AeroGrow to Give Away 100 Free Gardens for Mother's Day

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - AeroGrow International, Inc. (NASDAQ: AERO), makers of the AeroGarden line of indoor gardening products, will make giving Mom the perfect gift for Mother's Day easy for 100 lucky people with their Mother's Day Garden Giveaway. One hundred moms across America will receive a free AeroGarden, in time for Mother's Day, compliments of AeroGrow.

AeroGardens are easy-to-use, guaranteed to grow, dirt-free indoor gardens that let anyone enjoy beautiful herb, vegetable, salad or flower gardens, all year long. The giveaway is part of AeroGrow's Recession Gardening Campaign, which encourages people to save money by growing their own herbs and vegetables at home.

Overall, gardening is gaining interest in the U.S., according to a new survey from the National Gardening Association. In fact, the number of Americans who plan to plant a garden this year has increased by 19%, with 21% of them brand new to gardening. Adding even more momentum, First Mom, Michelle Obama, recently planted a vegetable garden at the White House, the first since the Roosevelt administration.

"People love the AeroGarden," said Sylvia Bernstein, Vice President of Marketing for AeroGrow. "It's so easy that anyone can set it up. It grows so fast you can literally see it grow from day-to-day and harvest the freshest food for delicious meals at home. Kids really enjoy the AeroGarden too. AeroGardens not only teach them about gardening and plants, but they also make it fun for them to eat more healthy green veggies. As a mom, that's something I really appreciate."

Hundreds of thousands of people are now enjoying garden-fresh food, grown indoors in their own AeroGardens. The AeroGarden's fool-proof, dirt-free design is perfect for people who want to grow year-round regardless of the season. In addition, AeroGardens are ideal for people who live in apartments or condos without the space for an outdoor garden or for people who can no longer do the hard work required with a traditional dirt garden.
