I can never buy the right amount of cilantro and parsley — I either buy too little and compromise the dish or buy too much and they rot over the few days as I try to use them up. Since I can’t grow a garden in my apartment, my best bet is something like AeroGarden’s Ultra Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit — on sale today for $135. The countertop LED gardening kit is 35% off of its average price since 2017 ($206) today. You can grow up to seven plants concurrently in the pod, and AeroGarden starts you off with a beginner seed kit that includes Genovese basil, Thai basil, thyme, mint, curly parsley, chives, and dill. I don’t know about you, but I use five of those almost every single day — being able to pluck sprigs off the plant whenever could really freshen up anyone’s cooking. The kit reminds you when to water and feed the plants, and timers know when to light up or turn off the 30-watt LED lights designed to give your plants the sun they need. On top of all that, the AeroGarden Ultra boasts a 4.3-star average rating from more than 500 reviews. You don’t need a lawn to garden and today’s Amazon sale on the AeroGarden Ultra is a great way to start making your own herbs and taking control of your culinary creations.
