My new Aerogarden is here, and I couldn’t get it out of the box and set up fast enough last night!
So far, I’ve planted it with one pod of flowers, leaving the other two empty. My idea is to get those little flowers started (with the light nice and low to them) so I can transplant them into the other AeroGarden – in the hole left by my dead cilantro. Then start a whole new garden in there!
Let’s see if this germination/transplantation experiment works. :)
Here are my two AeroGardens side by side:
I’ve trimmed down the basil a lot, and I can’t wait to trim it down some more, so I can lower the light a little (to help the new flowers when they get transplanted there!) and hopefully encourage some new basil growth. But I am trying to wait! I don’t want to get over zealous here. :)
Also, AeroGarden suggests you change the grow light bulb every six months. I’ve had my first Aerogarden for over a year and hadn’t changed the bulb yet. I ordered new bulbs along with my new garden and changed the bulb last nigh. What a difference!
The old light bulb:
And the new light bulb:
I’m glad I changed it. Especially with the shiny new AeroGarden sitting next to it. Oh yeah, and to help the plants, too. :) :) :)
I’m excited to watch these babies grow, again! I will keep you updated. :)
