You can grow anything you like ( lettuce, radish, beans, and the list goes on.)And the best part it is on wheels

so you can follow the sun all year round.

Just about the easiest way to grow Hydroponically.

Julie’s 3 Pot System Garden


This is a very simple way to grow in a very small area. I grew these Cherry Tomatoes in a small corner in my back garden. The idea is simple, the bottom tub holds the water with the nutrients the next tub is a spacer with a hole in it ti put the pump in and the top tub hold the expanded clay to grow my vegetables.

Rainbow Silverbeet                                                                   Has very red roots

This System like most Hydroponis systems works with nutrient filled water being pumped up and gravity bring it back to the reservoir. All these were grown from very small seedling 2 weeks ago. They should be ready to harvest in another 3 weeks. I have the system on a timer going on for 30 minutes every 2 hours starting at 7 am and finishing at 7 pm and resting in the water filled pipes over night. I am using Canna Vega at the rate of 2mm per litre of A+B ( 120mm of each into 60 litres of water) all grown in expanded clay. If I was growing anything that has a flower ( Tomatoes Eggplant ETC ) I would change to Canna Flores at the same rate when the flower started to appear.

Sarah’s Tomatoes

Sarah came into the shop and asked me to make her a small hydroponic system and this is the result. A large tomatoe plant with strawberries and basil.
