Does anyone use the aerogarden to start their seeds?  I received a seed starting tray for one and wondered if their were any tips to using it. Do you like it, how soon before planting do you start your seeds?

Thanks, Deb

I tried it one year without much success.  The seeds grew fine - when it was time to harden some of them off the neighbors in the starter tray weren't ready.  ;<

I think with a bit of careful planning it would work fine.  I didn't realize how much longer it would take for peppers than tomatoes.  I had no idea how large some of the little leaves would get.  I planted all the seeds on the same day.  See where my problems came  from?  ;>

I got so frustrated I gave all my leftover seeds to a friend and resorted to buying at a local nursery.  ;<

Deb, Thanks for the advice.  I'll be sure to watch what I plant together.  Deb
