About My Aero Gardening

AeroGarden Harvest 360

Welcome to my My Aero Gardening website.

AeroGardening is an incredibly easy method that works for everyone. Yes, even young children will enjoy watching the seeds come to life.

Hello, my name is Yvonne; I love Aero Gardening plants in water without dirt!

Hydroponics became my passion when I was first introduced to the topic during my horticultural studies. More importantly, when AeroGarden brought out the first system in 2006, I thought what an awesome idea at the time. AeroGarden made headlines in Health and Wellbeing, “World’s First Kitchen Garden Appliance.” AeroGarden uses NASA’s idea, aeroponic technology which uses grow lights.

I want to share my passion for aerogardens

Sharing my love for growing plants in water without dirt indoors is a passion of mine and has been made easier since AeroGarden introduced its product. In essence, you can grow just about anything in an AeroGarden now. For instance, flowers, herbs, salad leaves, and some vegetables can be grown in water, indoors throughout the year.

My Story

My interest in growing plants in water stems from when I was young. Gardening became my passion, and I often wonder about growing plants in a hydroponic system after completing my Certificate in Horticulture in Queensland.

Hydroponics is about growing plants without dirt. Regrettably, we didn’t delve too much into this topic at the time. Besides, AeroGardens were introduced some years after completing my certificate.

I spent my childhood living in England before we migrated to Australia. During my younger years, as a child, I enjoyed collecting vegetable scraps from my mum. The tops of the carrots I would place on the saucer with some water and watch them develop green stems and leaves.

Vegetable scraps, once fed to our rabbits, grew in the water. for instance, celery bottoms, lettuce crowns, flowering bulbs, and onions.

Whose idea was it to provide me with this project? I’m not sure, it could have been Dad, who was an avid garden lover, and a firm believer in growing his own vegetables, or mum who wanted to find something for us to do.

When I started primary school, we learned to grow watercress, peas, and beans on a blotting paper that was once used to blot up ink and watch them sprout.

I’m not sure if we added any nutrients to those sprouts, in fact, I really don’t remember. When the project was finished, the seedlings went to the groundsman, who would plant them in the school garden or dispose of them without our knowledge.

My First introduction to Aero Gardening

We went to the Northern Territory some years later, and I started working in the hospitality industry. Whilst there, I learned that they grew hydroponic lettuce near Alice Springs in massive systems in water without dirt, in the desert. This really intrigued me because the stores didn’t have to rely on hydroponic lettuce being transported from other states.

Gardening without dirt

My father lived in England. He used to have a small greenhouse where he would grow his seeds to prepare for spring planting. Dad would often grow tomatoes during winter and other plants. It wasn’t until after his death that I thought he would have loved the idea of indoor gardening. Specifically to grow his seeds and plants without having to venture out into the snow. Yes, he used to go outdoors in all kinds of weather to check on his plants growing in the greenhouse to ensure the temperature was ambient for his plants.

During my research into hydroponic systems, I came upon a site that discussed an AeroGarden. My love of this indoor gardening system started to grow. At times I wonder how people, who do not have access to gardens but live in high-rise accommodation could grow their own.

You can imagine having the opportunity to pick fresh herbs, lettuce, tomatoes from one’s kitchen. Of course, AeroGarden products are ideal family, nursing homes, schools or seniors.

I want to Help You

I want to share my passion for aero gardening, in fact sharing ideas, tips and tricks will help me to interact with anyone from beginners to advanced aero gardeners.

Aero gardening is a flexible indoor fun activity that is convenient and suitable for children and adults of all ages. Your family will enjoy watching their seedlings grow to plants indoors and in water.

Once your crop is ready to harvest, you can pick something fresh for one of your favorite dishes. To illustrate, it is especially ideal and convenient when you finish work late, and the shops are closed.

Dried herbs are handy in the cupboard, but they never seem to have the same fresh taste.

An interest in growing plants indoors in an aero garden is increasing all the time. It is ideal for anyone’s families, schools, colleges, businesses, restaurants, and companies.

The Purpose of Aero Gardening

The purpose of Aero Gardening is to present you, the reader, with factual information, tips, knowledge of equipment ideas, and resources to help everyone enjoy growing plants indoors successfully.

      Hi Tania, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on herbs. Did you know that growing herbs in an aero garden has more nutritional value than the ones grown in soil? All the best.
