Growing foods such as Strawberries, Tomatoes and herbs hydroponically has proven so successful that the majority of fruit on sale in shops today is produced in this manner. This is also a major reason that foods that were once seasonal can now be enjoyed year round. Growing food at home is immensely satisfying and what’s more, you know that your food hasn’t travelled halfway around the globe, you can be sure that it hasn’t been...
sprayed with pesticides and you can pick it when it’s ready to be picked so it’s also guaranteed to be nice and ripe! In terms of taste, hydroponic food is every bit as tasty as soil grown, and there are no seasons to have to tailor your crops around. Growing your food in a hydroponic system provides increased crop yield and a faster growth cycle, so you get a greater return, and you get it more regularly.

The Aerogarden kit is incredibly easy to set up and comes pre-programmed so all you have to do is add water and nutrients. It will even tell you when it needs topping up with nutrient. The Autopot system in this section features a 15 litre pot capable of supporting a much larger plant so is perfect for anyone looking to supply a busier kitchen or for those simply wishing to grow a larger range of crops.
One of the main benefits of the Autopot system is the ease with which additional pots can be added to your growing area once you find the demand for your fresh tomatoes increasing! The Autopot system works by using gravity to feed the pots so you do not need to worry about buying a larger pump, and because each pot is controlled by an individual aqua valve, adding more pots to your system...
is as simple as purchasing another module and a 4mm t-piece and branching it off of your existing system.
With the Autopot system, you can dedicate a pot to Strawberries, a pot to Herbs, a pot to Tomatoes, a pot to Melons, a pot to Cucumbers, and so on! If you feel that it is time to move to a more sophisticated system in which you have greater control over your crops, then check out our full range of Hydroponic Systems.
