- There are several methods for growing all sorts of
plants without the use of soil. These hydroponics techniques allow more
growing flexibility and can produce amazing results. Hydroponics is a
method of growing plants, herbs, fruit, vegetables and flowers without
the use of soil. Instead, nutrient-rich solutions are used to soak the
roots of the plant with the necessary nutrients and oxygen needed for
the plants to grow. You will find all of the different type of
Hydroponic growing methods in our Hydroponics section of our site.
and Outdoor Organics - Organic gardening is a simple
concept. It is gardening without the use of pesticides and non-organic
fertilizers. By eliminating potentially harmful products, organic
gardeners get the benefits of growing vegetables and herbs without the
risk of chemicals that are unhealthy and harmful to the environment.
While organic gardening can take a bit more work than other types of
gardening the benefits are worth the extra effort.
grown fruits and vegetables are higher in vitamins and other essential
nutrients. Organic gardening avoids the use of all harmful chemicals, so
you and your family can avoid the dangers of taking those chemicals into
your bodies. The long-term health benefits are numerous and important.
Finally, organic gardening keeps your local environment safe and
contributes to the health of the natural environment by eliminating
harmful chemicals that can enter the water system and pollute nature. We
provide extensive information on organic gardening and many products to
help you create a healthy, productive organic garden.
Key to Indoor Gardening - Probably the most important
factor to success in indoor gardening is light and plenty of it.
Sunlight is required for growing plants outdoors so it needs to be
replaced by proper lighting for the indoor garden. So replacing sunlight
requires light that immolates natural sunlight. Growing plants
require lots of light to grow well, and typical indoor lighting is
simply too dim for plant growth. Specialized light sources, designed
specifically for indoor gardening, are needed.
These come in two
basic forms. First, fluorescent grow lights can be used for some growing
situations. Special fluorescent bulbs provide the correct spectrum of
lighting for many types of plants, but not all plants thrive under
fluorescent grow lights, and multi-tube fixtures are generally needed.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting is the choice of most serious
indoor gardeners. Either Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium lamps,
along with matching reflectors and fixtures are readily available for
all sorts of growing situations.
By calling or visiting our retail store we will be able to
