Wish having a green thumb didn’t mean going into the yellow sun? These days it doesn’t! You can grow plants, including helpful herbs to cook with, right on your kitchen counter. The AeroGarden Sprout 3-pod kit is a great way to start, too, and today it’s down to $59.99 at Best Buy. That’s $10 better than the last deal we shared and $40 off its regular price. You can still find it going for $99 at Home Depot and other retailers. The low price is part of Best Buy’s deals of the day, so it won’t last forever.
Whether you’re a beginner to the indoor gardening hobby or you’re just on a budget, the Sprout is a great way to give it a shot. You’ll be able to grow a few herbs of your choosing anywhere in your home, including right on the kitchen counter if you want. The garden doesn’t have to be outdoors or even near a window because they don’t rely on the sun for photosynthesis. They also don’t need soil because this is a hydroponic garden, meaning they grow in water. That takes away a lot of the issues normally associated with gardening, including the mess of soil and the problem with positioning.
You will get three gourmet herb seed pods to help get you started, and once you’ve done something with those you can look up others to buy based on what you need. The starting pods include Genovese basil, curly parsley, and dill. There are plenty of other pods to choose from and they all work just as quickly. You can choose a variety of herbs or just go with all the same of an herb you use often.
Some of the AeroGarden options are so large they have to go in specific places. The Sprout is rather small, though, which means you can place it in far more locations. You could even use it as decoration while you’re growing the latest herbs. Sit it on your desk or a bookshelf. It doesn’t have to be right in your kitchen.
