DIY HYDROPONIC GARDENS
Author: Tyler Baras8973
DIY Hydroponic Gardens takes the mystery out of growing in water.
With practical information aimed at home DIYers, author Tyler Baras (“Farmer Tyler” to his fans) shows exactly how to build, plant, and maintain more than a dozen unique hydroponic systems, some of which cost just a few dollars to make. Growing produce without soil offers a unique opportunity to have a productive garden indoors or in areas where the soil is not present.
An expert in hydroponics, Baras has developed many unique and easy-to-build systems for growing entirely in water. In DIY Hydroponic Gardens, he shows with step-by-step photos precisely how to create these systems and how to plant and maintain them. All the information you need to get started with your home hydroponic system is included, from recipes for nutrient solutions to light and ventilation sources to specific plant-by-plant details that explain how to grow the most popular vegetables in a self-contained, soilless system.
Even if you live in an area where water is scarce, a hydroponic system is an answer you’ve been looking for. Hydroponic systems are sealed and do not allow evaporation, making water loss virtually nonexistent.
I have read most of the book now and found exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a way to plant strawberries so I didn't have to bend down to pick them and the slugs wouldn't get them. Not only did this book tell me how, it gave me other ideas as well. All instructions are included and that's wonderful. Great appendix in the back with more info.
