AeroGrow AeroGarden with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit - All in one indoor growers delight

51nhCytPscL._AA280_.jpg

Don't have room for a outdoor garden, but love to grow things? This AeroGrow's AeroGarden garden kit makes it easy to cultivate herbs and vegetables in an energy-efficient, organic-based environment right in the kitchen. This kit includes everything the indoor farmer needs: a preseeded bio-dome grow pod, two daylight-spectrum bulbs, nutrients, and a helpful tending and harvesting guide complete with recipes. Just follow the simple instructions to set up, and the growing process starts immediately, with germination occurring within 24 hours and a mature plant that is ready faster than if grown in soil. The AeroGarden system monitors itself to create ideal growing conditions for each plant and alerts you when it's time to add more water and nutrients. No dirt or natural light is needed. What could be simpler?

Gilmour Mechanical Water Timer Turns Itself Off

61LI3mMudxL._SL500_AA280_.gif.jpeg

I've used this water meter for years. It's cheap; it shuts off automatically. Measures gallons or approximate minutes. The dial can be set for automatic shut off at any point up to 700 gallon or 4 hours. Includes manual On Off settings. Attaches to faucet, hose, or sprinkler. I use it particularly when trying to keep seed beds wet. The automatic shut off let's me go my way without having to come back and shut the faucet off.
