Table Top Herb Garden

Now don’t be intimidated by this brainy tabletop herb garden. The Smart Herb Garden is so easy to use that the New York Times compares it to changing a printer cartridge. In fact there aren’t even any tips to give, because the Smart Herb Garden essentially grows itself.

Cultivated Plug and Play
To cultivate your herbs (basil, thyme and lemon balm are provided), all you need to do is pop in the plant cartridges, add water to the tank, plug it in, and admire how cool it looks. The integrated adjustable LED light offers just the right spectrum while the Smart Herb Garden’s sensors manage the whole process. Go and grow.


When you’re ready for new plants, just replace the old cartridges with new ones. click-and-grow-planter-technology_does_all_work

Smart soil too.
The soil itself is a NASA-worthy nanotech growth medium that consistently provides the perfect amount of water, oxygen and nutrients. If you forget about it, The Smart Herb Garden has your back–it attentively measures the health of your plants while you are at work, at play, or both.
