What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water without soil. Minerals and nutrients are added to the water so the plants produce fruits and vegetables. Your HydroVeg Kit is easy to build, needs little ground space as it is vertical and needs no digging or weeding.
This is gardening of the future.... it is space saving, water saving, doesnt rely on soil and so quick and easy in todays BUSY world.
Grow Herbs, flowers and more
Herbs like curly parsley and small leafed basil grow beautifully in our kit, too. They don’t take up much space and retain more of their aromatic oils when grown in hydroponic systems, so you get more flavour.
How about creating a hanging wall of colour in the summer months by planting flowers in the Kit. Its amazing! Create and recreate a different display every day - just by moving the pots around...and remember there is NO SOIL!!!

What is Hydroponics?
Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, which is the growing of plants in a soil-less environment. Hydroponic growing uses mineral nutrient solutions to feed the plants in water, without soil. There are several methods of hydroponic growing.
The HydroVeg Kit system uses the Nutrient Film Technique. This is where a constant flow of the mineral solution is pumped from a reservoir into the growing tubes. The growing tubes require no growing medium. The roots draw up the nutrients from the flowing solution. The downward flow pours back into the reservoir to be recycled. The plants get oxygen, water and nutrients for healthy growth.
