual way in March and then got the Garden Starter Tray in late April. My plants were larger & more robust in the Garden Starter Tray then the plants I had started over a month earlier in the traditional way.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

This is the 2nd year of using the trays. I have 2 trays, I use 1 for flowers & 1 for veggies. I love being able to start plants that I cannot find around here. I had tried starting seeds using other methods and it never worked. This makes it so much easier. The only problem, I get so excited to start the seeds, the plants are full grown before planting time!

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

For the last few years, every spring I had to buy all my plants for the vegetable garden. I prefered to grow my own plants but had no room in my new house to do it. I discovered aerogardens garden starter tray. I had my doubts about how good the plants would be. Well, now I have no more doubt. Everything I planted grew beautifully.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I purchased the Garden Starter Tray's for both my AG6's & 2 extra Garden Starter Tray Refill Packs to start my own plants from seeds. I now have a garden full of vegetable plants and flower beds full of flowers that would have cost me a small fortune if I had bought the plants separately. The seeds also started sprouting in about 2 to 5 days, about half the time stated on the seed packets.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I just ordered my second kit. The setup is so compact and self contained that now I start all of my seeds like this. It takes so little time to plant that I no longer get started late. By the time I'm getting in the mood to garden, my seeds have sprouted and are ready to go. Large plants like tomatoes and beans, I move to pots where they get big and bushy by planting time due to the robust root systems acquired in the Aerogarden. More difficult slower growers always used to be tricky, getting moldy or too dry in peat pots or flats. I'd lose some plants due to root damage during transplanting which the grow sponges virtually eliminate. Now I leave it to my Aerogarden to get my seeds off to a good start.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

We started growing our pepper plants in these plugs in May as a last resort for the garden and by the time we put them out in June the plants were 6" tall and we had missed the hail storms. Our pepper plants this year were 2' to 3' tall and produced the most peppers we ever had. We were sold. To make transplanting easy I purchased a garden drill bit auger at the hardware store and with my cordless drill was able to plant the seedlings very quickly because of the plug size.
P.S. We rinsed our seeds in a weak solution of bleach and water to kill off any fungus / disease before we placed them in the plugs.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

The reason that I like this product over other similiar products is because they arrive dry so that you don't have to worry about sanitizing them with clorox. They also are easy to cut to fit into the 7 pod gardens. The pods are good quality and parts of it do not come off into your garden. I highly recommend this product.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

The biggest/ major issue is "damping off" fungus virtually every time I have used these... I have found that applying Sevin to seeds and plugs makes a huge difference when applied prior to planting and during growth cycle. Also sterilize your trays every time you reuse them

I reccommend these because there are no other options

Super for starting seedlings in the Garden Starter Tray. I managed a fall garden with no time to spare. Using the refills in the Garden Starter Tray, I raised seedlings extremely quickly and was able to get them outside even without hardening.

Now I'm still harvesting greens in northeastern OR in November after a number of freezing nights! I protect my plants with row covers.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

Having traveled extensively and growing a garden whoever I have been (50 years), I was very skeptical about the growing abilities of the Aero garden from seed..I experimented, and with patience (I am fussy),learned how to probagate,harden off and transplant young plants at at cost which is unbelievable via store bought plants that have come out of a greenhouses,looks pretty but may have come from God knows where! (I am talking about replanting due to the Stress of replanting) The Aero developes a great root system, stems are sturdy and replanting to a soil container to harden them off is very easy but do it in stages (amount of time outdoors is very important)
The only things that are not so great may be you rushing the whole procedure. Don't trust the feeder/water alarm
as this will depend on the size of your plants! I check the water ever two days after initial growth has begun.
By the way, my nearest garden center is 60 miles away,
so I double save in time and gas.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I agree with "Needs Improvements" review. It needs some work but it is very useful the way it is now. First, the sponges should be soaked in water 15 minutes before you put them, in the tray. When you put them in dry they tend to slide down to the bottom of the hole. The second thing applies to the roots getting tangled. That could be fixed by tubes underneath the tray. Then if they get tangled you could just cut around the tubes and then pull out the plugs. If the plants are well rooted in the plug, pruning to seperate them wouldn't hurt them at all. In fact, it would probably stimulate them more when transplanting. Although I have alot of ideas to better these systems if i'm not getting paid for them, I must keep them to myself! I'm very happy with the resuts i've had so far.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I am disabled with COPD and can't dig holes very well or take care of starting plants without the AeroGarden. The seeds sprouted so quickly. I enjoyed watching them grow until I decided to put a piece of a tomato plant in it to try to grow another one. I didn't realize that I brought bugs in with it. That was the beginning of the end of those pants.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I am new to the aerogarden and have just started experimenting, I have had a thrill watching my tomatoes grow, only to keel over from the weight of the plant, but they still wanted to thrive. I planted lettuce from my own seeds that I gathered from last years outdoor garden, but best of all, I started peas in the garden starter, I used only one seed per plug as the plugs were so small for the seed, and 75% grew, and could not believe how quickly they grew, I transplanted them outdoors in Nov. here in california, ( without hardening off) and they are doing so well, finally after all these years I can relax and grow peas without having to go out every night with a flash light to kill off those nasty critters eating all my new little sprouts... .

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I will be buying this at least once a year going forward. I've been trying to start my own seedlings for years with no success. This spring, I started both my spring and summer vegetables with the seed starting insert and these plugs. Be careful not to plant too soon, because plants grow faster in the Aerogarden and my tomatoes were ready before the last frost. I didn't have any problem with roots not coming out smoothly, and the plants transplanted well.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I use the starter refills to plant all my small seeded herbs and vegetables. For a single vegetable plant the expense is higher than I like (about 20 cents/sponge) but I can reduce the cost per plant by using multiplant strategies for all the seeds that fit and grow well crowded together (e.g. broccoli and turnips - 4 plants/sponge; cabbage - 3 plants/sponge; onion - 5 plants/sponge). If there were 1 inch diameter sponges available I would buy those for larger seeds like peas, corn, and cucumbers.

I love the garden starter! Last year I tried it for the first time and was able to grow 70 starter peppers in a very small space w/no messy dirt or fussing with light heights. The year before we grew few plants yet in much more space in the garage! I also found that instead of spindly, weak sprouts, I got hardy plants with more leaves right away. I'm hooked!

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I started this year’s garden in a grow room in my basement with moderate success. I picked up the starter kit for a last ditch effort to start my garden from seed.

I planted a mix of herb, veggies, and flowers. Most of the 70 pods sprouted in a fraction of the time it took for same seeds to grow in soil in my basement, so I was able to fill out my garden with out having to purchase plants.

I plan to pick up the replacement pods kits so I can have fresh herbs all winter. Then I will start next year’s garden with what I’m expecting to be a great success.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

The product was easy to set up and start. Growth is slower than the regular Aero garden pods but faster than soil. The few problems I encountered was that if left too long (more than three weeks) in the kit the roots tangle and get damaged. Another problem was trying not to damaged the roots while trying to get the pods out of the tray. I had a few plants die cause of tangled roots or damaged roots. I would suggest making a tool that can be used for untangling the roots and for pushing out the pods from the tray.

Plants that were not damaged were planted outside and did well after transplanting.

Comments about AeroGrow Garden Starter Tray Refill Pack:

I bought 2 of these kits to expand the Aerogarden spring planting capabilities.
The first one, I used for hot pepper plants. In less than 5 weeks, they were getting little buds! Talk about impressive growth, I was just so darn proud of those peppers. Unfortunately, 3 days after I transplanted them to my outdoor garden, the deer had a nice dinner, and I lost all but 20 plants!
The 2nd tray I used for wavy petunia seeds, and was shocked when they sprouted after just 4 days! If you've ever tried growing petunias from seed, you know how frustrating they can be. This was a piece of cake! I have 8 gorgeous hanging baskets now, transplanted after just 6 weeks, and it couldn't have been easier. I'm buying again next year!
