The early months of the coronavirus pandemic turned a lot of us into gardeners: Planting and tending to a modest plot of herbs or veggies was a soothing way to pass the time outside during the warmer months (whether you had a green thumb or not).
But don’t feel like you need to pack it up just because the fall’s first frost is lurking around the corner: With a sleek hydroponic setup from AeroGarden, you can keep growing your precious plant babies right on your desk or kitchen countertop, and with minimal maintenance on your part. (One of the brand’s models nabbed the No. 1 spot our roundup of the best indoor gardens, FWIW — they’re super easy to use in almost any environment.)
AeroGarden is almost always running a 20% off promotion on its website, but we managed to find even better deals on its systems at Best Buy and Amazon — here’s the scoop:
Released in January alongside the Bounty Basic (below), the standard Bounty features the largest water bowl capacity of any countertop AeroGarden model, a one-touch Vacation Mode, and dimmable, automated lights that mimic sunrise and sunset. It comes equipped with a full-color, high-res touchscreen control panel that displays your plants’ vital statistics (like water level and days planted), though you can also control using the free AeroGarden App or just your voice — it’s compatible with the Amazon Alexa smart assistant.
Normally $399.95, you can score one at Best Buy for only $229.99 — a 42% savings.
The Bounty Basic is almost identical to the standard Bounty, only with slimmer, slightly less powerful grow lights, a digital display with one-touch button controls, and no Alexa or WiFi compatibility.
This model is already a decent value for its size at an MSRP of $299.95, but for a limited time, you can order one from either Amazon or Best Buy for only $199.99 — a 33% savings.
Perfect for apartments and dorm rooms, the compact Harvest 360 sports backlit buttons with care reminders and a full-spectrum, automated grow light that turns off and on as needed.
Snag one on sale at Amazon for just $99.95 — that’s 33% off its suggested retail price of $149.95.
