AeroGrow Expands Distribution to Brookstone, Hammacher Schlemmer, Herrington and Plow & Hearth Catalogs

Adds to Existing Catalog Distribution Including Frontgate, SkyMall, Discovery Channel Stores, Gaiam, Gardener's Supply Company, Sur La Table and Others; to Date More Than 115 Million Consumers Reached via Major Consumer Catalogs

BOULDER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 25, 2007 -- AeroGrow International, Inc. (OTCBB: AGWI) ("AeroGrow"), makers of the AeroGarden™ kitchen garden appliance, announced today that four major companies have been added to the growing list of catalogs featuring the AeroGarden. The new additions are: Brookstone, Hammacher Schlemmer, Herrington and Plow & Hearth.

Brookstone featured the AeroGarden in a full-page ad, and Herrington dedicated their entire back cover to the AeroGarden (click to view the Brookstone or Herrington ads). Hammacher Schlemmer and Plow & Hearth both featured the AeroGarden in display ads as well.

Michael Bissonnette, founder and CEO of AeroGrow, said, "Catalogs manage their advertising space carefully to maximize sales and profits. They generally give their largest space and most prominent positions to products they believe have the greatest profit potential. So we're excited that these leading catalogers are featuring the AeroGarden in such prime locations."

These four companies add to existing distribution of the AeroGarden through industry leaders such as Frontgate, SkyMall, Discovery Channel, Gaiam, Gardener's Supply Company, Sur La Table and more. In total, these catalogs have reached more than 115 million consumers since the AeroGarden first appeared in catalogs in April 2006.

Mr. Bissonnette continued, "In the ten months since launching the AeroGarden we've been introduced to tens of millions of consumers by more than 20 leading catalogs. To be so enthusiastically embraced by so many different catalog companies across a broad spectrum of markets, from Housewares to Culinary, Lawn & Garden, Health, New Products and more, is a tribute to the AeroGarden's mass appeal. We believe this level of national exposure is extremely rare for a new product introduction and continues to increase our product awareness and credibility among both consumers and retailers."

Catalogs are one of six current multi-channel sales initiatives being used to launch the AeroGarden. The others include retail distribution (including through housewares, kitchen, culinary and lawn & garden stores and chains), television home shopping channels (QVC), 30-minute infomercials, web marketing, and ongoing public relations activities.
