Grofresh Kitchen Garden Review & Giveaway

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!

The Grofresh Kitchen System comes in 4 colours; white, yellow, blue and green and one of you will get to choose which would best suit your kitchen as I have one to giveaway to one lucky reader.
