About AeroGrow International, Inc

The Story of AeroGrow

Growing fresh food and flowers lifts the spirit and nurtures the soul. But for most people, the nurturing ends when winter begins. AeroGrow founder Michael Bissonnette said, "Wouldn't it be great to have fresh herbs, flowers and veggies growing in your home, any time of year?". So he and a group of like-minded innovators married that notion to aeroponics, a highly efficient gardening technology in which plants grow in water, nutrients and air.

After four years, dozens of prototypes, and hundreds of seed evaluations, the AeroGarden was born and today there are over 500,000 enthusiastic AeroGarden customers. Michael is awed by the response. "It's amazing", he says. "We grew some basil, and started a revolution."

Corporate Overview

AeroGrow is the creator, manufacturer, and marketer of the AeroGarden line of indoor gardens for consumer markets worldwide.

The AeroGarden line is sold primarily through our direct-to-the-consumer efforts via our own catalog, the web, and through TV commercials and infomercials. In addition, AeroGardens are sold through retailers worldwide, including Amazon, Ace and Canadian Tire and TV home shopping networks including QVC.

All of our gardening products feature our proprietary technology which allows consumers to garden indoors, year round, with no dirt, no weeds, and no green thumb needed. AeroGardens are complete indoor gardening systems with built-in, full spectrum grow lights, custom time-release nutrients, auto-feed, water and lighting systems, and "smart garden" consumer alerts for guaranteed success.

Since launching our first product in March 2006 we have sold almost 1 million AeroGardens and have expanded our product line to include multiple gardens with different form factors, price points, and consumer benefits.

AeroGrow also develops, manufactures and markets a variety of consumable products for use in its gardens. These seed kits, lights, nutrients and accessory products provide ongoing, repeat sales to the Company and generate continued engagement and interest from our user base. These repeat sales now account for approximately 35% of corporate revenues.

AeroGrow was founded in July 2002 and became a publicly-traded company on February 24, 2006. AeroGrow is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado and employs approximately 45 people.
