The AeroGarden Elite will let you grow up to 6, 12-inch plants at a time. It comes with an herb seed kit that includes two kinds of basil, plus parsley, dill, thyme, and mint, along with a three-ounce bottle of plant nutrients to last you through a season of growth. The 20-watt LED growing light is designed to help your plants grow. A control panel will remind you when it’s time to add water or plant food, and automatically turns the lights on and off for your sprouting herbs. It’s a hydroponic system, which means your plants grow in water, not dirt (less messy, faster for growth), and it comes in an array of colors, like red, sage, or white.
