Have fresh herbs always with a $60 AeroGarden Sprout (save $40)


If you’ve been eyeing an indoor smart garden for yourself or as a cheerful gift for Dad or an impending grad, the sleek AeroGarden Sprout indoor smart garden is down to $60 at Best Buy right now. That’s $40 off the normal price and as cheap as we’ve ever seen the Sprout, which houses three plants and provides everything you need to grow fresh herbs, lettuce and flowers all year and in any space — even a dorm. (Amazon price-matched the same garden in case you prefer to buy it there.)

The Sprout is perfect for dipping your toe into the indoor smart garden waters. The self-contained seed pods are mess-free, and the Sprout takes care of watering and provides light via LEDs to keep plants in bloom. The smart garden even comes with three pods to get you started: Genovese basil, curly parsley and dill, plus a three-ounce bottle of plant nutrients.

We’ve tested plenty of indoor gardens including some AeroGarden models and they work surprisingly well, especially for growing herbs, lettuce and flowers. Vegetables can be a bit trickier but if you would make use of fresh basil, parsley, mint or greens like spinach and lettuce, this is the perfect place to grow them year-round. These self-contained pod gardens do all the watering for you and the LEDs mean you can put them anywhere — even a room with no windows.
