I have always tried to grow my own fruit in the garden.  It’s so much nicer to be able to pick fruit that is not covered in pesticides and that you have grown yourself.  The sense of achievement in really satisfying.  Unfortunately I haven’t had so much luck with growing herbs indoors, in fact I have failed miserably with seeds not spouting (partly thanks to the children taking a look and knocking them out of plates and trays), seedlings if we have manged to get that far being drowned by too many over zealous waterers, or dried out as if they had been left in the Sahara because we each though someone else had watered them.

Naturally when the guys at Wizal who have a fabulous product called Grofresh Kitchen Gardens got in contact and asked me if I could review for them I was keen although anxious in case I totally messed it up.  I needn’t had worried though looking back and you’ll see why.

The grofresh kitchen gardens allow budding gardeners and foodies like myself to grow a whole array of fresh herbs, salad leaves, fruits and flowers in their own home – and provided you follow the super simple instructions so you won’t be killing off any plants just yet either.

You don’t need to worry about remembering to water or over watering which is great.

There isn’t much to the set up so with minimal effort you will be ready to get those seeds planted and wait for your indoor garden of tasty goodies or pretty flowers to grow.

Set Up

Step 1

Fitting the Biolite

The biolite is pre-assembled so you simply insert it into the base found on the growtop.  It takes seconds!

It is preprogrammed to stay on for 16 hrs and off for 8.  There is a touch button on the power base to turn the light off should you wish. Turn it on and it will stay on from 16 hrs from that time.

Step 2

Add your Water or Water and Nutrients

Measure 1.3 litres of clean water and add 10ml of the nutrients provided. Make sure the growtop is placed on the growtank before filling otherwise it could create bubbles and prevent the gardener system from working.  Remove the water filter cap to fill then replace it so dust doesn’t enter.

Step 3

Preparing the Hydrocels

Remove the 3 Celpod Hydrocels (larger disc shaped one) and the 3 Biocel Hydrocels (longer thin one) and place in clean water until fully saturated and soft to the touch.

Squeeze out excess water and replace the Celpod Hydrocels making sure to secure them with the feet.

Cut approx. 1 cm into the top of the Biocel Hydrocel and insert some seeds then replace the Hydrocel into the Biocel.  Cover with the Biodome.  This remains over the Celpod until the seedlings start to grow.

You can also insert plant plugs into the Biocels should you prefer.

As mentioned there is no need to worry about watering.  The system has 3 watering settings an the pump systems is so quite the likelihood is you won’t hear it.  To check if it is working properly just look out for the flashing green led light.

This smart system will let you know when the water is running low and needs refilling.  Once set up, plug the system in, put the light on and you are ready to grow!

It won’t be long before you have your own little herb, fruit, flower garden in your kitchen.

These take no time at all, don’t take up space, you don’t need to worry about soil getting all over work surfaces.  To sum it up they are a great idea!

  1. Wooo I think I’d have to try baby tomatoes 🍅 first. I love the smell of them picked fresh from the vine. Fingers crossed 🤞

  2. It would be wonderful to have a fresh supply of cherry tomatoes and Little Gem lettuce to use in salads throughout summer.

  3. I always wondered how these worked – thanks!
    I’d grow herbs for kitchen – basil and oregano plus another or more basil!

  4. I would absolutely love to grow herbs! Not only do they smell good, but you can use them in so many dishes! Perfect for summer salads!

  5. This looks brilliant. I only have pots in my garden and have struggled with fruit and veg. I’d love to try salad vegetables first- probably tomatoes or lettuce.

  6. It would be lovely to be able to pick fresh herbs when I’m cooking, so I’d start by growing a selection of herbs.

  7. This is such a great idea, I have never seen this before. We had to home school our son for a while and gardening was his favourite subject so he would love this too. He would probably grow peppers in it as his peppers never came to much.

  8. I’d like to grow herbs mainly different mints at this time of year to put in the pan with new potatoes.

    1. Great idea. I bought salad leaves but should also add mint as I eat that quite often and it would be great to pick it as and when I need it.

  9. I’ve always wanted a little garden but don’t have one because I live in the city so this would be perfect to have in my kitchen to grow the herbs, fruit and veg I like

  10. This looks amazing, I’ve never heard of it before. I’d love to have a go at basil as it doesn’t survive the winter in the garden. And chives as well as I put them in everything!

  11. I live in a flat so this would be wonderful to enable me to grow some herbs or even salad veg, as I have no garden or balcony.

  12. Strawberries if that’s possible? I have never succeeded, would love to grow tomatoes and mini peppers too.

  13. Amazing design! I love fresh basil, I add it to everything! So that would be my first choice, followed by cherry tomatoes.

  14. This year, i have found supermarket tomatoes too be a bit bland with none of that wonderful scent – so, i would grow some tomatoes xx

  15. I have never seen or heard of this device before but looks great. Id love to grow some herbs or maybe strawberries!

  16. What a great item never seen one before. I think I would start my chilies off in it and maybe try starting off some lupins. The list is endless really.

  17. There are so many things I would love to grow in here! From Cherry Tomatoes, strawberries, radishes, peppers……the list goes on!

  18. Aa much as i would probably just for fo a selection of herbs that i would regularly use (basil, chives, thyme, sage) i would also love to be a bit more adventurous and grow some interesting varieties of tiny tomatoes !

  19. I’ve just had a go with growing my own herbs from already established ones bought in the supermarket – what a disaster! mud all over my sink and they were all dead within 3 days! This looks like a good idea so will check on Amazon and see if it’s on there yet – thank you.

  20. I think I’d probably grow herbs. We live in a tiny flat so this would be great in the kitchen windowsill and it means I wouldn’t kill another plant!

  21. How cool is this?! I think even I could grow something with one of these. I wonder if I could grow strawberries in it. That would be the first thing I would try I think.

  22. I’d try to grow pak choi or okra in the grofresh kitchen system because I struggle to grow these outside in the garden.

  23. I think it would be tomatoes or herbs! What a fabulous idea. I don’t have a greenhouse and this is a great way to grown your own on a windowsill!
