Introduction to Hydroponics Tim Calvert of Hydrofarm

Have you ever dreamed of gardening without weeding…? How about maximizing productivity in a small space? Hydroponics is more than growing plants “in water”: it’s the science and art of controlling all your gardening inputs (water, nutrients, temperature, light, even atmospheric gases) to get your plants growing at their absolute ultimate potential—for speed of growth, volume of harvest, and yes, even nutrient content and flavor. Whether you want to grow exotics that don’t flourish locally, or harvest luscious tomatoes in winter, a hydroponics system can be the way to go. Hydrofarm has been the industry’s leader since 1977, pioneering hydroponics for both mega greenhouse operations and for homeowners with limited space and resources. Let Tim introduce you to this growing field! Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave N Shoreline W 98133 206-546-4851
