- $59 for a Smart Herb Garden ($99.95 value)
The Smart Herb Garden plugs into a wall socket to power its various applications. It measures the well-being and growth of the plants, automatically adjusting as needed the light from the overhead lamp, the Smart soil, and the water from the tank (filled monthly). This ensure the plants are getting the right amount of light, water, oxygen, and nutrients. Groupon customers receive three plant catridges—basil, thyme, and lemon balm—that they place into the pot.

Click & Grow
Coaxing a plant from seedling to leafy, delicious herb isn't always feasible when you live in an apartment or on a block that outlaws the color green. But Click & Grow removes all traditional obstacles to gardening—all you need is a space to put the plant. The most important part of Click & Grow's products is the soil, which was developed to keep roots well aerated and watered over long periods of time. Owners simply refill the pot's water tank when the indicator light notifies them. Otherwise, they can sit back and wait for their plants to mature into blooming flowers, flavorful basil, or even juicy strawberries, depending on the plant cartridges they've chosen.
