Many of us dream about having a garden where we can grow our own food, but we don't really have the space to do so. But a new invention called AeroGarden might just help us with this dream. This indoor garden was created by AeroGrow International and can be used in order to grow small amounts of herbs, vegetables and even flowers. The AeroGarden comes with some special seed pods but you can also use your own seeds.
So how do the plants grow? Well the answer to that question is artificial sunlight from CFL or LED lights. And because the light hood is adjustable, you can also grow taller plants as well as smaller ones. Also, the garden uses a liquid fertilizer that must be mixed with the water from the reservoir. The AeroGarden uses no soil, but instead it makes use of hydroponics so that the roots soak in a water that is rich in nutrients.

The AeroGarden also comes in several different sizes that can accommodate 3, 6 or 9 seed pots. Included is also a plastic dome that encourages germination but make sure you check the garden for excessive humidity or the presence of mold.
You can find many reviews of the AeroGarden on the internet especially on YouTube if you are interested in seeing how it works before buying one. Here is a presentation of the AeroGarden:
