Hydroponics - Clean, Green and Healthy

One Stop Grow Shop – The Hydroponics Grower’s Ultimate resource

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a mineral-rich, water-based nutrient solution - no soil required. It's a method that produces stable, fast-growing, healthy plants that are easy to harvest and produce remarkable yields. Hydroponics allows a grower to optimise plant growth on a continual basis - every minute of every day! This ensures that plants are always growing, or producing flowers, fruits or vegetables at a maximal rate.

Hydroponics may have its roots as early in history as the hanging gardens of Babylon. Water pumped around the gardens fed and watered the arrangement of plants. Today, hydroponics is used as a means of getting the most agricultural or horticultural produce out of a given space and limited resources. With an ever increasing global population, one day it may be that hydroponics techniques will be one of the keys to feeding a planet which is full of humans. Already, many market gardeners and restaurateurs grow their own herbs and vegetables using hydroponics in order to ensure freshness and ultimate quality for their customers, in the quantities that they need.
