February Is "National Indoor Gardening Month"

Cure the "Winter Blues" With a Year 'Round Indoor Garden

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Feb 15, 2012) - AeroGrow International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AERO) ("AeroGrow" or the "Company"), makers of the AeroGarden® line of indoor gardening products, is celebrating the joys of gardening in winter with National Indoor Gardening Month this February.

"An indoor garden in the middle of winter is the perfect way to beat the winter blues and enjoy fresh herbs, flowers, salad greens -- even vine-ripened tomatoes -- no matter what it's like outside," said Mike Wolfe, CEO of AeroGrow. "AeroGardens are complete indoor gardens using advanced hydroponics with built-in grow lights and timers to take all the work, worry and specialized knowledge out of indoor gardening. National Indoor Gardening Month is a chance to highlight all the wonderful ways that indoor gardens can make a difference in people's lives, and February weather gives us the perfect time to make the point.

"Indoor gardens are much more than just a fun and engaging hobby," continued Mr. Wolfe. "They help home cooks produce tastier meals, with fresher produce and fewer trips to the store. And study after study shows that having plants in the home not only improves air quality but also significantly impacts people's levels of happiness. Plants just plain make people happy, and the AeroGarden is the simplest way to grow a very wide variety of plants with guaranteed success."

During National Indoor Gardening Month AeroGrow will host a variety of resources, including detailed webinars and videos, on indoor gardening at AeroGarden.com/IGM. Topics to be covered include how to set up an indoor garden, how to prune, pollinate and care for your gardens, and what kinds of plants you can grow.

AeroGrow manufactures and markets a full line of dirt-free indoor gardens and accessories that enable cooks, gardeners and hobbyists to grow fresh herbs, salad greens, flowers and even cherry tomatoes and peppers year round, regardless of weather. Gardens are fully automated and come with everything needed to grow, including built in grow lights.
