At-home gardening can be a difficult feat in small spaces or in homes with little light. Indoor gardening systems are a good workaround: They’re tiny enough for the most cramped apartments and often come with built-in lights.
Your brain might go right to Aerogarden when you think of smart gardens (same here, tbh), but some non-Aerogarden alternatives are, frankly, just as good. One of them is Click and Grow, a Kickstarter-funded smart garden that comes with a built-in watering system and an LED grow light. It’s hydroponic, which means it doesn’t involve soil — just seed pods, water, and (if you want) plant food.
As of Sept. 15, two Click and Grow systems were on sale at Best Buy: a three-pod option for $79.99 (a $20 savings) and the real star of the show, a nine-pod option for $129.99 (a $70 savings).
Smart gardens were a bit hard to come by in the spring, likely because people wanted to grow their own veggies at the beginning of lockdown, so it’s notable to see them not only in stock, but available at a discount.
The nine-pod smart garden comes with a set of seed pods to get you started: three pods each of basil, tomatoes, and greens. If you want other veggies, flowers, or herbs, you’ll have to buy them separately. Click and Grow has lots of options, but availability varies by retailer.
This garden is generally priced at $199.99, but you’ll pay $129.99 — a $70 savings.
There’s also a three-pod version on sale, which fits — you guessed it — three seed capsules. It comes with three basil pods.
This garden usually sells for $99.99, but you’ll pay $79.99 — a $20 savings.
