What is Hydroponics? If you are not already familiar with the term Hydroponics’ it is the practice of growing plants in gravel, sand and even liquid using added nutrients. If your garden is limited by seasonal constraints, Hydroponics maybe the answer for you! Growing hydroponically enables you to manipulate nature in your favour as well as for the wellbeing of your plants. It is not just about what fertilisers you are feeding your plants, it’s about the maintenance and sustaining of a controlled environment. By carefully manipulating natural light cycles, temperature and humidity, it enables you to harvest your garden all year round - no more seasonal constraints! You can even harvest multiple times a year providing your system is maintained correctly. Typically, Hydroponics is performed indoors using ‘tents’ as it provides greater control over your garden environment. This level of environmental control is undoubtedly a valuable asset to today’s society as the demand for food increases alongside the growing population. What other advantages does Hydroponics offer? Believe it or not, on average, plants that are grown using hydroponic methods exhibit healthier overall growth, growing up to 2 times faster, as well as providing a significantly better nutritional value crop. So not only do you get to harvest all year round, your crop quality will be increased alongside your overall yield; all your efforts maintaining your Hydroponic garden will definitely payoff.

What does it take to run a Hydroponic Garden? Surprisingly, maintaining a Hydroponic garden is a lot less labour than your traditional soil based garden or greenhouse. Although some technical knowledge is required, it doesn’t take long to grasp the basic methods and concepts of hydroponics. One thing to remember is that hydroponics is only as complicated as you want to make it. Is Hydroponics Organic? Many people ask ‘is hydroponics an organic method of growing?’ The short answer is yes, however it does depend on your gardening practices in which this may vary. Although you might not be using soil and are using a liquid medium to grow your plants, the liquid acts as a nutrient carrier for your plants just like soil, except in its liquid form it is available almost immediately for plants to uptake via their root mass unlike soil based mediums. Should I try Hydroponics? Experiencing the benefits of hydroponics compared to traditional farming is a great way of educating yourself and others of the vital role it could play in the near future for both commercial and hobbyist growers. Hydroponics is also a great hobby to get into if you prefer more relaxed, stress-relieving activities. It can even be a brilliant way of spending quality time with family as well as learning for children.
