Best flowers to grow in aerogarden-Flowers add a splash of color to any room. With AeroGarden, you can have beautiful flowers inside your house all year long, not just in the spring.
I have grown many kinds of flowers in this smart indoor garden. They give your home a nice smell. People say that flowers can make you feel better, and flower arrangements are great last-minute gifts.
Flowers are not only beautiful but also very useful. So, I made this complete guide about what kinds of flowers you can grow in an AeroGarden, how to take care of them, how long they will live inside, and how to move them to your garden if you want to. In other words, this growing guide tells you everything you need to know about AeroGarden flowers.
Let’s get to it.
How do you grow flowers in an AeroGarden?
AeroGarden has many different flower seed pod kits that you can use to grow flowers. The easiest way to grow something in this indoor garden is to use pods that already have seeds in them. Some flowers, though, get taller than others. It’s easier to grow smaller flower types indoors. When your flowers get bigger, you will have to move them outside once they can handle the weather.
No matter what you want, AeroGarden can help you grow a wide range of flower types. I’ve made a list of seven of my favorite flowers to grow in an AeroGarden. With the Grow Anything Kit, you can choose to harvest these or your favorite plants. Having trouble figuring out which AeroGarden will work best for you? Check out our AeroGarden buyers guide.
The Best Flowers to Grow in AeroGarden
Petunias might be the most popular type of flower to grow in an AeroGarden. Inside your home, you can grow Cascading Petunia or Picobella Carmine Mini Petunia.
The Cascading Petunia seed pod kit contains three different colored blooms (pink, purple, and white) (pink, purple, and white). Picobella Carmine Mini Petunia, on the other hand, is part of the Love Blooms seed pod kit.
The Picobella Carmine is a delicate mini pink petunia. All AeroGarden models can be used to grow these flowers, which bloom quickly and look great. Like most AeroGarden flowers, Petunias are ready to be picked after a month, and you can keep picking them for almost six months.
You can move them to your garden outside in the spring if you want to.
A Snapdragon is another bright flower that can grow in an AeroGarden. Their name comes from the shape of their heads, which kind of look like a dragon’s nose.
The English Cottage Seed pod kit has a mix of different types of Snapdragon pods. You can also add Snapdragons if you want to your custom flower seed pod kit.
Depending on the type, these flowers can be anywhere from 6 to 48 inches tall when they are fully grown. So, it makes a lot of sense to move them outside when the weather is right. When planted outside, they do best in the spring and fall, but tend to slow down in the middle of summer.
Zinnias in red, white, and yellow
Zinnia seed pods come in three colors: red, white, and yellow. They look great in an indoor garden. Having pods that already have seeds in them makes it easy to grow these flowers. But zinnias can get quite tall, so you have to cut them back and pick them often (they look great in a vase). You can also move them outdoors.
When they are fully grown, beautiful Durango Orange Marigolds are about 10 inches tall. With the seed pods they give you, you can grow them in an AeroGarden. You can choose either the custom seed pod kit or the seed pod kits from Incredible Edibles for Marigolds.
Marigolds brighten up any dessert or salad. But the bottom petals are usually bitter. You can put the petals on top as a decoration.
Gypsophila, which is also called “baby’s breath,” is a great plant to put around the edges of your AeroGarden. It has tiny white flowers that cascade around the edges and add to any flower arrangement. Most of the time, they are used to highlight the brighter flowers in the middle of your smart garden.
Gypsophila needs to be cut back often so it doesn’t grow too big and overflow the sides (or front) of the AeroGarden. But cutting this plant back helps it grow back better.
Orange Gazanias come in seed kits, so it’s easy to plant them to brighten up your home. You can get them in the Mountain Meadows seed pot kit or in a custom seed pot.
Gazanias only get eight to ten trenches tall when they are fully grown, so you should make sure they get enough light. If you don’t, they might be hidden and not bloom as well.
Pansies are another kind of beautiful flower that comes in many bright colors. Since these flowers only get 6 to 9 inches tall, you can grow them inside to add color to your kitchen counter or a flower arrangement.
Using an AeroGarden to grow pansies:
Remember that you can’t buy seed kits, so you’ll have to make your own.
Just buy a “Grow Anything” kit and some pansy seeds.
Put three seeds in each grow sponge and plug them into the grow baskets with the dome.
Click it in the AeroGarden, and the plants will start to grow.
