I thought I would give the HydroGarden a go over winter. It's a small all-in-one hydroponic growing kit with a built in lamp.
I popped basil seeds into one container and corriander into the other a couple of weeks ago and they are just starting to sprout.
It's all very easy to set up and use.
But one improvement in the kit I would like to see is that it has a built in timer for shutting off each night but you still have to remember to turn it on each morning. I would have liked fully automatic operation, particularly for when you go away. I've already forgotten to put it on a couple of times.
Hi, great results @Isobel.
@JasonI have purchased two propagating boxes from Bunnings and a heat mat from Vasili's Garden Centre and I'm getting ready to sow some of my Spring seeds including Chillies.
I have my garlic growing along with my broad beans, mint and there is plenty of self sown parsley coming up, but
I haven't done much in the garden lately because of the weather.
I seem to be feeling it more as I age
I thought this was a vintage telephone at first glance lol... but such a great way to grow herbs! Excellent idea!! 😉😀👌🧚♀️
