3-Pod Seed Kit Reviews

Many people are having issues with the AeroGarden Gourmet Herb 3-Pod seed pods growing. The basil typically sprouts, but the other two herbs have difficult times.

However, in general Dill is often hard to grow. One day it is fine, and the next day it will look dead! Then, you wait a few days and it’s perfect again.

Dill is typically an herb that you need to be patient with. however, if you do end up having difficulty getting it t sprout, you can always contact the manufacturer and ask for a replacement pod or simply throw in some dill seeds into the current pod.


Another concern people are having with the 3-Pod is that there isn’t a lot of space because the herbs grow so big.

A simple solution is to use the AeroGarden as a start, then transfer your luscious new herbs to a bigger pot or container. Or, prune your herbs to keep them maintained in the Aerogarden.

Fresh dill from an indoor garden.

Basil seems to be the fastest one to grow. If you love basil and parsley, this would be a great kit for you! The AeroGarden pods are a fantastic way to garden indoors to always have fresh herbs to cook with.

6-Pod Seed Kit Reviews

Just like the 3-pod seed kit, a few people are having issues getting some of the herbs to grow.

Many reviews state that they love it! The herbs taste great, and they grow very rapidly.

AeroGarden Gourmet Herb 6-Pod seems to be the best with product quality, and healthiness of the seeds.

“I have ordered this many times – never had any problems. This last order had loose pods, which means I am not sure what seeds are in them. I’m hoping to figure it out once the plants begin to grow. I’m also hoping the seeds stayed in the pods while they got shuffled around inside the box.” 

Grow parsley indoors with a hydroponic system.

The main issue with the seed kits is that when they arrive, they have been tossed around so much during the shipping process that the seeds fall out of their holders.

However, if this happens to you, you can try googling what each seed should look like, and place them back into the proper holder. Or, ask for a replacement.

9-Pod Seed Kit Review

“Love these plants!!! Great combo and so good.”


AeroGarden Gourmet Herb 9-Pod kit tends to have good reviews. A few people had an issue with the chives growing, but they can be finicky either way.

          “I have had an Aerogarden for several years, following the example of my sister. I love growing the fresh herbs right on my kitchen counter.”

        “The packets from Amazon are a terrific deal, assuming you want the herb selection they provide. You can’t beat the price for nine seed pods plus the grow solution.”


            “My only less than perfect score is because you cannot mix and match the various herb choices. But for the price, you still can’t beat it.”

            “The Aerogarden is very easy to use and produce fresh herbs quickly. Once you read the directions, and they aren’t that hard.
They suggest you clean and replant the herbs about monthly and this has been easy and has added benefits. I gently remove the plants and trim the roots back and cover them with a damp towel while I wash out everything Then I restart and the herbs are even more lush.”

If you want a wide variety of herbs, the 9-pod is the best route.
