Petunias are gorgeous flowers and not just because they look good. AeroGarden pods are super friendly to these flowers and take about a week for petunias to sprout. Being the most cost-effective in terms of wattage, petunias please your eye for 4 months.

Although petunias can’t be used as food and don’t give any fruit, they serve as a good garnish for your kitchen, living room or bedroom. Cascading petunia seed kits can have 3, 6, 7 and 9 pods. Miracle-Gro AeroGarden bounty with gourmet herb seed pod kit is perfect to grow large kits.

Pros
  • Petunias take less electricity per day than herbs and veggies;
  • The lifespan of petunias is 4 months;
  • The package includes a bottle of nutrients, grown dome lids and a detailed instruction;

  • Petunias don’t germinate and blossom with unfiltered water;
  • Some people say they struggle with growing flowers in Miracle-Gro AeroGarden pods.

Yes, you can. The question is how long they are going to last there. AeroGarden keeps the plants fresh for months, while a real garden is great only when it’s season.

The best you can do is to keep them sealed. Don’t open them unless you are about to plant them the same day. Otherwise, they can never germinate in the future.

    I’m a fan of gardening and love lettuce and basil. I eat salads every day for better digestion and my aerogarden helps me so much to follow my healthy routine. The herbs and greens look as good as they smell and taste. It’s incredible! I didn’t have any problems setting it up and all that stuff. Thanks for the opportunity to grow everything I like at home!

    I had problems because my herb seed pod kit didn’t germinate after a month. I called to replace the pods and it worked. They said something like try to change the water, which I did. Now my plants sprouted and I’m over the moon. I can’t wait for them to fully grow. I got a 3-pod kit, by the way.

    My friend said she had had some problems setting the pods up because the button got stuck or so. I didn’t have any problems because I have an aerogarden with a sensor screen. My petunias grow as if it’s spring. I put my flowers on a shelf and everyone who comes to my house says what a gorgeous little garden I have! Thanks a lot, I highly recommend to buy petunias!

    My mom is Spanish and loves salsa so much that when I came across a salsa kit for aerogarden I bought a garden and a kit. We tried growing peppers and tomatoes there, we also bought some basil and thyme seeds. It grew up within 3 or 4 months I guess and we made the sauce and it was so delicious that we can’t wait to make another sauce when the time comes for kit #2 to grow

    My wife was upset when we had to replace the pods but eventually we managed to grow beet greens. We are vegans and eat veggies, greens and herbs like every day. Aerogarden is our big love since we grow everything there. Gourmet herb kit was our latest purchase and we are now waiting for the sprouts of parsley and dill to mature. We recommend the kit for those who don’t like the idea of purchasing those seeds separately
