Here’s an inexpensive way to cut your cost of AeroGarden sponges in half by using the biodome sponges from ParkSeed. In my opinion they work better too, and can be used for more growing applications. I’m not d with Park Seed, but want to share this tip because it saves me a lot of money.

The size that you need are the biodome 60 cell refill size sponge.

links before are .

You can get these from :

or Park Seed:

Check prices, sometimes one may be cheaper than the other given shipping costs, specials, etc…

To get the AeroGarden white baskets than the sponges fit into, look for them in :

or the AeroGarden website:

The AeroGarden sponges can be found on

Hi this is Peter Stanley, welcome to my channel Today I want to share a tip on saving money with the AeroGarden sponges and by that I mean these, this is what you when you buy a pod kit that's see in here seeds go in the little hole there you can buy your own sponges, start your own seeds just drop into the white basket and what I use is the biodome refill sponges the 60 cell size and they work really well I've been only use these for several months now and I haven't had any problems they're approximately the same size they're a tad bit longer and a little wider but these are really dense and these are more spongy so really, density you know considering the density they're about the same so with these you would just put your seeds in the hole just like you would with the AeroGarden sponge stick in there, because they're a little wider usually they'll push in all the way, but if not you can kind of just pull them down. and they'll expand a little and fill the hole so you're not going to have any gaps they also work really well in the seed starting deck and actually I think they work better in the seed starting decks than the AeroGarden I'll put some links in the description on where to find these I'll put links to Amazon and links directly to Park Seed and also the AeroGarden site The Amazon links are affiliate links so any purchases through there I would earn something so wanted to let you know, but It's approximately, I don't want to give prices cause they change but they're probably half the cost of the AeroGarden sponges and when you buy them you get a a pack of 120 looks like this it's the one I'm working on now and they're all really consistently shaped size and they're made for their biodome kits but they work really well in the AeroGarden and one thing you want to do is shop around sometimes Park Seed will have specials discount on the actually sponges, and sometimes they'll have specials for free shipping or so much percentage off or whatever so you could save sometimes more going through Park Seed, sometimes you can save going through Amazon they're usually, the base price on Amazon is usually little higher, but you get free shipping so just you know check prices before you you buy and I'm not an affiliate with Park Seed but I just let you know, if you join their newsletter you'll get specials emails all the time give you a heads up if they have a deal also, AeroGrow is the place to go, aerogarden.com or Amazon to get their sponges, and they do work really well they do cost more, so if you go through a lot of these, it'd probably save it would payoff to just get the Park Seed sponges but I've been using them for everything all of my AeroGardens my seed starting deck even my Kratky, a lot of my Kratky containers I really like them a lot, also one other thing you can do with them is actually easier, than with these is if you wanted to kind of wrap this around like a cutting so say you want to wrap it around a cutting or whatever, you just kind of stick this down and then you could could wrap that around your stem and then stick than down in here stick it in your AeroGarden or another container or whatever anyway, I just wanted to share that It's something I use a lot and I mention it a lot in my videos but I just wanted to share that in case anyone hadn't see it anyway, I hope you found that useful and thank you for watching and please like, comment and subscribe

Saving the planet and saving money go hand-in-hand when you reduce your home heating bill.

Step 1: Get your furnace tuned up
Get your furnace tuned up before winter sets in. Doing this annually will keep your furnace running efficiently.

Step 2: Install a programmable thermostat
Install a programmable thermostat so you can lower the heat when no one is home and at night while everyone is sleeping.

Tip
Lowering the heat to 72 degrees and putting on a sweater is a carbon-free, money-saving way to stay cozy.

Step 3: Use curtains to regulate heat
Close curtains and quilted blinds at night to help keep heat from escaping through windows. Open them during the day to let in the sun’s warmth.

Step 4: Cover your heating system
Use a boiler blanket and pipe insulation to keep heat inside the heating system where it belongs. Before using a blanket, consult your owner’s manual—make sure the blanket you plan to use is safe for your boiler.

Tip
Ask your gas or electric company if they do free energy audits, in which they appraise each room for its energy efficiency and make cost-cutting recommendations.

Step 5: Look into utility company rebates
Look into your utility company’s efficiency programs. Many will pay for programmable thermostats and some even subsidize roof insulation.

Step 6: Seal cracks
Hold a piece of toilet paper near windows and door frames to check for drafts. Sealing cracks with weather stripping can save big bucks.

Tip
If you improve your home’s energy efficiency by replacing an old boiler, furnace, or water heater, or by investing in storm windows and doors, you’re entitled to an energy tax credit.

Step 7: Fill outdoor cracks
Review the outside of your home for cracks that are draining heat and caulk them.

Step 8: Clean radiators
Keep baseboard heaters and radiators clean and make sure your furniture and curtains are not blocking the vents.

Step 9: Centralize your winter life
Since pioneer times many a family has found warmth by gathering around a stove in winter. If you live in a big house, try sealing off little used rooms and/or an entire wing when the snow flies.

Did You Know?
Lowering your thermostat to 68 degrees while you’re at work can decrease your heating bill by 12 percent.
