Transplanting tomatoes

Forums: 

Many northeasterns grow tomatoes and since the planting season begins so late a lot of varites of tomatoes don't fruit until august.

 My thought is to start the plants indoors, in an aerogarden,  earlier in the season and give them a headstart. The problem is that the roots grow in 1 long strand. What is the best way, if any, to bring that mature plant outside?

New Member and First Questions

Forums: 

Hi, new member about three weeks into my first Aerogarden Bounty with 7 herb pods and 2 lettuces. Everyone is doing pretty well so far it seems. Pruned the basils and dill the first time this morning.

My first question - My italian parsley did not sprout - what is the best way to re-plant? It seems like the plastic grow basket and domes can be re-used with a new sponge insert and seeds from a local dealer? Is the label with slits necessary for anything and is it reusable? It seems like it inhibits the plants from spreading much at the base.

"Coffee Hydro"

We have two Bounties and a Sprout. Here's how we are extending our growing without adding more Aerogarden units. This also allows us to grow larger plants like rosemary and holy basil (tulsi) in the pictures. We do this in several way. The picture of two used coffee containers shows one way. We drill a hole in the lid so the pod fits. We also drilled a hole for a 1/4" air hose and add an air stone attached to an air pump. For now we sit them close to the Aerogarden unit. We have found that the lights can be used to extend the growing area around the Aerogarden.

Cascading Petunias not growing

Forums: 

Only two of the seed pods germinated after 25 days.  The two that did look very healthy so long as I keep the covers on them.  Within two hours of removing them they look almost dead.   Aerogarden has sent me a replacement seed kit for my Bounty.  But I do not want to repeat my same experience. So, here are my questions?

FYI: I just replaced the water and added new fertilizer.  I have well water that I put through reverse osmosis filters that I use.  Water is basically the same as store bought water.

My Aerogarden Bounty LED WIFI

I purchased a new Aerogarden Bounty LED WIFI for my wife for Christmas. We setup the Bounty and started it up. It came with the gourmet herb garden. We had 8 plants sprout and one Basel did not sprout. Aerogarden customer service is fantastic. I called Emelia and she sent us a new Basel seed pod. It's growing great.
