Miracle Grow Vegetable Garden makes indoor gardening easy
Loving salads and finding time to go the grocery store can be a problem.
However, I am going to share what I know about the Miracle Grow Vegetable Garden in this Aerogarden Ultra led review.
Busy Mom’s want to eat well but time and money can be challenging at times.
In addition, some people think they have a brown thumb. Are you one of them?
I am going to tell you something I have learned and that is: There is No such thing as a “brown thumb” when you use the Miracle Gro Aerogarden Ultra led .
I say that even though I have a green thumb because I grow food many different ways and I know the ups and downs of gardening.
Indoor gardens that operate with the simplicity and ease of the Miracle Grow indoor garden line will have you will be going full speed growing fresh lettuce, herbs and other veggies in your home.
Even on your kitchen counter, you will have year round indoor gardening.
Moreover, you can even grow strawberries
Weather is not an issue.

Are you ready to grow your own lettuce indoors?
You can do that on any table or counter in your house. Heck, even your dresser but watch out there will be light. Therefore, if you are ready to grow your own salad greens and herbs right on your counter, the AeroGarden Ultra LED Indoor Garden is a great solution.
Aerogrow Kitchen Garden on your counter or table
It takes up very little space on your counter. In addition, the unit is aesthetically pleasing and you will not mind the addition to your kitchen countertop or other areas of your home.
You will be able to harvest lettuce leaves and herbs for a fresh salad, in no time, right from your Kitchen counter. Most of the time you can cut and come again daily with your kitchen garden.
Not only will your greens, herbs, tomatoes, and chives be at your fingertips daily; but also they will be fresh, tasty, and colorful.
All chock-full of nutrients.
Lettuce grown in the AeroGarden has almost 300% more Vitamin C than the average store bought lettuce from conventional or the organic source.
A Complete Indoor Hydroponic Garden Kit with interactive prompts
This indoor garden kit has a fully interactive control panel.
With an easy-to-use interactive LCD display that utilizes on screen prompts, to guide you step by simple step, from the setup through the harvest
The LCD touch screen makes setting up a new batch of seeds to grow a breeze. Tracking your progress, it is fun and easy too. Well, I think it is but then I track many things. Lol
The built in control panel automatically turns lights on and off, and reminds you when to add water and liquid plant food. This creates the optimal growing environment for your plants. The control panel also includes timely tips and on-screen help functions.
Although the tips are redundant on the subsequent plantings.
When they aerogarden becomes a connected device maybe the tips can be downloaded for a fresh batch. You never know.
Buy the Kitchen Herb Garden indoor kit but grow anything you want
You can customize the garden to almost anything you want to grow. Smaller varieties of plants are usually better though.
However, there is no green thumb required!
How does this garden grow?
The ULTRA LED is one of the biggest and best gardens in AeroGrow’s line of extraordinary soil-free indoor gardens.
These gems will grow plants 5 times faster hydroponically than grown in soil.
No Soil Gardening is the Bomb
This garden uses the method of no soil gardening.
The garden is Soil free but the seeds are embedded in a pod.
Yes, you understand me, soil free, not flowerpots or flower boxes, no “right spot” to place your future plants. No window needed or the right sun exposure.
Nor does the amount of time the sun shines matter.
Word of caution: Do not put the garden in the hot sun.
LED grow lights take care of the plants need for sunlight.
Fast Germination with a Hydroponic indoor garden and fast growth
Moreover, because this is a hydroponic indoor garden, your seeds will germinate within 7-14 days, and you are ready for your first harvest, in 4-6 weeks. The plants will keep producing continuous harvests for up to 6 months or longer, depending on the plant and the care you give your plants. Super fast growth.
Cut and Come again Gardening at its best
This super fast growth will allow you to use the cut and come again harvest method with your lettuce and herbs.
You can harvest lettuce leaves and herbs for a fresh salad daily for one person. The size of the salad you might make and frequency will vary according to age of crop and how many people you are attempting to feed salad. I personally find it a great way to supplement what I put in my salad or on my plate.
I can add lettuce and herbs to my main meal daily.
Noteworthy: for harvesting lettuce, it is best to harvest while it is young; the leaves are not bitter then, as they might be when they are fully mature.
This is just like in the garden outside. The lettuce will grow Fast in the Miracle grow Aerogarden.

I am so fond of these Miracle Grow Vegetable Gardens. I have many of them. I even have a ladybug Aerogarden.
These indoor gardening systems are a simple easy and rewarding way to grow all your lettuce, herbs and other veggies. The AeroGarden has a reservoir that provides the root system with the perfect balance of oxygen, water, and nutrients. Some vegetables true are more challenging due to extreme growth rate or possible sensitivities to changes in the water conditions. Nevertheless, I love these indoor gardens and feel they make indoor gardening the perfect mess free addition to your kitchen counter or any spot in your home.
You indoor garden will grow and thrive in a mixture of water and patented, specially formulated Liquid Nutrients. It is the best stuff to use if you are new to this type of gardening. You can do things differently once you gain experience. However, is not necessary.
Such as, buying nutrients from other sources and mixing them yourself. That is a bit more advanced and not as simple. I say keep it simple.
To say the least the garden is flexible and able to make even an advanced gardener happy.

Assembly of the indoor gardening kit:
The AeroGarden Ultra LED assembles in just minutes without tools and comes with everything you need to start growing your delicious salad, veggies, and herbs.
The garden comes with seeds and the nutrient solution and full set of instructions. Planting is fun and easy.
After the garden is setup on your counter or table, all you need is an outlet to plug in your AeroGarden™ and water.
Planting the seeds is as easy as these three steps.
- Add water
- Add the Specially Formulated Liquid Plant Food
- Insert the pre-seeded pods in your garden
Then just Follow the onscreen prompts
A Note about water:
Try not to use regular tap water to grow your food.
Distilled water or filtered water is an option.
However, I am sure there are many people that use their garden with nasty old tap water.
I use filtered water and will not use tap water because of all the bad stuff in from the tap. If you have well water that is good for plants but might be hard on the pump.
Once you followed those steps, you are good to go.
You will soon be harvesting your lettuce and herbs; for your fresh delicious salad and cooking delights.
The garden Dimensions are:
19.2 by 14.8 by 34 inches and weighs about 12.9 pounds shipped.
And as mentioned earlier the light pole will raise up 24 inches.
This Aerogarden with gourmet herb seed kit includes:
A 7 Pod Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit that contains:
- Chives (add it to nightly meals)
- Cilantro (awesome flavor slow to take off)
- Curly Parsley (excellent on food and juiced)
- Dill (awesome flavor)
- Genovese Basil (fast grower)
- Mint (I like to grow this separately)
- Thai Basil (lovely plant and smells awesome too)
They all have a great aroma and awesome taste. Nothing bland about them.
Some of these herbs can get rather tall as do any tomato or pepper plant minis you might later grow in this unit but the garden is equipped with a fully adjustable lamp arm that has a 24-inch tall growing space for high yields and a greater plant variety.
This indoor herb grow kit has good information but you can always use some tips
The kit also has a tutorial, but if you are a beginner, it might not have enough information of how and what to do for your plants and how to properly clean your AeroGarden.
Therefore, I have added some tips for Cleaning the Aerogarden click here:
Garden all year long, no matter where you live
Since everything is grown indoors and under grow lights, you can keep gardening, growing, and harvesting all year round
No need to prep things and shut things down for the winter. You will have beautiful, fresh, green food twelve months of the year.
What a great way to keep eating healthy.

In addition, if you are in love with green smoothies, then this is a match made.
With the greens produced in your kitchen garden, you can grow your own supply of fresh heirloom greens for your smoothies or even romaine lettuce.
I will admit though, that I use more vegetables for smoothies and juicing than one aerogarden can handle.
But I am garden crazy and have more than one.
Grow your own supply of veggies with an indoor vegetable garden kit
Buying fresh organic vegetable for smoothies can be very pricey and trip to the store every other day to stock up short lived organic store produce is not feasible for most.
Thankfully, this indoor vegetable garden helps solve this. You can grow your own supply of veggies.
So it is On to a healthy, organic, flavorful, lifestyle
Non-GMO. No Herbicides. No Pesticides.
At the AeroGrow Company, they believe that their products should be as natural as they can be. You can read more about the company click here:
The Consumer opinion is high with these gardens with more than a four star rating.
I personally give it 4.5 stars.
Why not five?
I believe some of the components like the push buttons in the Ultra led control panel could be sturdier. However, The Miracle Gro AeroGarden Bounty has what I consider a great improvement on the control panel.
I will do a comparison of the gardens in the future.
Below I will address some issues I noticed but have no problem with myself after years of owning multiple aero gardens and having over eight various gardens. Most being the Ultra version.
Aerogarden pump noise:
The pump is very quiet, as a rule, but some people complained of it being too loud, it does emit a very low hum.
You can occasionally hear the water, as it switches around the reservoir. It is not an obnoxious sound and you will adjust to the sounds, just as you do to your heat or air conditioner, when they click on.
I use air stones in my gardens and my air pumps (think aquariums) are louder than the Miracle grow Aerogarden. I do notice more noise from the garden when the water level gets extremely low.
Then the question occurs; why let it get so low?
My family visits my house and they say they have been around my AeroGardens and have not been disturbed or bothered, by the sound of this grower. Although it could be, their ears are not super sensitive. Maybe something like a low hum does not bother some people.
I will qualify this with my bias as I have fish tanks too.
I love my Oscar.
Issues with seeds not sprouting.
This does not mean the garden is bad.
Some shipments of seeds go bad in shipping. They might even be killed by radiation for all I know. Maybe some seeds have passed their prime.
I have had seed pods fail to grow or thrive.
What do I do about it?
Since the seeds are guaranteed to grow, I call up Aerogarden and let them know and they send me replacements.
That has been my experience.
Issues with a garden malfunctioning.
A few customers had issues with the AeroGarden stopping working; they did not say if they contacted Amazon or the AeroGarden Company.
I know that both companies would have replaced the AeroGarden™ with no questions asked, and I believe they would ship the garden free. Both companies are very customer friendly and will do what they can to satisfy the customer. I have had gardens or parts replaced when necessary
