A hydroponics kit is not much use without any seeds and we supply several different seeds packed together at a superb price. Normally, each packet of seeds would cost £2.50 in a garden centre or superstore, so a set of 10 would cost at least £25 but we can offer them for less than half price.
Thinking about growing herbs? Why not try growing some fruit? Pick strawberries from your machine even in winter! These seeds can be planted at anytime of the year and these now come from a small UK supplier who has hand-packed every seed, just for us.
The herbs are:
Dill, Common Cress, Peppermint, Parsley, Basil, Coriander, Oregano, Rosemary, Sage & French Thyme.
These give you a fair chance of germinating many different seeds over a period of months and deciding what to do with the surplus. All are suitable for the machine and don't forget to prune early so that they bush out, rather than upwards. In a few weeks you will be harvesting your first crop of many of the plants.
At the very beginning, we strongly recommend filling your machine to 80% (3.5L mark on the 7 pod) whilst awaiting the first germination to avoid over-soaking the seeds. Once germination has happened, fill the machine to full with nutrient-rich water.
