AeroGarden Hits the Big Screen in Top Grossing Movie

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - December 20, 2007) - AeroGrow International, Inc. (NASDAQ: AERO) ("AeroGrow" or the "Company"), makers of the AeroGarden® line of indoor gardening products, announced that the AeroGarden is prominently shown in multiple scenes in the post-apocalyptic hit movie "I Am Legend" starring two-time Oscar nominee, Will Smith. The appearance was unsolicited.

"I Am Legend," distributed by Warner Bros.®, opened nationwide on December 14, 2007 and brought in more than $76.5 million its opening weekend to capture first place in the weekend box-office rankings.

"Appearing in such a major movie is another indication of the AeroGarden's growing acceptance into the mainstream consciousness," said Michael Bissonnette, Founder and CEO of AeroGrow. "It's been rewarding to launch a new product category and watch as it becomes integrated into society, from the first early-adopters through more common household adoption of AeroGrow's products." With a smile, Bissonnette added, "In the movie, pretty much the only things left on earth are Will Smith, his dog and his AeroGarden."
