Hydroponic gardening is soilless gardening and has been around since the hanging gardens of Babylon thousands of years ago.
With soaring food costs many home enthusiasts are rediscovering the benefits of hydroponic gardening today because it is easy to do, requires very little maintenance and gives higher yields.
So the roots don't have to do any work to look through the soil for their food. The roots are constantly getting fed so you get much larger plants and faster growth.
You can actually get a starter kit for right around a hundred bucks and you'll be amazed at everything you can grow right in your kitchen!
A lot of people are doing most of their whole entire food. They're doing tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, eggplants and beans. You can do anything. You can basically have a three car garage full of an entire garden.
Hydroponic gardening can be done 365 days a year, so you can start your basil or lettuce and much more right now. You can move it outside to containers with soil in the summer if you want, or you just might find that it's more fun being a hydroponic farmer inside!
Do it... it's so easy. It's easier than soil. You don't have to do anything. Just fill up your nutrients and go out of town. Your plants will grow.
The cool thing about hydroponic gardening is you do not have to have a green thumb. You can't overwater! We'll see you next week.
