    I have had Aerogardens for the past several years now and have been nothing but pleased. I currently own over a dozen units and the NEW Aerogarden Bounty Elite is beautiful and better then I could have imagined. The new 2019 model has a sleek and slimmer design with no lost options.

    Let me try to break it all down as best I can.

    Design: The design of this unit has a more modern look and feel.

    Light/Hood: The Light hood is thinner. The adjustment rod that raises the lights are simple. Just turn the knob to loosen, pull the light up or push it down and then tighten. The Bounty Elite is a 50W LED hood which is great. You can also now at any time dim the lights if needed to the wattage you want and then raise it back as well.

    Sunrise/Sunset Mode: You can now tell your unit to slowly raise the wattage of the lights in the morning and at night. I have mine set to take 60 minutes from the lowest setting to the 50 watts. This is a great feature.

    Vacation Mode: This mode is on previous units. I have not used this feature as of yet.

    Display: The display is totally touch screen and easy to use.

    Deck: The desk of the unit is wonderful! There are no tiny openings for the water to come up through and cause calcium marks as it is all one piece. The water fill hole is larger and no fear of over spill.

    Bowl and Pump: The bowl of the unit has a special holder for the pump and where the water flows out of into the deck. Roots will have a hard time to get into the deck with this design. The pump is in a special housing and can be removed for easy cleaning. And with the new pump housing the roots are more contained.

    Trellis: The new trellis system is easy to install. There are four rods that you place into the deck itself and then had the oval plant holder piece. No more trying to connect the old one to the light rod.

    Wi-Fi: No issues getting it installed and using.

    This is a superior unit and I love it!

    I don’t have a green thumb, even with herbs. Friends have told me to be careful growing mint as it will take over but not me, I can’t even grow mint. I purchased an AeroGarden 6 over 5 years ago and was fairly successful with most of the herb pods. The AeroGarden system does most of the work for you and you never need to worry about over-watering the soil as there is no soil with hydroponic systems.

    The easy to use touch screen guides you through the entire setup process which I found more user-friendly than pulling out a large manual. After assembly, all there is to do is add water to the specified level marked inside the chamber, add the plant food (do NOT add extra, this can harm your seeds/roots), and insert Seed Pods.

    Out of 9 pods, only 2 would not germinate (Thyme and one of two Genovese Basils). With my original AeroGarden 6, I was 100% successful the first time but declined down to 50% (3 out of 6 pods) the second and third time. AeroGarden advertises “Germination Guarantee” however, after contacting them on two occasions to complain about multiple pods not germinating, they sent me free replacements but tried making it out that it was my fault even though I was very meticulous. I no longer bother with their un-friendly “Guarantee”.

    The lighting is much better with their new models as you are no longer expected to buy overpriced replacement CFL bulbs every 6 months. I originally replaced them once a year as the price kept rising from $17 for 2 until they were $35 (and now, they are almost $60 CDN). This is when I gave up and left the AeroGarden 6 to collect dust in my basement. With the Bounty Elite, the potency of the lamp will last 3 years and LED lights are longer lasting and much more energy-efficient than fluorescent. The LED lights use 3 colours to promote growth in plants; white LEDs simulate daylight; the blue lights help your plants grow bigger; and the red lights help to bloom flowers or fruit.

    While I love this product, I do have mixed emotions. I like the aesthetics, it works great, easier to use than my earlier model and the lighting is much brighter. What worries me, what lies down the road after 3 years when you’re supposed to replace the entire lamp. There is no mention of replacement lamps on AeroGarden’s website and if there was, I don’t even want to imagine how expensive it would be to replace one of the main components of this system. I have a feeling I will only be enjoying the Bounty Elite for 3 years.

    Recommendations:
    – You should completely empty the tank once a month and replace with fresh distilled water.
    – Purchase an aquarium gravel cleaner (I bought a Python 6PC Mini Pro-Clean for less than $10 here on Amazon), this makes it so much easier to drain the tank rather than carrying it to the sink sloshing water everywhere.
    – Give the entire system a good cleaning with a water/bleach solution between plantings to reduce risk of pathogens that can destroy your crop.
    -Cut a large section of cardboard the same size as the garden and wrap it with foil then stand that up behind the system to help reflect even more light.

    Future Options: AeroGarden have many pod kits to choose from: Italian Herb, Cherry Tomato, Salad Greens, Heirloom Salad Greens, Mixed Romaine, Chili Peppers, Salsa Garden (Jalapenos and Tomatoes), and even a Grow Anything Kit where you insert your own seeds. Or, if herbs are not your thing they even offer a Spring Flowers and Mountain Meadow Flower Kit.

    I’ve owned several AeroGardens over the years and have given even more away as gifts. I had an older version of this Bounty model that I had given to a friend after I had used it for a couple of years and was curious to see what this new model looked like. I was impressed. It’s better looking (slimmer, nicer finish) and some of the new features were pretty nice. The Control Panel is nicer. There’s a visual display showing how much water you have that makes it much easier to know when to add more. There was a touch screen for setting the time that was easier than what I remember on the old model, although it’s still a bit tight for my fat fingers. They’ve also added a Vacation Mode, which claims to use 50% less water, which should be nice for for when I’m traveling on longer trips. It’s was still very easy to assemble, which is not a strength of mine. Just put a few pieces together and you’re good to go. This was only recently planted so I can’t report on growth but I’ve had really good success with all the other AeroGardens I’ve had so I don’t anticipate having any problems.
    Update After 2 Weeks: Everything but the Mint has already sprouted!
    Update After 3 Weeks: Although you can’t see it, the Mint is sprouting. Just a little slow. Everything else is coming along nicely.

    I had been wanting an Aerogarden for a while, so when the first panicked wave of COVID19 hit, I went ahead and purchased the Bounty. I have no regrets on this purchase. It’s so easy to set up that I was sure I’d done something wrong. Just pop a couple pieces together, fill it with water and drop the pods in. If like me, you forget to look after your plants, this connects to wi-fi and will send you reminders for when to add food or if the water gets low. At 28 days since planting my pods, I’ve already done some mini harvests on basil, dil and mint. Thyme and parsley are a little slow to get going, but they are doing great.

    It has been fascinating to watch these plants grow and something happy to look forward to each day.

    The light is B R I G H T. So bright that when I come down at 5 the morning and the rest of the lights are off, it doesn’t matter. I read some stuff online and decided I was smart, so I wrapped the whole thing in tin foil. It kept the light inside, kept the humidity up and my retinas were thankful. My pods sprouted several days earlier than expected, so I highly recommend this little hack. Once everything was an inch or so high I kep the tin foil off as I wanted to check on them every day. I also used the light for other plants. In jars off to the side I’ve sprouted some garlic cloves, regrown green onions. I reused the tin foil to create a three-sided wall around a seed starting kit and placed it next to the Bounty to use the light. In 5 days, everything had sprouted, even my pumpkin and melon seeds.

    To replace the water, which is recommended once a month, I just pulled the light off the pole, unplugged the pump and lifted the whole top lid with the pods up off the water bucket. I placed the whole section on the edges of a cardboard box (like the box was opened and the flaps were sticking straight up. I propped the corner of the box against a wall so it wouldn’t shift). It was easy to pick up the water bucket and carry it to the sink to rinse and refill. Took less than 5 minutes.

    The water pump is whisper quiet. I also have an Aerogarden Sprout. It is not quiet.

    The unit is quite small so it takes up very little space on your counter top. It is very, very easy to set up and use. The instructions were will laid out. It does not make any noise at all which is nice. This lights are bright but we have them set up to go on from 7am to 10 pm so they do not disturb our sleep.

    The only things that disappointed me was that the seeds included in my machine had already expired. I guess I was delivered a very old machine. Despite that, I planted the seeds anyway and 3 of them have started to sprout. We will see in time if the rest work.

    Six weeks later…all of my plants sprouted. They grow so fast. We have been harvesting basil regularly. The dill and mint have really grown and we will be using them soon. I have already decided to buy another one for lettuce. I just love this machine.

    Loved my AeroGarden which I received 12/28/2019, I grew a first herb garden and loved it so much I ordered all kinds of seeds and pods so I could keep a continuous Garden. Plants transfer well from AeroGarden to pots. However on my second garden the light went out, support is not available by phone and has not responded to my email requests. So while I love the Garden when working, I now have well over $400 invested in one successful herb garden with no communication from the manufacturer to resolve the issue.
    In reading other one star reviews I now see customer service for faulty product is an ongoing issue.

    We have really enjoyed growing our herbs with the AeroGarden bounty basic. Set up took “basil”-cally 5 minutes, and our herbs were sprouting in no “thyme.” We have never had a garden of our own, so it has been a big “dill” watching our herbs grow. The size is great for our medium size kitchen. It fits like it was “mint” to be!
    In all seriousness the AeroGarden has been a treat to have. It’s amazing how easy it was to set up, maintain with the digital reminders, and watch the herbs grow quickly! These photos were taken only 11 days after set up, and we already have substantial growth with no additional effort since set up. We can’t wait to start cooking with our homegrown herbs.

    I have a mix feeling after using this machine

    First it is a great idea – easy to use and using water and plant food makes it an ideal machine for indoor use.
    However it is just too pricy, especially seeds that sold by this company. If you are unlucky you get maybe 1 or 2 bad seeds then you waste like couple dollars. But normally those seeds should be very cheap to buy yourself.

    ps: It was $299 for the machine with alexa half year ago and now it is $500. Really? During pandemic?

    Perfect for an indoor unit. I went for broke and grabbed the top one. It tells you when to add water, add fertilizer, prune your plants and when to expect them to begin sprouting. The lights are fully automatic. My grow room smells amazing without bugs or other issues. I love adding fresh basil to my home made tomato sauce & fresh parsley to garnish my pasta dishes.
    Very low maintenance.

    The negative:

    1) The plants spread out quick once they get going. I only used half the pods in anticipation. Problem is… you need to block the unused holes to prevent algae growth in the reservoir. You should be given plugs to block the unused holes.
    2) I suggest trimming the roots every month. They spread like crazy. The tray the pods sit inside lifts out easily to do this task quickly.
    3) plants grow very close to one another. You’ll have to prune them regularly.

    I’m giving this review one stars due to the fact after numerous emails and incorrect links provided on their website once you buy an aerogarden you CANNOT register it for the warranty that they tell you you will get

    The link provided for warranty registration is a broken link on there website and no one has responded to getting my product registered under the warranty that it promises I’ve been given the run around on curstom service which is only available through email in which the email that’s provided with your aerogarden is also a broken email I had to search all the correct contact but there is NO working link to register your product after paying over 300$ they are no longer providing warranty and if they are they provided incorrect links

    I’ve emailed three times over the past week
